Subtitles help a lot of people to watch movies or videos in foreign language. Many people practice a new language by watching videos with subtitles. Using subtitles with a video file stored on your hard disk or removable disk is not a big issue. In fact you can even watch movies with subtitles on your TV, but watching online streaming videos with subtitles can be tricky, or is it?
You Tube has tons of videos in almost all the possible languages. Growing demand for subtitles led Google to implement the automatic subtitle generator in You Tube videos but these are of very poor quality. In this tutorial, I’ll show how can you watch movies and videos from sites like You Tube, Vimeo, Daily Motion or any such streaming video site:
How to watch online streaming videos with subtitles:
To watch an online video with subtitle, you’ll need two things:
- VLC Media Player
- Appropriate subtitle for the video
This tutorial was performed on Ubuntu 13.04 but the steps should be valid for any operating system that can run VLC player.
Go to the streaming video and copy its URL.
Start VLC media player. If you don’t have it installed, download it from here. VLC media player is one of the must have software for any operating system. Once you have started VLC, go to Media tab and choose Open Network Stream from the options:
In the windows opened by Open Network Stream, paste the URL of streaming video, and click on play to start playing the video.
Once it starts playing the video, you can add the subtitles to it in the regular manner. Which means you can download the subtitles from a website like subscene.com and then add it in VLC player by right clicking and choosing Subtitles and then Open File. For more details follow this article on how to add subtitles in VLC player.
Try to view videos which does not have many parts. Subtitles for those will be available easily. One of the many benefits of watching the streaming video in VLC is that you can choose the aspect ratio to suite your computer screen. Also, you can sync subtitles easily in VLC.
I hope that this tutorial would have helped you. Questions, suggestions and feedback are always welcomed. Cheers
