We want to embed subtitles in the very image of a video because our television or our video player (Blu-Ray player, DivX player) is not able to read external subtitles. This can indeed be problematic when you cannot connect a computer to your television for certain technical reasons, for example the HDMI and VGA ports no longer work, or the cables are too short (in this specific case you can use the box Google Chromecast multimedia or the Amazon Fire TV Stick remote), and then we have to go through playing a video file on a USB stick. Unfortunately many televisions are not able to play subtitles if they are not at least included in the video.
One way to have the subtitles no matter what is to embed them directly in the image of the video file.
This is quite simple, just follow the following steps:
- click on source,
- open a simple video file,
- in the subtitles section:
- select "burn-in" (or overlay),
- we click on start,
It takes about 40 minutes for a 45 minute 1080p video if you keep the mp4 format. The delay is shortened to about 25 minutes if you choose a smaller size (for example 720p). Of course it also depends on the power of your computer.
