Hi, yes, if the embedded chapters of your files contain titles, then Emby can use these.

I know it's a limitation of mp4 and mkv files, but I wish I could provide a different chapter title based on language.

You can use the MKVToolNix chapter editor to edit chapter names to be whatever you want. The aforementioned database seemed geared towards English,  and many available titles just used the generic 'Chapter 1', 'Chapter 2', etc., but with the editor, you can make them anything you want. Just don't expect it to become 'automatic'. That seems unlikely, just based on the lack of available sources.

 

Edit: It occurs to me that a plug-in that programmatically extracts chapter detail from users' ofttimes sizable movie libraries to populate a common database 'in the cloud' could be an interesting 'feature'. Beyond my capabilities but there is, at least, some demand. Create a community-sourced database.
