Whenever we download a movie from the internet, along with the video file (.avi or other formats) a subtitles files (.srt) file is also downloaded. This .srt file is the subtitles file which can be in the English or any other language and is there to play along with the video file. But most of us do not know what to do with that .srt file i.e. how to play the subtitles along with the video file.

Here’s how it can be played in the VLC player, which is one of the common player.

1. Open the VLC player and then go to File–>Open File…

2. A Open File window opens up. In that window, use the Browse button to choose the video file (.avi,etc)

3. Below that there is a check box “Use a subtitles file”, check that and use the Browse button to select the Subtitles file (.srt) to play along with the video.

4. Click on ok and enjoy the movie along with the subtitles.

Here is a screenshot for VLC options to play for your ease 🙂
