This is a feature request.

Reason: Multiple language subtitles. Without manually adding the language codes through the file manager every time after downloading a new subtitle.

Current State: The app downloads the subtitle and renames it to `MovieName.srt` replacing existing one.

Changes: After downloading, rename the file to `MovieName.lang.srt` (lang: en for English, fr for French, es for Spanish, etc...)

This is not a bad idea, but most of the time you have 1 language file and its ok to have the same name as file. Any additional language after that you are right, should be _en _fr etc.

The problem is if you have one subtitle with the same name (without the language code) then MX Player will stop detecting any other subtitle files (with the language code).

Plus when you have only one subtitle with the language code then it would still show up (as the language name) anyway.

I believe it's easy to implement this.
