    Using subtitles

    VLC supports many kinds of subtitles.
    Media with included subtitles

    Many types of media can have embedded subtitles. VLC can read subtitles for the following media:

    *

    DVD
    *

    SVCD
    *

    OGM files
    *

    Matroska (MKV) files

    Subtitles are disabled by default. To enable them, go to the Video menu, and to Subtitles track. All available subtitles tracks will be listed. Select one to get the subtitles. Depending on the media, a description (language, for example) might be available for the track.

    Select a subtitles track under Windows or Linux

    Select a subtitles track under MacOS X

    DVD and SVCD subtitles are merely images, so you won't be able to change anything for them. OGM and Matroska subtitles are rendered text, so you will be able to change several options.

    Text rendering options can be changed in the Preferences. In the Modules section, text renderer subsection, open the freetype page. You can then set the font and its size. For the font, you have to select a font file. Under Windows, they can be found in C:\Windows\Fonts. Under MacOS X, they are in /System/Library/Fonts. Size can be set either relatively or as a number of pixels.

    You need to restart your stream for the font modifications to take effect.
    Subtitles files

    While modern file formats like Matroska or OGM can handle subtitles directly, older formats like AVI can't. Therefore, a number of subtitles files formats have been created. You need two files: the video file and the subtitles files that only contains the text of the subtitles and timestamps.

    VLC can handle these types of subtitles files:

    *

    MicroDVD
    *

    SubRIP
    *

    SubViewer
    *

    SSA
    *

    Sami
    *

    Vobsub (this one is quite special: it is not made from text but from images, which means that you can't change the fonts)

    To open a subtitles file, use the Advanced Open dialog box (Menu File, Open file). Select your file by clicking on the Browse button. Then, check the Subtitle options checkbox and click on the Settings button.

    Select a subtitles file under Windows or Linux

    You can then select the subtitles file by clicking the Browse button. You can also set a few options like character encoding, alignment and size. The delay option allows you to delay the subtitles against the video if they are not in sync. If they are not at the same speed, you might also want to adjust the subtitles framerate.
    Note

    For Vobsub subtitles, you need to select the .idx file, not the .sub file

    Encoding, alignment and size won't have any effect for Vobsub subtitles.
