How to Add Subtitles to an Flv Video

You can add subtitles to a FLV file in a number of ways. Some prefer to encode the subtitles to the file itself, making it possible to burn the file with the subtitles to DVD. Others like to keep the subtitles separate, and use special players that can display subtitles while keeping them separate from the movie file itself. Both methods are fairly easy, and can be done using free software.

    Locate the directory with the desired FLV file. Make sure the subtitle file in question is in the same folder and has the exact same file name as the FLV file.

  4. 4

    Click "Add File" and select the desired FLV file. Click "OK" to return to the main screen.

    Click "Start." FormatFactory will take the FLV file and the SRT file and combine them, creating an FLV file with the subtitles burnt in.

    Go to the directory with the desired FLV file. Make sure the subtitle file in question is in the same folder and has the exact same file name as the FLV file.

  4. 4

    Go to the "Profile" menu on the right-side and select "Flash Video Movie."

    Scroll down on the options menu on the right-side. The last selection in that menus should say "Subtitle." Click next to that to open a drop-down list. Select the subtitle stream that shares the name with the FLV file.

  6. 6

    Click "Convert" and Any Video Converter will create a new version of the FLV video with the subtitles encoded on it.

    Go to the directory with the desired FLV file. Make sure the subtitle file in question is in the same folder and has the exact same file name as the FLV file.

    Go to "Video" then "Subtitles Track" and select "Track 1." This will not encode the subtitles to the FLV, but it will allow you to view them with the FLV file.
