How to Download Subtitles In VLC Media Player In 5 Minutes

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.

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.
