Hello!

 

First of all, I'd like to thank you guys for a great work you're doing with Emby server! Thumbs-up! :)

I'm not 100% sure if this section is the right one for my post (it may be considered as a minor bug report as well, imho).

As I'm learning languages, I have in my collection movies with more than one audio track in them (like original track, different variants of dubbing, comments etc) and sometimes its really hard to tell which track to select, because Emby only displays some tech details and language in info field/track selection. And unfortunately it's not enough when you have multi-track files. Some pictures to illustrate this situation:

 

MKV tool shows this:

In Media Player Classic, when you go to audio track selection, track names are shown correctly

But in Emby server only the tech part is actually visible, and the track name seems to be a compilation of codec, profile and language fields and not the actual track name stored in the name tag:

Sometimes it could be really annoying (even enough to force me outta shadows, register on this forum and make this post   :ph34r: ) like in case of the file in example above, which have 8 audio tracks.  The question is: is it possible to make Emby show a liitle bit more info on audio tracks inside mkv containers or make it show content of the name tag as track title?

 

Best regards,

Denis

No, it really doesn't.  All it does is relabel your subtitles incorrectly.

Hi.  This same functionality is available in the Roku app as well.  Where specifically, are you having an issue?

What you are looking for is on the server-side. Library -> Advanced -> Embedded Track Title Display -> Prefer Embedded Titles
