How to Add Subtitle to Movies and Series on Your Android Device
What You Will Need
- A mobile app to download and add subtitles to your video files, in this case we shall make use of GMT Subtitles, which can be downloaded for free on the Play Store.
- Finally a video player app that can read subtitle files. You can either opt for VLC.
How to Apply Subtitles
Download and install GMT Subtitles
. Open the app and it will search for all the movies and TV series stored on your device and also determine which one of them already have subtitles (the With subtitle
or Without subtitle
label is written below the title of each video):
By default, the application seeks subtitles in English, but you change the default language in Settings
> Subtitles languages
. Then return to the main screen, tap on the series or movie you want to edit and wait for the app to search for corresponding subtitle files. GMT Subtitles allows you to download subtitles files from Podnapisi.net
and other sources.
Once the search is over simply tap on the Download
Return to the main screen of the application and as you will notice the status of the selected video has changed to With subtitle
. Click on the Play
button and then select the video player app you want to use to view the video:
