Film lovers at times get hold of a movie that is streaming in a foreign language. Such films or shows are expected to feature with subtitles in viewers’ native language. You most probably have been caught up in such an annoying situation, you want so much to watch your favorite show but turns out you can’t understand what is streaming without the subtitles. Well, worry no more about it. This issue has a very quick and elaborate fix. All you will need to do is to add subtitles to your show.
Basics to adding subtitles include, an already installed showbox APK. The showbox APK is compatible with various common platforms (pc, iPhone, iPad, iPod, and android just to mention but a few).You can access subtitles through the link opensubtitles.org. However this limits you to only access the subtitles by watching your film therein.
For showbox APK to function on your device it has to go hand in hand with the mx player. Simply get this by searching it on your Google play store. Download MX player and install it to your device.
To add subtitle follow the following steps:
- Foremost, open the show you desire to watch, choose the high dimension 360p/480p/720p.select other player choose mx player for streaming, click on Watch Now.
- Once the show starts playing, click on the menu bar and select theSubtitles option. This option has suggestions like open and get subtitles online. If you are streaming from online select the get subtitles online option, if you had downloaded the show,click on open option.
- Select Search option, a search box will pop up on your screen. Key in the show title correctly. Click on the Done button and then Ok button.
- Choose a legit source of SRT file from the results obtained in the search above. This will enable you to download and load the subtitles to the streaming application, mostly showbox. Click on the download option in no time the subtitle will download automatically to the show you are watching or desire to watch. Simple as the process sounds, it can be a challenge if you don’t follow the instructions to the letter. It is more like a trial and error scenario. Don’t get your hopes super high as you will have to be patient to get it right.
Filebot comes in handy whenever you have a big collection of shows to which you desire to add subtitles. File bot is automated to add and search the missing subtitles in the massive movie library
If you are the movie aficionado who only streams and watches movies without downloading them to the movie library, you still can find a solution. What matters is that. you identify the specific sites that always add subtitles to their shows.
Netflix is also a streaming device that automatically adds English subtitles to its shows. The other streaming devices apart from Netflix and showbox include Amazon and Hulu.
YouTube is the best site for accessing non-English subtitles as these have not been fully covered by Hulu and Amazon. In Netflix only a few shows could have the non-English version subtitles hence you cannot entirely rely on Netflix to fetch non English subtitles for a massive movie library, this is where you tube and Showbox APK comes in handy. In fact I’d say the latest version of Showbox fares marginally better than youtube in quite a few aspects.
Many a times, foreign subtitles display in an improper manner on your screen. This happens when shows are not saved in the UTF-8 format. This can be fixed by: opening the SRT file, then select file in the word or notepad application. In the Dropbox menu select the save as option, don’t change or rename your file name and type only change theUnicode format to UTF-8 on the drop down menu. Finally click Save to be able to keep the alterations made.
Despite the change of Unicode to UTF, some shows won’t show the subtitles, simply check if the show can play back with subtitles in the mx player or Divx player, right click on either of the players and search the subtitles and send the show to the servers of the players. Upload the file when you access the internet and send it to the dedicated servers and they will most certainly fix the issue.
