Default Editing Subtitles

Hello,

Could someone please recommend a few programmes that are safe and trustworthy for editing movie sub titles. Apart from synchronizing the timing, I would also like to be able to convert other formats to srt because that is the only format that works in my media player. Tried Subedit 'on line' application but I was not able to get it working.

Thank you

Try Subtitle Workshop. Go for the portable version. That's what I use.

You can use these software to convert subtitles. Please note that I have not tested these, so you will have to see yourself, if they work.

BatchSubtitlesConverter: https://sites.google.com/site/tsdark...itlesconverter

Easy Subtitle Converter: http://ziin.pl/en/easy_subtitle_converter

Hello,

I got both the Subtitle Workshop and Easy Subtitle Converter in my USB.

Thanks to both of you.

Best regards.

I know a good product for editing subtitles: Subtitle Edit.

If you don't want to install a separate program, PotPlayer has pretty advanced subtitle editor and tweaking facilities built into it.

It also supports the formats: SRT, SSA, SUB, IDX, ASS, SMI, SKM and others

Thank you for this. The 'on line' feature is really great!

Can this be installed in a USB, and used without installing in the computer?

Thank you,

Kind regards,

Yes, it can be run as a portable app.
If you haven't already got 7zip download it from here: http://www.7-zip.org/download.html
Then right click on the Potplayer installer file and choose 7zip > Extract files ...
Browse to your USB and click OK
Right click on the Potplayer GUI > Preferences (or F5 on keyboard) > General > Enable the option Store settings to .ini file

Thank you. I never knew about this method! Can the same method be used for running any program as a portable application? I mean even when the 'portable' version is not offered by the developer.

Kind regards,

Melita, I don't use PotPlayer but see here under "How to extract" on how to make it portable. The procedure is a bit different from what Torres described but it works just as well. And No, you cannot make all programs portable this way.
