What is a soft subtitle and hard subtitle?
In a video file say a .mp4 can contain video and audio as separate tracks. Like that the subtitles also reside as a separate track in text format. This is called Soft Subtitles. These subtitles can be made to show or hide by selecting them in the Apple Device Player. But hard subtitles are burnt over the video as an overlay which becomes the part of a video and cannot be removed.

There are so many video & subtitle formats and widely vary in how there are created, So there is a possibility that something might not work as expected. Please get in touch with me for a quick resolution using the contact form here :

Didn’t work


I couldn’t get this to work. Wondering if it’s a fake. Anyone else have this problem?

Not compatible to ISO-8859-1

Allan Mentzingen

It worked, but it’s not compatible to ISO-8859-1 characters encoding (Latin languages). All subtitles with these characters are not shown. And it would be nice if it were possible to change “Language” in Info before saving the video. Like in HandBrake software.
