Summary0002085: DOM 2.15.160 cannot open project created in DOM 2.14.x including subtitles if Language field left blank

In DOM 2.14.x is was legitimate to not set language for subtitles (under Content tab -> Timed Text tab).

If one opens a DOM project created in 2.14.x which includes an SRT file, and Language has not been entered, DOM 2.15.160 refuses to open the project with error "Unknown Language string".

Same problem when opening a 2.14.x project in 2.15.160 where content includes a DCP with subtitles track and Language has not been specified.

Can be fixed by:

  1. Editing the metadata.xml file and changing <Language></Language> to <Language>en</Language>.
  2. Removing the <Language> tag entirely from metadata.xml.

Similarly, if Language has been set to something that DOM doesn't recognise e.g. "eng" (instead of "en"), 2.15.160 fails to open project with same error.

It would be better if in these cases, DOM did open the project, but gave a warning "Unrecognised subtitle language, please amend", or left it as is.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Create new DOM project in DOM 2.14.x
  2. Add an SRT file as content
  3. Don't set language for SRT (or set it to something non-standard like "eng")
  4. Save and close
  5. Open same project in DOM 2.145.160

Thanks, that should be fixed by c7916079e06d985121842962b9736a6673e22dfe in v2.15.162.
