Setting a track’s purpose (language code extension)

In addition to the language, the DVD-Video format lets you indicate a track’s purpose using an optional language code extension. DVD players display the language code extension to indicate the track’s content to viewers.

You can set a track’s language code extension even if there is no content in the track. You must set the track’s language code before you can set the language code extension.

To set or change a track’s language code extension:

  • Click the movie’s icon in the Project window.

  • For audio tracks, choose Timeline > Audio Options. For subtitle tracks, choose Timeline > Subtitle Options. The Audio Options or Subtitle Options dialog box appears.

These dialog boxes list the language codes and other options for every audio or subtitle track. (You can set the track’s Language code here if you have not done so already.)

  • Choose an option from the Language Code Extension list.

  • Click the OK button.
