August 25, 2020

    The contents that we want to see are not always going to be in our language, nor are they going to incorporate subtitles that we can understand. This is why user groups dedicated to subtitling series or movies and the subtitles they create are so popular. The subtitles are the texts that appear on the bottom edge of an image or a video. We always want to download subtitles from YouTube when it is in different language. Usually, subtitles are in .srt format. The SRT format has become the standard for working with subtitles, as it is supported by most video players. Originally it was the original format of the SubRip program, a Windows utility to extract subtitles from DVDs. A plain text file such as SRT (or TXT) can be opened with the default text editors on any operating system.
