#5406 closed Feature Request (fixed)

Showing only predefined languages in Subtitle Downloader

Currently, subtitle downloader shows subtitles for all languages. Users generally download subtitles for only one or at most two languages. If only predefined languages are shown in the list, then downloading will become more easier as we won't have to sift for required subs from all other languages.
It can be linked to preferred subtitle language in Options>>Playback>>Default Track Preference.

Currently the preferred language are displayed first, do you really think it's necessary to hide the others?

To put it in simple terms, if you only download subtitles for a single language say, english then other languages distract user from required data. There are many times that I have tried to download last sub for english language and double clicked a sub from another language by mistake. I think that user should have an option to see subs only in language he prefers.
TBH, I am quite surprised that this feature request was not made earlier (I tried searching for it to no avail).
This combined with another feature request I made (, will streamline the overall process of subtiltle download and reduce errors.

I think this is already done in pull request #146 which is waiting to be finished and merged.

You are absolutely right, not sure how I missed it. That makes this feature request pointless but I am glad that I can expect this to be implemented soon. This made my day.
