- I am a subtitle freak. I like having subtitles with everything I watch so I never have to worry about the TV volume. Is there any way to burn DVD with subtitles?
Despite consumer shifts to streaming content, DVD and Blu-ray players continue to be owned and used by over 50% of U.S. broadband households. So the demand of making home video DVDs is still standing, and at the same time burning DVD with subtitles is a non-negligible need. Most foreign movies, such as MP4 Bollywood movies, downloaded from online movie sites are short of subtitles in English that absolutely synchronize with the original video and audio, but probably you can find the perfect matches separately on some SRT/ASS/SSA subtitle providing platforms.
For Windows only. If you are a mobile user, please click here.
