I guess no one wants to translate these huge lists. Maybe DCP-o-matic can pull/cache them from DCNC or other websites referencing them? Manual override always needs to be possible, I guess.

Maybe we've just seen a failure to play a DCP because of an incorrectly-specified subtitle language? If so, this becomes much more important.

Meanwhile, ISDCF has moved away from their old, static site about DCNC and uses a modernised database for metadata, language codes, etc.

So, it may be easier now to pull lists from there using standard formats/techniques like JSON, etc.

Of course, there needs to be a way to recover if there is no internet connection. Admittedly - after some years with very frequent changes, updates there do not happen as often now, and are not functionally important.

So I would think that it's enough if Carl pulls lists when he creates a new version. Which happens often enough for the purpose.
