How to merge subtitles with video permanently

The problem is that such software is usually quite complicated and requires considerable experience in editing. Leaving aside the fact that it is either fee-based or contains numerous ads.

Our tool is on the other hand very simple without any unnecessary features and buttons. It allows you to merge SRT with MKV, MP4, MOV, AVI or any other visual in three simple steps. Please note that the tool adds hard subtitles only. Hard subtitles are burned in, or hard coded, as an overlay over your video and cannot be turned off or on later in a player.

Clideo service works online and it is available for all the operating systems and device types: iPhones, smartphones, laptops, tablets etc. You can enjoy its full functionality on a free basis as long as you upload files up to 500 MB. If you want to import larger videos, just subscribe to Clideo Pro.

    Alternatively, call the drop-down menu and select a video from a cloud storage account.

  2. Merge subtitles with MKV or another video

    There are two basic ways to add subtitles to the shooting: write them manually or import a ready file. We need the second option, so hit the button “Upload .SRT” and pick it up from your personal device or online storage using the same options as at the previous step.
