Subtitles

Top  Previous  Next

This is an another way to view subtitles within our program. The feature allows you to view subtitles text associated with media files.

The Subtitles window is docked on the left side of the man window along with File Browser and Pictures windows.

You can close or show this window by checking a check mark located at Ribbon bar under Tools menu in Browsers & Viewers group

 

 

You can have subtitles text shown in the following ways:
 

From MP3 file


Only MP3 files have special ID3 Tag v2 and ability to keep Subtitles or Pictures inside the file.

When you start to play MP3 file then subtitles text from a MP3 file tag will be shown.

 
How to write subtitles text into a MP3 file:

Use our File Audio Processor software, which you may download here.

 

From a text file associated with media file


When you start to play MP3 file then first subtitles text from a MP3 file tag will be shown

If subtitles text is not detected within an mp3 file then the program will trying to show text from txt file associated to media file.

For other media files you my need to associate text files.

 

How to associate external subtitles text to all types of media files:

Create subtitles text with the same name as the media file has but with extension .txt

You may use Create Subtitles Files command from Tools menu to easy the task.

 

Now you can choose where you want to keep your subtitles text files.

1. You can choose one folder to store them all in one place. Go to options and set a folder location.

For example:

If you have set the Custom Subtitles folder like: c:\My Subtitles Folder then

When you start play file "c:\My song.mpg" then program will look into

"c:\My Subtitles Folder\ for file named "My song.txt"

If a file is found then the file will be loaded into a Subtitles window as subtitles text

 

2. If you choose not to create one general folder for subtitles then you have to create separate folders named "Subtitles" whenever your media files are.

Probably this could be the most useful option.

For example:

When you start play file "c:\Band\My song.mpg" then program will look into

"c:\Band\Subtitles\ for file "My song.txt"

If a file is found then the file will be loaded into a Subtitles window as subtitles text

 

While the text file is loaded into a Subtitles window you can edit the text and use the Save Subtitles to update the text on disk.

Save Subtitles command is located at Ribbon bar under Tools menu in File Manager group, in Command menu.

 

From media library database


 
To use this option you must have installed and configured your media library files collection using our another software Home Multimedia Library
When this option is checked and you start a playback then Sprintbit Media Player can show subtitles and artist picture from Home Multimedia Library databases.
Only one rule must be followed here, the file name of audio or video file you are playing must be the same as is in the Home Multimedia Library media database.

This method of showing subtitles text supersedes the methods described above, to use it please check the check mark "Integrate with Home Multimedia Library" in software General Options

However if this method fails then Sprintbit Media Player will try to use any of methods described above to get the subtitles text
