Blu-ray folder: it doesn't identify the language of the audios and subtitles.

Emby server v4.3.1.0

Arch Linux

 

I have added several blu-ray folders and although Emby identifies them correctly, it does not detect the language of the audios and subtitles.

I don't believe that information is available.  I don't see it on my test Blu-Ray or DVD folders.  Opening the media in Media Info does not show language either.  At least on my test media.

Right, for the best experience possible I would suggest converting to mkv.

Right, for the best experience possible I would suggest converting to mkv.

 

That would be more comfortable for you but not for the users. If you add support for Blu-ray folders you have to do it right.

What prevents you from implementing this improvement (important I would say)?

We use ffprobe which doesn't return this information for a bluray folder. It's possible to look at using other tools in future updates. thanks.
