    I need to make subs for short videos (intended for YouTube and/or Facebook) and I can't figure out what app/service to go with. For now, I'm just using the native subtitles option on YouTube but it seems to be a little basic. I'd like to be able to switch between fonts etc.

    Any suggestions? :)

    I use iMovie for subtitles. Quick and easy. Manual process, not a bunch of fun.

    I use Subler for inserting Chapter Markers in videos, but I believe it can do subtitles as well.

    I tried that but I couldn't import simple video formats such as .mp4 or .mkv. So I didn't look further into iMovie for this.

    I'll definitely check that out. Thanks!

    That shouldn't be a problem. Which iMovie are you using?

    Look at SubtitleStudio, there lite app is available in MAS under the name SubtitleEdit, very clean and polished.

    I might be a little thick here but what is MAS? :D

    Importing mp4 files should work fine.
