How to sync SRT file with video?

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When should I use the SRT Time Shift tool?

    You should use this tool when the subtitles of a movie are out of sync with the movie. This happened when the subtitles were created using a different version of the movie. For example, when the version has a longer intro than the current version.

  • What are the supported time units?

    We currently only support shifting by seconds (s) and milliseconds (ms).

  • How do I determine the offset?

    You should start the offset with either a "+" (adding time to) or "-" (subtracting time from). Then, write your offset in seconds and, if you need to use milliseconds, you add them after the decimal separator "." (dot). For example, to subtract 200 milliseconds, you write "-0.2".

  • My subtitles were fine, but it said, "Your subtitles have a line without start time"?

    If your subtitles were correctly timestamped, it could be that your file was not in the correct file encoding. For our subtitle timeshifter to work, you need to convert your file to UTF-8.

  • Up and running in no time
    The automatic conversion generated a pretty decent baseline, and I liked the ergonomics of the editor that allows you to polish the transcript while listening to the audio in sync.
