Regardless of whether you are trying to watch a movie in a foreign language that you do not speak or perhaps, you do not understand what they are saying due to a strange accent, one thing is for sure, namely that subtitles can surely come in handy.
Subtitle To Video Converter is a small utility designed to help you add subtitles to movies or other videos you want to watch so you can make the most out of the experience.
The setup is quick, uneventful and does not require too much attention from your part. Upon launch, you come face to face with a small window that prompts you to add the original video file as well as the output file's location.
It would have been nice if the tool included a player that enables you to preview the movie or clip before processing it. This is especially useful for the times when you need to process multiple videos that have very similar names and you want to ensure you do not make any mistakes.
The tool enables you to specify the desired encoding bitrate as well as the output format, which can be WMV, AVI, MKV and AVI. Unfortunately, the encoding is preset and you do not have the possibility to edit it further so that it matches the video and audio correctly.
It is worth mentioning that it is recommended you install the Combined Community Codec Pack if you want to convert both the subtitles and the video files. At the same time, it is advisable that you update the WMV encoder if you are running an older version of Windows.
While the program enables you to add subtitles to movies and videos, it still needs a lot of improvement. Not only would a player come in handy while processing, but a set of more refined tools for including the subtitles could help ensure that the captions are synchronized.
