What is a .SRT file?

An SRT file, which stands for SubRip Subtitle File, is a type of file used to store subtitles for video content. These files include both the text of the subtitles and the timing information, which tells the video player when to display each piece of text. The SRT file format is very popular and is supported by many video players and streaming services.

The content of an SRT file is quite simple and is stored in plain text. This means you can open and edit SRT files using any basic text editor, like Notepad on Windows or TextEdit on Mac. However, there are also specialized programs designed to make editing subtitles easier, such as Aegisub or Jubler.

Here’s how the information in an SRT file is typically formatted: - Each subtitle segment starts with a number. - The next line shows the time that the subtitle should appear on the screen, and the time it should disappear. This timing is shown in hours, minutes, seconds, and milliseconds (HH:MM:SS,MIL). - The text of the subtitle follows on the next line. - A blank line indicates the end of the subtitle segment.

For example, in an SRT file, you might see: ``` 1 00:00:03,400 → 00:00:06,177 In this lesson, we're going to be talking about finance. ``` This means that the first subtitle appears at 3.4 seconds into the video and disappears at 6.177 seconds.

Many media players can read SRT files directly. Some of the most common ones include: - VideoLAN VLC media player - MPlayer - Media Player Classic - CyberLink PowerDVD 21 Additionally, online platforms like YouTube allow you to upload SRT files to add subtitles to your videos. There are also mobile apps like olimsoft OPlayer for iOS and J2 Interactive MX Player for Android that support SRT files, allowing you to enjoy subtitled videos on your mobile devices.

Editing or creating SRT files can be done in any text editor, but using specialized software like Aegisub can provide additional tools that make the process easier, such as timing adjustments and text styling.
