How to Add an SRT File to a Video

Posted on: Sep. 14, 2021

Loving the new season of your favorite Spanish show? Or the advertisement for an Italian brand? You might be bilingual, but would there have been the case that the subtitle is foreign to you? Even for videos that are in your language, subtitles play a huge helping part in helping provide visual aid along with the auditory voices. Doubtlessly, it is often crucial that subtitles are added to videos you want to enjoy.

An SRT file, which is short for SubRip Subtitle file, is elemental in the addition of subtitles in a video. The SRT file contains all the critical data, and program-related information, such as the time codes of the subtitles, when the subtitles appear, the format with which they appear, and the sequential numbers. SRT files can either be downloaded, and applied, or edited, or can be created from scratch based on the skills of the operator.

The SRT files are supported by almost all platforms where videos are uploaded or found, either be it the video hub YouTube, the social media giant Facebook, or the relatively new social media sensation, Tiktok. What makes the use of SRT files ever more beneficial is the fact that one single SRT file for a video can be used across these different platforms and even in downloaded versions.

Step 3
Play your video, and it will have captions.
