  • @Erebus You could write a script (or a regular expression in your editor) adding a line with the subtitle language to every caption. Jan 23, 2020 at 12:29
  • I'm newbie on this. How can I do that? Can You give me an example how to create a script/REGEX to add a line with subtiltile language on osd? Thanks in advance
