I use Plex for watching most of my media, and I have issues with it finding the subtitle files, even though they are placed as an .SRT file right in the same folder and the .MP4 file. Plex wants the subtitle file to match the MP4 file name, but have a 2 or 3 digit language code added at the end. Right now, IF plex can find the subtitle file, it always displays as “Unknown (SRT External)”. If I add ENG to the file name as in: filename.eng.srt, then Plex will display the file as an English subtitle, and then automatically select that file, based on my preferences.
I have searched for a way to add the ENG to the end of the subtitle file name systematically via MCEBuddy, but can not find that option. Is that available? In the conversion task settings, under Audio and Video, I have audio language set to only keep the english audio track, but would be nice if the ENG could be added to the subtitle file as well.
It is the same exact issue for audio files, yet doesn’t cause any problems with Plex, like subtitles do. It will display all audio as an “Unknown (AAC Stereo)”. I don’t know of a way to tag the Audio as English, as it seems to get that info from the metadata. Is that information created in MCEBuddy or my recording (TV Mosaic) software?
