What is SRT file?

File with.SRT extension contains movie subtitles saved in text format. Each subtitles fragment contains the following elements separated by newline characters:

  • Subtitle sequential number,

  • Timestamps start and end time s using the convention GG:MM:SS,Ms --> GG:MM:SS,Ms,

  • Subtitle text to be displayed.

Below the timestamps there may also be included text display coordinates. If such information is not present, subtitles are by default displayed in the bottom- middle part of the screen. SRT files are saved in SubRip format, which allows creating subtitles for DivX and DVD movies, and is supported by most media players. The format offers simple formatting tools in the form of HTML markers, such as <u> or <i> ( tags for underscore and italics, respectively).
