In this method, you won’t be needing any tool but, a text editor only for example a notepad. This method is a bit lengthy and hence, it is preferred for short videos. But, it is very simple to understand and execute.
Steps To Add Subtitles Without Using Any Tools:
Step 1: Create a folder which contains your target video. Then, copy the name of your target video and create a “New Text Document” with the same name.
Step 2: Then open this text document and go to File >> Save as. Then, add an extension as ‘.srt’ to your file name and select ‘all files’ from the file type option. Finally, choose ‘UTF-8’ from the encoding option and click on save.
Step 3: This is the most important step in this method so please pay attention to it. You will notice a new file is generated. Open this file and start typing in your subtitles but, they need to be in a proper format. For the first sentence, enter 1 and below that, enter the start time for that sentence to be displayed followed by a comma (,) and 570. This 570 must be written otherwise the subtitles won’t work efficiently and then make an arrow (–>) and then type in the ending time followed by a comma (,) and 570 again.
Example: For the first 10 seconds of you want to display a text, it goes like this
00:00:00,570 –> 00:00:10,570
This is the beginning.
For the next 10 seconds,
00:00:10,570 –> 00:00:20,570
This is the end.
In this format, when you are done with typing all the subtitles, save this file.
