Nginx support for HLS

I am going to deploy a streaming server and stream video using HLS and want
to use Nginx. I have a few special requirements that I wanted to understand
whether Nginx supports. 

It would be great if anyone knows whether Nginx could be configured to do
the following over HLS:

- Support multiple audio tracks for the same video so on one hand the
viewer,prior to playing the video, could choose a soundtrack language (i.e.
English, French etc.) and on the other hand I wont need to duplicate the
video for each language. Also, if this is possible - do I need to embed all
audio tracks into the same video file in advance or are they going to be
separate files, combined on the fly?

- Support DRM, so the video can be encrypted on the disk and "certificates"
be generated on the fly to the viewers after they got identified?

Thank you in advance,
