Just exported your subtitles and looking for a way to integrate them into your video? It’s actually super easy and can be done using many different converters and video transcoders. Today we’re going to use a simple and free tool called HandBrake. But the process is very similar for other software solutions as well.

P.s - if you’re still looking for a way to create subtitles - try our online transcription tool. You can export your transcript in SRT, VTT, EBU-STL, and other formats. 

We only need 2 things to start with: an SRT file with your subtitles and your video. 

-First, launch HandBrake → Open your video file

.Open your file in HandBrake to caption your videos

-Go to Subtitles tab → Import SRT

Import SRT file to create captions for your videos

-Choose language and offset settings

-Click browse and select the file name and location

-In case you want to have open captions on your video, make sure to tick the checkbox “Burn in”.

-Press “Encode”


P.s - We’ve explained the difference between open and closed captions in one of our posts - be sure to check it out, if you haven’t already! 


You’re done! Now you just have to wait, until HandBrake renders your footage. Hurray, now when you play your video on your electronic devices - you can turn subtitles on and off!
