I was wondering how emby works with audio. I was thinking of remuxing some files with 6+ channels, to include a 2 channel track, for users who don't have surround sound. Would Emby detect this track and, use it for those users, or would I have to have a separate file just for 2 channel audio, to avoid transcoding?

Currently no, the audio track selection is based on user language settings, but we plan to incorporate efficiency into the decision making process in the future. Thanks.
