With upcoming changes to data protection and privacy laws in Europe coming into effect soon, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone that we do have a privacy policy.

We have made a few changes to the language to make it clearer in relation to this new regulation but fundamentally, the terms and your rights are unchanged.

"all tracks matching selected languages" not picking up director's commentary

Post by mortya » Mon Jan 02, 2017 7:52 am

I have audio defaults configured with various languages, including English. Selection behavior is "all tracks matching selected languages". It's working in the case of multiple regular English tracks, but isn't picking up director's commentary in English unless I add it manually.

I'm pretty sure this feature worked in a recent build, but then stopped working after I did an upgrade. I tried upgrading to the most recent 1.0.1 via apt-get, but no joy.

The version I'm running: handbrake 1.0.1. dpkg version 1.0.1-zhb-1ppa1~xenial1. Installed from the stebbins ppa. The Linux distro is Ubuntu 16.04.

The program didn't throw any exceptions. It just didn't add the director's commentary.

Thanks for all the work you folks do on handbrake! I really love the "audio defaults" and "subtitle defaults" automations. The recent addition of "delete all" in the queue is something I've wanted for a long time.
