Quoting DJ Doena:
Quote:
I'd suggest a re-design of the "Audio & Subtitles" section that it looks more like the "Discs" section with a grid and an "add line" button.

Then I'd suggest 3 columns for audio tracks: language, audio format and type

Type would be a choice of: original audio track, dubbed audio track, commentary, descriptive

Then I'd suggest 2 columns for the subtitles: language and type

Type would be a choice of: normal subtitle, subtitle for the hearing impaired, commentary.


I don't think the database schema has to be changed for the above, it's just a redesign of the UI.

Missing choices for audio types: music only, other.
Missing choices for subtitle types: partial, trivia, other.

For the language column there should also be an option "mixed languages" in addition to "other".

I think a system like this has been proposed before. In the short term I would be happy already if the proposed languages would be added to the list. The list of missing languages includes:

Basque
Galician
Catalonian
Valencian
Flemish
Estonian
Latvian
Lithuanian
Serbian
Thai
Swiss German
Rumantsch
Slovak
Pashtu
Bambara
Tibetan
Mongolian
Bahasa (Indonesia)
Slovenian
Vietnamese
Croatian
Latin

Have I missed a language?

Addition to subtitle type: forced, closed caption

I still wish Thai was added as an Audio and Subtitle language

I've asked a few times over the years. I have several Thai films that are set to Other.

In this case for simplicity use the main language, even if it's dual language pick one.

I'd rather choose "other" for mixed language subtitle.

And as you and others have asked for in the past 'mixed' would be even better!

I have eight that are in Thai and three more that have a Thai dub, all R1 disks. Thai audio needs to be added!

I've just added around 40 discs to my local collection for full cataloguing with Afrikaans as the main soundtrack, so I'd be glad if that could be included sooner than later. What is so weird is that I don't think I have a single disc with Afrikaans subtitles!

I have at least 100 titles with Thai language (with about a dozen others on the way for Christmas).  Just adding this option alone would knock out a huge percentage of my Other selections.

Out of a collection of 526 titles (a combination of R1 and R2), I have 31 that have audio or subtitles in "other".

Plus, I was thinking about The Red Violin, which is listed as having an "English" audio channel, but which features as much Chinese, French, Italian and German as English. How should that work?

I think tha we are talking about tracks and subtitles like features of the DVD, the languages in wich i can hear or read the entire film offers in the DVD. Maybe the film includes many languages but i can't selec it to hear or read the film. We can't forget that DVDProfiler is a database program for DVDs, not for movies.

Janus your list is almost complete. The other language to add to this list (at least for me) :

French (Canada/Quebec) : This is not the same that french (France) many expression are different and many French Canadian don't buy title if the dubbing is not done in the Province of Quebec
