Subtitles can enhance video for users who are hearing-impaired or watch media produced in a foreign language. In many cases, subtitles are not hard-coded into the video and you may need to download them from a separate source.

Close CyberLink PowerDVD.

Right-click your subtitle file and then click "Copy."

Navigate to the folder where your video file is stored. Right-click in the folder and then click "Paste."

Right-click the subtitle file and click "Rename." Change the name so that it is identical to the name of your video file.

Double-click your video file to load PowerDVD. Click the "Next Subtitle" button or press the "U" key during video playback to enable the subtitles.
