VLC 22.214.171.124 on macOS Sierra 10.12.5
I have reviewed various questions and answers on this topic, but I'm unable to make my subtitles work.
The situation is the following: I have a DVD of a Hungarian film with French subtitles. I want to put English or Italian subtitles on the film instead.
I can open the film, and I can download subtitle tracks and add them to the film on VLC. The downloaded subtitle tracks display, but at the wrong time.
Opening the .srt file, it appears that:
- there are subtitles in the .srt file which VLC does not display at the indicated time;
- the subtitle display times in the .srt file are not the same as for the DVD version of the film I have.
My attempted solution:
- first load the subtitles track;
- with the film paused, use the Track Synchronisation option on the drop-down Window menu to change the subtitle delay;
This doesn't work. Either the subtitles remain delayed, or the subtitle track doesn't show despite being loaded, even if I change the delay setting. I then have to reload the film from DVD to be able to add the subtitle track again.
Any suggestions ?
