It has been a little over 2 years since I ever did any subtitle (used to be part of a anime subbing group, but due to lack of time, I quit ). So what I know might be somewhat outdated by now. Sorry! Maybe another member can answer it better.


But Aegisub is (arguably) the easiest tool to get the job done for beginners; it should comes with AviSynth in its full package.

For this job, you want to use the audio timing feature of Aegisub. It is a lot easier than trying to sync your subs by looking at video frames.

Note #1: You might need to convert your video another container or codec.
Note #2: If you are planning to implement fancy effects to your sub, you might want to convert your SRT file to SSA or ASS.



By the way, just out of curiosity, are you planning to redistribute the subbed video? Be careful republishing your video and subtitle. Redistributing a video without permission from the author or publisher is already illegal; if you also steal subtitles from other groups, you would get a lot of hates.

Na I'm not resubmitting anything. I downloaded a video and the audio is in thaiwanese (fail spelling) and the download had the english subtitles in srt format. I just wanted to code them into the video so I could watch it and actually know what's going on

That's softsub. You do not need to hardsub it in order to see it; you only need to activate the subtitle.

What is your current media player? In some media players, the option to "turn subtitle on" should be around somewhere. Look for it.

I was using real player. I was looking for the option but I couldn't find it. And the srt file was seperate from the mp4 video file, so would it still just be a switch on option?

Sorry for late reply, I just barely got home.

Yes, and actually, they are supposed to be separate files. Hence the name: soft sub (as opposed to hard sub, which would be in the same file). As long as the video file and the sub file have the same name AND in the same folder, you should be able to just simply switch subtitle on.

For example:
This will NOT work (because the file names are different)

Awesome_Movie_aaaa.mp4
Stupid_Movie_zzzz.srt


This WILL work (notice the names are the same)

Awesome_Movie_aaaa.mp4
Awesome_Movie_aaaa.srt

Try VLC Player (one of the most popular open source media players as of now) or CCCP (which is a codec pack that designed to play pretty much anything, you have the option of choosing either Media Player Classic or Zoom Player as your player during installation).

Either of them should be able to play the video and let you choose the subtitle.
