Without a doubt, enjoying a good movie or following the trail of an interesting TV series are activities that many of us do on a regular basis.
Especially in cases where you download an episode of your favorite series or a movie, but you can’t enjoy it because you don’t understand it, especially since you are in languages that you don’t master such as English, French, German, among many others.
That’s why you can search for the subtitled episode but you can’t find it anywhere.
Or in other situations, you probably won’t find the video subtitled, but you will find the corresponding subtitles, because perhaps no one wanted to subtitle the multimedia content.
In this sense, if something similar has ever happened to you or you want to avoid it, here’s a helpful guide on how to subtitle videos with Freemake Video Converter.
On the other hand, there are also people who like to enjoy movies or series in the original language, especially because it represents listening to sound without any alteration, but rather in its maximum splendor.
For this reason, the following process is also very useful and, on many occasions, necessary.
What is Freemake Video Converter?
For those who have not heard of this software, we can say that it is one of the best tools for subtitling and editing videos. Freemake Video Converter is a program that, among other things, allows you to embed subtitles to videos, as well as change their format.
Steps for subtitling videos
The first step will be to download Freemake Video Converter. It’s worth mentioning that the program is completely free, so you won’t need to invest a penny to get your job done. In addition, downloading and installation are relatively quick tasks, and once installed, start the program.
As you can see from the image above, the Freemake Video Converter interface facilitates the use of this program.
To open the video you have to click on the menu option +Video. Then select the video file to which you want to add the subtitles that should be in a separate file. After opening the video you will have a window as shown in the following image:
The next task is to add the subtitles, something as simple as clicking the No Subtitles option, and then Add Subtitles. As mentioned earlier, you will need to have saved a .srt file of the subtitles.
To get them you can search in sites like subdivx, for example. After adding them it is important to make sure that the subtitles are synchronized with the video, and to do this you must click on the icon of the scissors that appears on the right side.
In case they are not synchronized, you will have to look for other subtitles.
With the synchronized subtitles, you can paste the subtitles to the video. To do this, click the Convert button at the top of the window.
Then choose the format of the new video (which can be kept as the original) and the output location of the file. A new window will open showing the progress of the conversion. Depending on the size of the file it can take from 10 minutes to 1 hour.
When the process is finished you will have your video file ready with the subtitles pasted, that is to say that you will not have to do more than play the series or movie without needing to do any more process to enjoy.
It’s worth mentioning that this is a very useful process when you want to burn video to a disc for viewing on TV or using a USB device, as there are TVs that don’t recognize subtitle files or sometimes display them in too limited a size.
