Introduction

Today we are going to learn how to create a Windows Store App for multi track video using JavaScript. The Metro style app platform allows apps to select the audio tracks with the right language or content. You can playback a video file in the following video tag with four audio tracks. We set "English" as the default Language for this app. You can choose other audio languages dynamically after you click the "Play" button to load the video file..

I assume you can create a simple Windows Store App using JavaScript. For more help visit Simple Windows Store Apps using JavaScript.

To start the creation of the app, add two JavaScript pages by right-clicking on the js folder in the Solution Explorer and select Add > new item > JavaScript Page and then provide an appropriate name. In the same way, add one HTML page to your project.

Now add any image to the images folder and right-click on the folder select Add than select Adding existing item and than select the image. Now create a folder by right-clicking on the name of the project in Solution Explorer then select new and than select a new folder then rename the folder. And add videos same as Images Folder.

        WinJS.Utilities.empty(host);

        eventObject.detail.setPromise(WinJS.UI.Pages.render(url, host, eventObject.detail.state).then(function () {

            WinJS.Application.sessionState.lastUrl = url;

        }));

    });

    WinJS.Namespace.define("App", {

        appTitle: appTitle,

        pages: pages,

        videoOnError: function (error) {

            switch (error.target.error.code) {

        }

    });

    WinJS.Application.addEventListener("activated", activated, false);

    WinJS.Application.start();

})(); 


Write the following code in page.html:
 

<!DOCTYPE html>

                statusDiv.id = "statusMessage";

                element.insertBefore(statusDiv, element.childNodes[0]);

            }

        }

    );

    var currentpageUrl = null;

    WinJS.Navigation.addEventListener("navigating", function (evt) {

        currentpageUrl = evt.detail.location;

    });

    WinJS.log = function (message, tag, type) {

        var statusDiv = document.getElementById("statusMessage");

    function activated(e) {

        WinJS.Utilities.query("#featureLabel")[0].textContent = App.appTitle;
