    Hi,

    today I have found a bug in MePo 1.2.0 Alpha.
    I have configured MePo to use the AC3 stream when it is available (see attachment). It works most of the time but in some cases it doesn't. Please have a look at the logs, first i have tuned to ORF1 (there it worked), then i have tuned to PRO7 and there the automatic selection failed (Mpeg1 stream was playing), i had to select the stream manually.

    regards,
    Wolfgang

    You can try adding German deu to preferred laguages as workaround.

    Im now preparing a test version for you with a possible solution.

    yes, because even if it works its just workaround for a bug.
    New plugin should solve it.
    Test it an reply with logs please.

    Hi,

    i have tested your version now with same settings as in the first post, it works:D

    But can you tell me why there are three "German" options (screenshot) and what is the difference between "German ger" and "German deu"?

    Regards, Wolfang

    Difference between German ger" and "German deu" is... ger and deu is language codes which are sending by broadcasters to identify stream languages. Which one depends on broadcaster.
    German is only to inform you what that ger and deu means. thats why you better to add both of them to preferred.
    Second German ger is just form bug (im just discovered it)
    To get it add any laguage to preferred, save sattings, open config again and remove lang from prefered. After that you can see it twice in list of languages, but it doesnt affect any functionality.


    And thank you for testing

    I'm a bit confused now.
    When "ger" and "deu" are not the same and i should select both to ensure that it works, why is it a bug if i use only one of them and AC3 switching is only working for one type?

    Ok ill try to explain your situation
    Bug is trigered in case when prefered laguage not found on all audio tracks of channel. In this case Prefer AC3 option was not working
    ORF1 has ger lang streams, PRO7 has deu land streams. Thats why bug was triggered on PRO7
