How to Sync VLC Subtitles


The VideoLan VLC Media Player is a free open-source music and video player available for Windows, Mac and most Linux distributions. It supports most audio and video file formats as well as DVDs and SVCDs. The program will play embedded MKV and OGM subtitles as well as external subtitle files in formats such as SubRIP, SSA and SubViewer. Embedded subtitle files cannot be adjusted or synced to video, but VLC can sync external subtitle files.

  • Open VLC Media Player. Click "File," then "Advanced Open File." Click "Add" and navigate to the video file. Double-click it or highlight the file, and click "Open."

  • Click "Use a Subtitles File" to check the box. Click "Video," "Subtitles Track" and select "Open File." Navigate to the subtitle file for the video and double-click it. Adjust the font size and text alignment. Click "Play."

  • Click "Tools" and click "Track Synchronization." Click the "Up" and "Down" arrows beside "Advance of Subtitles Over Video" to adjust subtitle synchronization. Click the "Up" and "Down" arrows beside "Speed of the Subtitles" to adjust how many frames per second the subtitles are displayed.
