Mostly .srt file are used when the movie is an .avi file. It happens that subtitles are not synchronised with the movie. Movie can be divided in two parts. When you cut the .srt file in two parts all times of the second part must be recalculated. When you look a movie on TV through DVD/CD it happens that at the end of a text line in the middle of a word was broken. The reason is that some drivers of DVD/CD players a limited amount of characters is allowed in one text line. Sometimes time was too short to read the title completely. Because I experiments problems above I make a program to solve this. The name of the program is “Verbeteren srt files or Improve srt files” and is Freeware. The program is in Dutch and English. It is a small self explaining program with is easy to learn. And it cans everything that is necessary.
