This video tutorial covers how to play SRT subtitles on videos with Microsoft Films and TV app. We recommend installing this Microsoft app as a media player if you need to check and display subtitles and closed captions on a regular basis. It’s really simple to add subtitles to your videos, and you can also buy and stream lots of great online video content too, and view those with additional .srt subtitles too!
The process for displaying the subtitles is pretty simple, as follows:
Play .SRT Subtitles on Videos on Microsoft Films and TV
- If you don’t already have a copy, download the Microsoft Films and TV app onto your computer or Mac.
- Make sure you have a copy of your videos and .srt subtitle saved in a folder together.
- Name the .srt file to match the video, including language description if there are also foreign subtitles, e.g. DE, ES, FR…
- Right click the video file and select ‘Open with Films & TV’
- Click on the captions icon at the bottom of the video screen
- Select ‘Choose subtitle file’
- Locate which .srt subtitle you would like to play on your video
- Watch and enjoy your captioned video!
The Microsoft Films and TV app is free and unlike other media players which require a codec to display SRT subtitles, no additional third party add-ons are required so we’d consider it pretty safe to download.
