Subtitle language change by itself after reflash Netflix

What is happening?

Subtitles language keep changing back to english by itself.

How can we reproduce the issue?

  1. Watch any Netflix video, right now the subtitle language is setting to english.

  2. Change the subtitle language to chinese

  3. After reload the page or watch another video, the subtitle language changes back to english by itself.

Same problem with German. Each episode or page reload resets the language settings to English. I’ve had to remove the extension from Chrome to avoid manually changing the audio tracks every time a new episode starts. I’d love a solution because the extension had been so helpful for years and I haven’t been able to use it properly for a while because of this.

Hi, the extension was meant to be used in the movie’s original language, other languages often don’t work great still*, so it switches to the original language at the moment by default. But you can turn off “Force original tracks” to override that:

  • we should have some cool updates there soon.

I still have the same problem, even after switching off “force original track” is there anything else I can do?

I have the same problem, it is bug ! Essentially the forced tracks button is not working.
It doesn’t happen on my TV set which doesn’t have the LR plugin, and so it is clearly not an issue with Netflix itself.

Any chance of looking into this? It would be much appreciated.

I’m having exactly the same issue. “Force original tracks” is turned off and every time Netflix reloads the subtitle language is reset to English. This is infuriating. Is there any fix for this?
