In this video, I’ll show you how to permanently add subtitles to a video using Movavi Video Converter.

Hi, my name is David, and welcome to this video.

So, I’ve walked through a few subtitling tutorials on this channel and today I want to look at a video converter that you can use to add subtitles to your videos and burn the subtitles to the video.

And that’s Movavi.

And, for starters, this is what the interface looks like.

You can add media, Edit, Settings, etc. And also you can see the different file formats because this is a video converter and you can convert videos from one format to the other, to mp3, and also to formats that are compatible with different devices and mobile phones and all that.

So let’s begin by adding a video file.

And we’re going to add to this particular video file.

Here we go. Just open.

And once we open, it’s going to load up. Here it is.

So it’s this particular video, you can see compress file, 100 Mb, etc.

You’ll notice that it has an option that says low volume, this video has some low volume, and you can actually edit all this.

So let’s click on the Edit button on the right.

And once we click on that, it’s going to pop out a new window.

Now, this new window that pops out, we can first of all begin by clicking on the audio.

And once we click on the audio, what we need to do is we need to normalize the audio. That’s okay, we can just apply that.

So that has boosted the audio.

And then let’s click on subtitles, because we want to add subtitles to this particular video.

Now by default, since the video is in a folder with other subtitles, then Movavi is going to pick out the subtitles automatically.

But let’s just come up to the drop-down here and choose a file and you can also search for file online.

Let’s choose file.

And then let’s say we want to go with this one.

Click on Open, and it’s going to change everything here.

And then we can just scrub this particular timeline, there is our subtitle looks good.

We can just change this particular text color. Let’s give it a yellow, it looks yellow looks good.

If we scrub through the timeline, we’ll see everything has changed.

This is the outline that we are getting this particular black.

So subtitle encoding, you can choose the encoding UTF minus eight, etc, all the way to the different types of encoding.

So I’ll probably actually even test out what other subtitle file do I have?

It’s Russian, Hebrew, there’s no Arabic but either way, let’s just go with UTF-8.

And then you have the option to set the position of this particular subtitles.

If you’re working with content that has a lot of text at the bottom, you may want to select the subtitle to go to the upper edge like that.

And these works for all the subtitles that you’re going to be working with.

Now, I wish there was a way you can actually change for the different sections, it would be really awesome to do that.

So let’s just bring it back to where it’s supposed to be–the default position.

And once you’re satisfied with all these, then all you need to do is just click on Apply.

And then click on Save and Close.

Now the next thing you need to do, you need to set output format, you can select the output format from this particular section.

But if you look at the bottom left of this video, there is the output format, which is an mp4.

And you can just click on these settings or gear icon to customize this particular preset.

If you click on that, you’ll see what we’re getting here– the bitrate is auto–auto.

Frame size original, that’s okay.

Let’s say we don’t want to change anything, you can just cancel that.

And then if you move to the right, you can select Save to if you had a couple of files to merge, you can merge them, etc.

So let’s just click on Save to.

Here we come, it says to save to this particular folder.

So let’s assume we are done.

Just click on convert and let it do the magic.

So it’s converting it’s a short file. So it’s going to blaze through and finish in no time.

So I’d like us to see the end result of this particular Movavi Video Converter.

It’s going to open automatically and the video is going to be highlighted if we just double click on it–

“With the recent…”

Here we go.

The subtitle has been added. it’s permanently burned into the video and if you play it…

“- update on the YouTube interface, it’s now easier than before to download youtube transcripts.”

It’s like we wanted it to be.

The color that we chose for the subtitle, the outline, and also the position that we selected.

So, that is how you can use Movavi Video Converter to add subtitles to a video permanently.

And it’s pretty easy.

You can do some few basic customizations in and out in no time.

That’s how you can do it.
