The Movie Database Support

Can't add Yakut as a language for a film.

Also on another issue I couldn't add horror as a genre for a TV series a few days ago so had to just use a tag instead.

Hi @klownz,

With regards to the Yakut language, we adhere to the ISO 639-1 set of language codes. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Yakut got it's own language code until the ISO 639-2 system.

Horror is not currently a valid TV genre.

I got the same issue with Tuvalu, also ISO 2.

Why do we not "upgrade" to a more recent ISO set?

Also, how do we set the OML and spoken languages in such cases? "No language"? I just did for this short

Why do we not "upgrade" to a more recent ISO set?

A big reason is that it's a tremendous amount of work. Everything that touches a language would need to be updated. But probably the biggest reason of all is that every single app and customer that uses TMDb would also have to update. Basically it's just an insane amount work.

Ya, that might make the most sense. Unless I hear from someone who feels differently?

Hello hello, I hope you don't mind if I jump on this thread

I'd like to point out the Yoruba language seems to be missing as well. I just came accross this problem while updating some Ola Balogun films.

Lemme know if and when this will be fixed. Thanks :)

Hi @ELDERKID,

Good catch. That's one I can add (it has an ISO 639-1 code) so I just did. You should see it in the language dropdown now.
