Language support

I've been looking into updating the Kodi musicvideo scraper to using a python version. I got some unexpected results when testing in that some videos returned a different language in 'strDescriptionEN' other than English. My code respects the two letter language codes but it appears from my limited testing that only 'strDescriptionEN' is ever returned for music videos and that it can contain languages other than English.

Example search https://www.theaudiodb.com/api/v1/json/1/searchmvid.php?s=ABBA&t=Take A Chance On Me

So I was wondering if strDescriptionEN is the only supported description field for music videos, in which case I can rip out the language support or if it's an editorial thing and the description is just in the wrong language field?

yep only English supported on track data.

The field is strDescriptionEN

Albums and artists do have translations but I don't think they are used in this scraper....
