Thank you so much! I was messing around with the script above, but am a bit confused. It is written specifically to delete the SRT and EDL file (I need the SRT file) and my files are formatted in MP4 format rather than MKV. After a little bit of googling I realized that my command line skills are quite minimal. So this is what I came up with for an MP4 file:
CustomCommandParameters="/c mp4box.exe "%convertedfile%" -lang 1=eng -lang 2=eng"
This seems to work on SOME of my files (tested with different file types, as well as testing out changing of the font of the burned in SRT’s at the same time, so now getting 2 different subtitle options showing in Plex with different fonts, although there is only one SRT or none if burned in), but Plex still shows another codec as “unknown” ( * Codec MOV_TEXT * Stream Identifier 3 * Display Title Unknown (MOV_TEXT)), but now both the video and main audio files are showing as English. I am sure that there are better ways to achieve this, and if anyone has suggestions, I would appreciate them.
Also, the other part of my original question was renaming the closed captions SRT file to add the ENG.srt language code for Plex as well. You say that MCEBuddy will automatically do this if there is only one subtitle file, which is all that I am generating - one SRT file. In the original TS file, there are EIA-608, EIA-708, and timed text captions present, which I would LOVE to keep, but the MP4 conversion deletes those and keeps 1 SRT file, which doesn’t have a language code.
I looked through the advanced settings/tweaking guide but only found the SRT referred to as %srtfile% and when I messed with changing the file name in the same post processing script method as above, any changes ended up adding the ENG to the end of the file, as the srt section of the filename appears to be hard coded based on what I saw in the log file: %SRTFILE% = “filename.srt”. Changes only resulted in “filename.srt.eng”. It doesn’t appear that I can change that filename to add a language code in the same way as adding a post processing file above (at least with my limited knowledge). What am I missing here?
For the time being, I have just added .ENG into the filename as a custom file rename in order to get it to work.
Thank you again!
