#1836 closed patch (fixed)

Myth fails to select DVB subtitles with correct language

If there are more than one subtitle streams available with DVB, myth fails to select the correct one based on the language settings. This can be seen at least in Finland with YLE DVB-T (myth selects swedish subtitles instead of finnish).

This seems to get fixed with attached one-liner (which might not be the most elegant solution but illustrates the point).

(In [10000]) Fixes #1836. One of the subtitle/audio stream selection loops was failing to select the stream in your highest ranked language.

Because of a missing escape, if you had two languages in your preference list and both were present in the video then the lowest priority one (the last found) would be selected, rather than the highest priority one.

Bug discovered and fixed by otto at kolsi dot fi.
