Note: You can add subtitles with one language of your choice. 

 

B. Upload your SRT file 

How to create an SRT file : 

  1. You can create an SRT file in any text editor, including Notepad, TextEdit, and Notepad++.
  2. Open a text editor of your choice, and order each line of your subtitles, starting with 1.
  3. Next, put the time the subtitle begins, then "-->", and the time it ends.
  4. Format your timestamp like this -- "hours:minutes:seconds,milliseconds".
  5. Below your start and end timestamp, put your first line of text.

Generally, Wordpad or Notepad is the easiest programs to open SRT files with because you can view them in plain text. 

In order for an SRT file to work in conjunction with the video file, it's paired with, it must follow a specific format consisting of: 

  1. The line number
  2. The time range where the line should appear in the video
  3. The text that should appear on the line

Example

of what goes on our plate
and what stays off.
