"VLC is the favorite media player for most people because it plays everything they throw at it without hiccups. No hunting for codec. But VLC can do a lot of other things as well. so lets see together which more things vlc mediaplayer can do .

" Add subtitles to the movies or your to your videos

"VLC can play your video with external subtitles that you have downloaded from the web. You can download the subtitles from here :


"In this post we will show you how to play external subtitles with VLC media player. There are two ways to do that.

"Method One:

"Change the name of your subtitle file to match the name of your video file. Lets say if you have a video my_movie.avi then you should rename your subtitle file to my_movie.srt you don't need to change the file extension just the name of file. So if you have subtitles in some other format lets say .ass then your subtitle file name would become my_movie.ass. Now make sure that your video and subtitle files are in the same folder. Then open your video with VLC media player, right click on the video screen go to Subtitles and you will see that your subtitles would already be enabled."
