How to put a subtitle to a movie on Macbook Pro?


Hello Allan,

VLC shows subtitles automatically, but if you need to load them manually you can use the following procedure:

  • First you will need to have the VLC media player opened
  • And then you will go to: file/ advanced open file/… in this window (Open Source)
  • At Browse, you will need to select the video file and then below it you will have to tick  the ”Load subtitle file” option.
  • In front of that in Setting /Browse you will need to select the subtitle file,
  • And the under you should mark ”Override parame” for unlock the Delay as well as the FPS section
  • and then after that click OK and in the window,
  • If you click OPEN you should see the movie with subtitle.

To add subtitles on VLC Player, launch the VLC and then go to File>Open File>Open (on the file tab) and then Use subtitle file.


Follow these steps:

1. Go to and then click on the download link to get the latest version of VLC Player. Then double-click the installation file when it is already downloaded to run through the install process. Accept the terms of using VLC and then open it.

2. Locate the file that you want to add subtitles and open it on VLC by dragging the icon directly or by right-clicking while holding the cursor to Open With… You will see a list of your VLC Player as option. Click the VLC Media Player. When you want to open a DVD stream, click on File > Open DVD to launch the Windows Explorer search box. Double click the DVD icon and then highlight the Video TS folder and then select Open.

3. Your movie file will begin automatically, click Pause and then click the Video tab on top of your player. And then go down to the list of options, hold the cursor to Subtitles Track and then select Open File button.

4. Search on your movie file folder and search for the subtitles track icon. It may be on SRT or SUB formats. Click the correct subtitle track and then open it.

5. Click the Play button on VLC to begin the playback with the added subtitles.
