Auto Select 5.1 Audio Channel

Hi Guys

Long time Samsung user here but one thing that has always bugged me is a lot of my media has 2 audio tracks. A 2 channel which is considered the default or primary track and a 5.1 track. I would like to set up my samsung player to prefer 5.1 if available on the file instead of me selecting it for each piece of media. are there any options or hacks to make this happen.

    Auto selecting tracks is only possible when they are in a given language.
    You could of course make sure that you set the track you want as default to be the first one while encoding the video.

    Have you checked if your answer might be in the User Manual?
