Language Flags in Video Info (Attention, filename must be edited and video rescanned into your database, else it won't show up) Example for Cowboys & Aliens would be Cowboys & Aliens.it.avi for Italian Language, .de. for german, .en. for english, .es. for spanish and so on.
Enable it in:
System --> Skin -- > Extended Mod --> Misc. --> Show Audio Language Flag in Video Info -->

Very brillant idea, I love it and it looks cool on info panel!
2 reactions from me:
First, I have just one fear: suppose there is a movie called "Push.it.pull.it.avi", then XBMX would consider it as italian (same for other languages, for example "en" in french means "in", etc).
So it would be in my opinion more appropriate to use markers, like [it], or &it& or whatever you like.
Secondly, I have few subtitled original language movies, but a lot of mutli language HD movies. what to do in such a case. if there are .EN. and .FR. will there be 2 flags?
Assuming than most people will have their movies mostly in their mother speaking language, plus sometimes a second audio channel, or sometimes only other language+subtitle, there would be only 3 main categories
- Mother speaking language only > therefore no need of a special flag because it's obvious
- Mother speaking language only+other language(s) > a unique MULTI language flag
- Original language + subtitle > a unique VOST flag
these only 3 categories would make libraries more easy to manage, what you think?
PS. Would would keep Cowboys & Aliens in their library, it's certainly the worst movie of 2011!
