Global Variable

AVTrackAssociationTypeAudioFallback

The track contains the same content as another track, but in a more widely supported format.

Declaration

const AVTrackAssociationType AVTrackAssociationTypeAudioFallback;

Discussion

A player that does not support the format of the original track can use the fallback track instead. For example, an asset may contain both stereo and a 5.1-channel audio tracks. In this case, marking the stereo track as the fallback for the 5.1-channel track would ensure that devices not capable of playing 5.1-channel audio can still play an equivalent track.
