[Windows] Add subtitles to movies or videos in two easy steps with Free Movie Subtitler

Free Movie SubtitlerI love watching movies. Whether it is at home or on the go, I simply love movies. That being said, I don’t always watch English speaking movies. Sometimes, you can’t find a version of the movie with the subtitles already added into it. That’s where Free Movie Subtitler comes in. If you have the movie and the subtitles, this program will put them together for you.


Main Functionality

Free Movie Subtitler is a program that will help you add textual versions of a film’s dialog to the video itself. In other words, it lets you add subtitles to movies of videos. This allows you to read what is being said. This is perfect for people who like to watch foreign movies or for the hearing impaired. This program will help you add subtitles to any movie in just two easy steps.


  • Add textual versions of dialog (subtitles) to any movie or video in just two steps
  • Subtitles become permanently embedded into the video, meaning you no longer need subtitle files like .sst, .txt. Stl, .sub or .srt to see the subtitles when playing a movie with your video or DVD player


  • Have to have both the movie file and the subtitle file to embed together (i.e. won’t create the subtitles for you — you must have existing subtitles)


Free Movie Subtitler ScreenshotFree Movie Subtitler is a great program with just one main goal, to add subtitles to your movies. That is all it does, but it does it well. If you are looking for a program to “make” subtitles for you, then this program will not be of any use. However, if you have the subtitle file and the movie file, this program can help you permanently add them together.

Using Free Movie Subtitler is about as easy as possible. All you do is open the program and choose the directory of your movie and subtitle. After that, click “add subtitles”, and you are done. The program will take care of the rest. Now, simply burn the new movie file onto a disc to watch on your DVD player or upload it to a device that plays movie files. You don’t have to turn subtitles on or move the subtitle file to your device, because they are already built into the movie.

The device is great for people who may have hearing problems or like to watch foreign movies but they cannot understand the language. Usually finding subtitles for movies is pretty easy, but finding a program that can add these files directly to your movie is a bit more difficult.


There is not much more to say about Free Movie Subtitler. The process of adding subtitles onto a movie is simple, and the program is very straightforward. Although this program won’t help you create your own subtitles, it will help you add just about any kind of subtitle file onto a movie. I recommend this program for anyone who wants to watch a lot of movies with subtitles on.

    Easy movies is the one of the worst site I ever found, for Online Ticket Booking. When one has to take membership they deduct amount for that apart even if you are to book ticket they would charge for that twice without any confirmation. Yes, it happened to me. I was booking 2 tickets from easymovies site on 25th Jan 2013 and they deducted the amount twice from my account. And when I called at customer care no. there is no one to solve my issue. I want my money get refunded by hook or by crook. I had even filed my complaint here, http://www.consumercourt.in/cinema/2235-easy-movies-bad-service.html at consumer court site and waiting for their response. I am sharing my experience with you guys, so that you could be aware of this problem which I faced.

    @Janet: well, so Ashraf wants to say that the sub will be hardcoded so that it is not removable; oh well, then i would say the program is crappy since softcoding sub is what is desirable since you can turn on/off it.

  • Ashraf

    @Janet: From what I understand, no and no.

    This program does nothing but merge subtitles with videos. It doesn’t do any syncing or the like. If the subtitles you are adding are not already synced, then this program won’t do that for you.

    You won’t be able to remove subtitles because they are merged into the videos (from what I understand). So keep a backup of your video if you want it without subtitles later on.

    I use the GOM player–on it you can advance/retard the out of syc subs using the control panel–> subtitle.
    But this has never been an issue when my sub matched the vid to start with.

  • Janet

    “It” referred to Free Movie Subtitler…:-)…The question was whether the embedded subs match up with the picture, as I have had subtitles that are either ahead of or behind the dialogue of the movie.

  • Try Sublight…

    @Janet: ??–Not sure what you’re asking,(what is “it”?) but maybe this answers your question:
    You can drag and drop the sub file at any point in the movie and it will synch up automatically IF you are using the proper sub file coded for the vid that you’re watching. If you pick the wrong sub file usually nothing will happen at all.

    There’s usually an option on the player to turn the subs on/off.

  • Janet

    Does it automatically synch properly?

    Can you remove the subtitles later if desired?

    @mukhi and Jeanjean: Thanks for the tips :)

  • etim

    I agree.
    Why bother with yet another app to clutter and potentially bug up your rig when all you have to do is drag and drop the sub file onto the screen after the movie starts?

    @riya: there are whole bunch of good websites that i visit for eng subs:

    i normally download the subtitle file, put in the movie folder keeping the mov and the sub file names the same, and most good media players recognize the sub file automatically (you can turn on/off as you wish).

    i will possibly never need this kind of program.

  • riya

    Can you recommend any good program to find subtitles? I really need one right now.
