Open SRT File

SRT file extension is used by SubRip SubTitle files. SRT files contain subtitles that are "ripped" from DVD disks (usually as part of the process to convert DVD to DivX movie). SRT files can then be used by a number of video players to optionally overlay subtitles over the video. Such players as VLC and MPlayer support SRT files natively. There is also a special codec that can be installed. It enables Windows Media Player and other applications that use WMP ActiveX control for video playback to open SRT file and use subtitles information from it.

"Ripping" process consists of 2 steps: Decoding the MPEG video stream that contains subtitles and running optical character recognition algorithms on the decoded images to extract text. If some character fails to be recognized the application will prompt for input. Algorithm that is used for character recognition is a learning one so prompts will become less frequent as you go.

Internally SRT files contain subtitles and associated timestamps in plain text format. You can open SRT file using notepad.exe or any other text editor.
