Before Adding Subtitle to Video

VideoProc is not only a simple video format convert. It is also acting like a Windows Caption tool which supports all inner subtitle tracks, and also allows you to add your own subtitle file (.srt) to a MP4/MKV/AVI/M2TS/MPEG/FLV/MOV video. You can also add subtitle text effect to the photo slideshow video created by this video converter.

Before adding subtitle to a video, there are some preparations you may need to do. First, you need to have both the movie or video file and the subtitle file on your computer. You can either download or create an SRT subtitle file. Then remember the locations of both, and then make sure the lines correspond with the time points of the video, namely, where you want each title to appear in your movie. If not, you can adjust it through "Notepad" by yourself. After that, please download the subtitle importing tool – VideoProc.
