Select Subtitles/Audio Before Playback


Recommended Posts

This is a request from my wife, who likes Plex better because you can select the audio track and subtitles before launching the movie. I like MBT better as an all-in-one solution to Plex's more limited capacity, but I have to hand this one to her: that feature really is nice when dealing with a lot of foreign-language content.

Are you switching languages a lot or something? Since you (usually) want to for example have the default audio track for the movie and English as subtitle, Check your user profile page and set it up how you want it.

Living in a dual-language household (English & Dutch), we do switch languages a lot. And the ability to switch language and subtitle language before playing a movie is very convenient. Having it set in stone in the user profile - not so much. So I'd like this feature as well.

sure and i get that :) that's why i asked (not everyone realize there is an user profile) If something like this get's added i do hope that comes as a setting, since everything is changeable on the fly and most ppl probably is ok with setting it up once and will find it very annoying with a popup. (with that said mb is all about choice so hopefully we can have that setting somewhere along the road)

It doesn't have to be a popup - merely selectable on the Details page of the movie. Currently, MBT shows what subtitles are available, but doesn't allow you to choose. Plex allows you to choose.

Yep! Wife speaks Spanish and watches Spanish-language TV.
