Best Recommendation for adding subtitles to mp4 files

June 28, 2017

Q1:
"I have several mp4 files with their respective srt subtitle files which I would like to be able to view on my ps3. I have used subler to no avail due to the lack of support with Tx3g subtitle encoding on Sony's Ps3. I would like to stay away from using wine to run an exe file if possible. Edit: I understand that it is possible to stream the mp4 file with subtitles using ps3 media server, but I would like to stay away from this method as my internet connection is weak."


Q2:
"Can you help me with apps that allow you adding subtitles to a mp4 video on Android? I don't mean videoplayers that let you display subs during video playback. What i mean is an app that permanently hardcodes (burns) subtitles into a video either by merging a sub file and a video file into a single video file or by giving you an opportunity to directly choose timings and to type subtitles text "on the fly" all by yourself on your smartphone without involvement of PC."

Best Answer:

Source From: Add Subtitles to an MP4 Video

Solution One: Attach Subtitles to MP4 with Handbrake

Step 1. You need to find your language subtitle from website.

Step 2. Attaching Subtitles to Movie by Handbrake

Using a common media player like Quicktime or VLC to play the movie, you can also display subtitles simply by putting the subtitle file in the same folder. The only requirement is that both the movie and the subtitle files should go under the same name but with different extensions. Something like "title.mp4" and "title.srt".

Step 3. Open Handbrake and choose the source.

Step 4. Open the Subtitles tab and click "Add external SRT" button.



Now you have finished all steps of embedding subtitles to MP4 movies by released Handbrake. After this simple operation, you can play foreign movie videos with home language.

Important Note: In our tests on inserting subtitles to some downloaded movies using Handbrake on Mac, but not having much success. When tired to add an .srt subtitles to an .mp4 file that we have already converted in Handbrake, Handbrake immediately thinks it has already converted the movie and hence does not add subtitles.
