Subtitles are one of the necessary conditions for us to watch videos or movies, because they can help us better understand the content of videos, especially when we cannot understand the original language of the video sounds or can only watch videos in silent mode. However, when we download videos from youtube, the videos and subtitle files are usually separated, so we need to manually merge subtitles with videos. If you don’t know how to do it, here’s a detailed tutorial to share with you.
First of all, you need to download video and subtitle files from YouTube or other websites. Here, we recommend you to use Jihosoft 4K Video Downloader, this is a versatile YouTube video downloader that integrates download, conversion, merge, and many other functions in One. Using it, you can not only download YouTube videos and full-length movies, but also download their subtitles together and save them as SRT and VTT files. In addition, it has a built-in conversion function that allows you to merge subtitles (.srt) with video (.mp4) in the form of “Burn-in” or “Softcode”, which is very convenient. The following are the simple steps to use it:
Step 1. Download and install the 4K Video Downloader on your PC or Mac, then copy-paste the video URL into the program and select “Download subtitles” in the pop-up window after the link is parsed. Next, tap the “Download” button and wait for the download process is completed.
Step 2. Click the conversion icon next to the video on the “Finished” page, and you will be taken to the conversion interface. To merge subtitles with video, you only need to click the “Add Subtitle” button below the video to add the SRT file corresponding to the video, then select ” Burn-in “or ” Softcode “, and finally click on the “Convert” button to wait for completion.
Note: If you choose the “Burn-in” format, the video and subtitles will be merged into a whole, which is permanent and indivisible. If you choose the “Softcode” format, the subtitles will only be displayed if you turn on “Sub Track” when playing videos via the player.
Step 3. Open the folder and find the .mp4 file then double-click to play it. At this point, you will see the subtitles have been merged into the video. If you selected the “Softcode” mode before, you only need to pause the playback first, then right-click the video, select “Subtitle“, and enable “Sub Track“, then the subtitles will be displayed.
