How to Add Subtitle to a Video on MX Player and VLC Player

Welcome to Filmovity.

This comprehensive guide will teach you how to easily add a subtitle to your video on the major video players out there.

Seriously, it doesn’t have to be that hard to import, enable, and even sync a subtitle in a video.

Let’s break things down.

We’ll start with mobile users.

How to Add Subtitle to MX Player

Step 1: Search and download your film or TV series subtitles from our website or elsewhere, and check if they are in a zip or normal SRT file. If it is in zip format, then you might need to extract it before proceeding to the next step.

Step 2: Move your subtitle file to the folder of your video, and if possible, rename the subtitle file to match the name of your video; that way, it will be automatically added to your video as soon as you start playing it on your video player.

Step 3: Or open your MX Player > Folders > and tap on your video.

Step 4: Tap on the subtitle button located at the top-right side, then the “Open” option, navigate to your subtitle folder, and tap on it to load it.

After you have successfully added your subtitle file to the video, if you notice a synchronization problem, you can use the same subtitle icon to access the synchronization settings of your subtitle and make some adjustments.

As we said earlier, adding a subtitle to your video shouldn’t be a problem. Cheers to you!

How to Add Subtitle to VLC Player

We will simplify things here and manage to wrap things up in no more than three steps.

For Android users:

Step 1: Download your subtitle from our website or elsewhere and extract it if it is in zip format. Then launch your VLC player, locate your video, and start playing it.

Step 2: Tap on the screen to reveal playback controls. Then find a subtitle icon (?) and tap on it.

Step 3: Then tap on “Add Subtitle File,” locate it, and tap on it to load it. If you have multiple subtitle tracks and they’re all imported, then you might need to select the appropriate subtitle track by tapping on “Subtitle Track” and choosing your desired language or version.

Tips ?: If you don’t have a subtitle file, you can use the automatic search feature to look for your video’s subtitle or even use the AI translation feature. However, by adding your subtitle file to the same folder as your video and renaming it to match the video’s name, you won’t have to manually import your subtitle file.

For iOS users:

Step 1: Download your subtitle (SRT) file from our website or elsewhere, and extract it if it is in zip format. Then rename it to match the name of your video and add it to the same directory (folder) as your video.

Step 2: If you have done what you were asked to do in Step 1, then your VLC player should automatically detect and load the associated subtitle file into your video.

Step 3: If it doesn’t work, then tap on the screen, select the “Subtitles” tab, tap on “Add Subtitle File,” locate your subtitle file, and tap on it to load it.

Tips ?: If you noticed a sync issue related to your subtitle, you can adjust the sync in the subtitle settings of your player. And what you should do is look for either the “Subtitle Delay” or “Subtitle Synchronization” options and adjust the sync using them. However, if you have multiple subtitle files added to your video, you can switch between them in the “Subtitles” menu using the “Subtitle Track” option.

For PC users:

Step 1: Download your subtitle from our website or elsewhere and check if it is in zip format or a normal SRT file. If it is in zip format, then you might need to extract it.

Step 2: Open your video player and add your video, or open your video on the VLC player and play it.

Step 3: In the navigation menu, arranged horizontally, click on “Subtitle,” then “Add Subtitle File,” and navigate to your subtitle location and click on it to load it.

Tips?: At times, you don’t need to stress yourself that much; you only need to rename your subtitle file to match your video file and add it in the same folder as your video. It will be automatically added as soon as you play your video.

Conclusion

Most of the steps provided for adding subtitles to a video on MX Player and VLC Player are the same for other players.

If you learned how to manually add a subtitle file to your video using VLC Player, then you can surely apply that same procedure to other players like MKV Player, Pot Player, and others.
