I understand how heartbreaking it is to realise the movie/video you downloaded has no subtitles on it , even after clicking on menu and on subtitles, yet its not showing.
Especially, when it’s a language you don’t understand, or perhaps, you’re a subtitle fan like me. Yack*
So today, I’ll make sure to guide you through the steps on how to enable/activate/download subtitles on VLC media player without hiccups.
To get started, you should make sure you’re watching the movie on the VLC Media Player.
Download Subtitles In VLC Media Player
Play the movie through VLC Media Player, and when the movie is still playing, please make sure your internet is on.
However, while the movie is still playing and you’ve checked to see if you can enable subtitles in VLC media player through the menu and it didn’t work.
Here are some accurate steps to follow :
Step 1 : Click on the “View” option at the top of the menu and locate the VLC Subtitles or VLCSub.
Step 2 : When you click on the VLC Subtitles or VLCSub, the below image will come up, all you have to do is click on the Search by name as seen below.
Make sure your internet is connected.
Step 3 : Within 5 seconds after clicking the “Search by name“, you will see some subtitles download in the empty box as seen below.
Step 4 : All you have to do is select the one you want, but should have ENG on it, anyone you want at all. In case, you want a language other than English, you could change it from the subtitle language from the 2nd step.
As seen below, I selected one from the list, and clicked on “Download Selection“. You should do same.
Step 5 : After downloading the subtitles, you will see a success message which reads “Subtitles Loaded“.
Step 6 : Just after that, close the tab, and you will notice the subtitles has been enabled and you’re ready to watch a fun-filled movie.
It was so easy, isn’t it? Absolutely!
This is exactly how you can activate subtitles on VLC media Player in seconds.
