Video clips with subtitles

The player installed on the Computer is the VLC, which can read most formats thanks to the native Audio and video codecs.

If you want to add subtitles you can perform two procedures:

  1. Insert the video and subtitles in the same folder and with the same name (e.g. XYZ.avi and XYZ.srt). Opening the movie, the subtitles will synchronize automatically
  2. Open the video with VLC and drag the subtitle file to the program interface. That way they will synchronize automatically

If the subtitles do not sicronize with the video, go to Tools > Synchronization track from the application menu. From the window that opens you will be able to adjust the advance of the audio relative to the video, that of the subtitles, and their speed.
