k-meleon and subtitles on youtube

Hello everyone!. In K-MeleonPortable_76.4.7-2023-04-01.paf when I'm watching a YouTube video, I touch playback settings, in subtitles it only gives me two options: either disabled or the subtitle in the original language of the video. The option of automatic translation to other languages does not appear. I would like subtitles to appear in Spanish, the language I know best. Thank you for your attention

Likely Unsupported

As K-Meleon is based on a much older version of Firefox, it's likely YouTube doesn't support the feature you are looking for on K-Meleon.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

k-meleon update

Do you know of a way to get around the problem? It was the only thing I found incomplete in k-meleon.Maybe a future update of k-meleon?

Unlikely

It's unlikely. K-Meleon is based on an old and now-unsupported version of Firefox with security fixes back-ported to it. YouTube likely only has some newer features like the multilingual subtitles working on currently-supported browsers. If this is the case as I assume, it would likely never be supported by YouTube as it isn't worth the time to implement and support it for a very small percentage of users.
