SRT files need toCan someone recommend to me a player for iPhone that will play srt files? I have tried OPlayer, good player, VLC, Buzz player and many others. I can play mkv files fine with these players, but srt files won't play.
BTW, I've decided to write a complete article on this stuff, which will also be of help to you. Stay tuned!SRT files need to
-, with most players, have the same name than that of the main file to be automatically loaded
- be manually loaded via menus like "Load subtitles".
BTW, VLC is not only crappy, it doesn't support SRT loading either.
What video files do you have? You spoke of MKV files. Are they the ones you'd like to see? Then, it's highly possible it also has (an) embedded subtitle stream(s) perfectly watchable with compliant viewers (GoodPlayer, AVPlayer etc.).I am not sure what you mean by separate video file?
an .srt file contains subtitles of the movie.I still don't understand how to watch srt files? So confused.
The .srt is the subtitles. An .mkv container can hold the subtitles but depending on which type of subtitles they are VOBSub, PGS, etc, they don't always work well. The .srt is a file that somebody already converted for you, spell checked, and edited.When I downloaded the file, it gave me the mkv and the srt. I guess I could just delete the srt file? I don't need it.
Will that erase the mkv file as well?
What's the point of srt? Who actually reads all that?!
