Subtitles: Foreign/Forced Label

Recommended Posts

I would like to know what is the proper way to label foreign/forced subtitles? In this example "Avatar" I have two english subtitles (the foreign one is for the foreign-only speaking parts in english and the full english subtitle for the entire movie). There are many movies and tv shows that I have subtitles for that use the foreign/forced subtitles but on the web client they always appear as "Unknown". I have tried embedding the subtitle using mkvmerge and labeling them foreign or forced but they appear as unknown as well.

Web Client: Foreign subtitle does appear properly labeled under details

Web Client: "Foreign" external labeled subtitle appears as Unknown in selection

Latest version of the Windows 8.1 App uses the "foreign" label placed whereas the web client shows "unknown". Can this be supported in the web client as well please?

Through a little experimentation, I can tell you that if you name you SRT file as: [movie file name].forced.[country code].srt  then Media Browser picks up both the language and that fact that this particular file is a forced subtitle.

 

e.g:

"Lord of the Rings The Fellowship of the Ring (2001).forced.en.srt"

 

I check within the MB client, and this worked as hoped.

Yeah I posted this earlier in January of this year and back then it was not the case as shown in my post. The forced/language label and priority selection was added in the past few months during one of the server updates (sometime between May-August). I was aware of the implementation of this request back in August but I forgot to close this post.
