I don't know where to post this or what it is even called but I have a problem with subtitles showing up in the subtitle dropdown menu in VLC. I want them to show up as English but I get other things like Track 1, etc. I use subtitle edit 3.6.0 but can't find a solution... Thanks for any help, -jmfsms

If using subtitles as separate files (SRT, ASS...), you can get the language displayed by using a standard naming convention :
“Name of the movie.en.srt” => should be displayed as “English” (or local translation)
“Name of the movie.fr.srt” => should be displayed as “French” (or local translation)
And so on. (When I looked into this issue some months ago I couldn't find a thorough list of all country codes, and gave up once I had found the info I needed — if someone could post a link to such a list that would be useful.)
I read that, in case there are multiple subtitles with the same language, a numbered suffix like “.en1” / “.en2” / “.en3” would work, but upon quick testing, it doesn't work with VLC Media Player 3.0.16.
