( How to add subtitles to a video in mx player )

MX Player is one of the best video player for Android devices. It is free and has lots of amazing features that lets you customize its look, resolution, and more. Wait, I forgot to mention that the one of the most popular feature of MX Player is, it allows you to add subtitles to your videos directly while you are playing the video. Subtitles, they help us to understand the dialogues more deeply.

Imagine that you are in the train and you want to watch a movie that you have in your phone but you don’t have a earphone. This is the right time when the subtitles will work more than ever because Train makes noise and you will not be able to hear anything but you can read the subtitles. Subtitles may help you to watch and understand a movie which is in any foreign language. British accent is bit hard to get but with the help of Subtitles it becomes pretty easy, I guess.

I am a big fan of the shows like Mr. Robot and Sherlock. They both are fantastic shows and I prefer watching them with subtitles enabled because i don’t want to miss any dialogue said by Rami, Christian slater and Benedict Cumberbatch.
