How to remove embedded subtitles

Digital media has proliferated the volume of movies available for viewing and download, including foreign films. Subtitles are a convenient way to understand a film in another language, or to supplement an English language film with easy-to-read text at the bottom. However, not everyone wants or needs subtitles; for some, they may be an annoyance. It is possible to remove embedded subtitles from a video file.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open the folder containing the video file.

  2. 2

    Locate the file with the SRT extension. These documents contain the subtitled text.

  3. 3

    Delete the SRT file or move it out of the folder containing the movie file. The subtitles will no longer appear.
