At times you may have source of foreign movie videos, like India Musical film and Japanese anime.

Do you want to attach your preferred language to the movie files, play and watch them with understandable speaking? Here is an easy solution: Add Movie Subtitle by Handbrake.

Use Handbrake to Attach Subtitles Step 1, Search you preferred Subtitles

First of all, you need to find your language subtitle from website. Though there is no 100% guarantees of availability, you still have great chances to get you desired language subtitle after an easy search on Google. Best subtitle file searching method: "movie title" + "your preferred language" + "subtitle" as the search strings.

The raw subtitle file you downloaded is actually text files with time codes. It tells the movie to display a certain text at a specified time. Two of the most common formats for subtitle files are ".srt" and ".sub"

Step 2, Attaching Soft Subtitles to Movie by Handbrake

Using a common media player like Quicktime or VLC to play the movie, you can also display subtitles simply by putting the subtitle file in the same folder. The only requirement is that both the movie and the subtitle files should go under the same name but with different extensions. Something like "title.avi" and "title.srt".

Add Subtitle by Handbrake

Using this approach, you can select the language to display by changing the subtitle file inside the folder. But the method will not be effective if the movie file is edited as the subtitle will appear at the wrong time.

The latest version of Handbrake 0.9.9 - the 64-bit build - comes with a feature named soft subtitles. This ability allows users to add subtitles as a part of the movie with the option to turn the subtitle on and off. Something like DVD movie subtitles.

Step 3, Open Handbrake and choose the source.
