WPTV: Allow submission of more than one caption file by language
|Reported by:||JerrySarcastic||Owned by:||iandunn|
When submitting a subtitle or caption file (TTML) to WordPress.tv, it is only possible to do so for languages where there are no existing captions. If there is a file already attached to the video, that language is greyed out on the upload page.
For example, this vide has a French (FR) subtitle file:
On the subtitle upload page, French is greyed out and not selectable.
This is a problem for anyone looking to submit an edited/updated caption file for that language, as it is impossible to proceed with uploading if a language is not specified.
Current workaround for this is to ping an moderator in #wptv who has admin access to WordPress.tv, to have them manually un-attach the existing caption file: https://make.wordpress.org/tv/handbook/subtitlescaptions/how-to-update-subtitles-on-wordpress-tv/
Instead, it would be good to make it possible to upload a file (which is held for moderation in any event) even if there is one existing for that language.
As an enhancement we could also show an additional comment field if the uploader selects a language for which we have an existing caption file, so the uploader can add any notes for the mods to see.
