  • 06:12 UTC (new) (history) 2024-06-17 Selecting subtitles’ language with mpv and Emacs hacking . . . . mbork As you know quite well if you’re following my blog, I watch Doctor Who regularly. These days, I mostly use mpv for video viewing (unless I watch streamed videos on a certain proprietary platform, which I don’t like, but it seems the only way to watch the newest season). My usual workflow is to buy dvds (which have a great advantage over streaming – I actually, physically own them), rip them to mp4​s and then spend some time watching, translating, screenshotting and doing whatever I want with them. One issue I have is that for most episodes, I have two versions of the srt file with subtitles – an English one and a Polish one, and I’d like to be able to select either of them easily.
