How Do I Merge SRT with MP4 Online?

Use Subly to merge SRT with MP4 online. If you already have an SRT file, you can add this to a video (.MOV or MP4) that you have uploaded to Subly.  Once uploaded you can edit if needed, or just use it as it is.  Just look for the tool icon in the editor screen to find the option to upload your own SRT file.
Once you download your video, it will have your SRT file burned into it unless you choose a different download option. Learn more about Subly's caption generator.

How do you change the timestamp on a video?

You can change the timestamps in the subtitle editor or on the video timeline. Easily add, edit or delete timestamps too whilst keeping them in sync.

What video and audio files does Subly support?

We currently support .mp4 or .mov for video and any audio files. You can even upload your audio file, add an image to it and turn it into a powerful .mp4 file with subtitles. If your file format doesn’t match, you can use a free 3rd party converter. Learn more about converting audio to video.

How accurate is automatic transcription with Subly?

Transcription accuracy depends on many factors. Our transcription is supported by Artificial intelligence (AI). Although AI technology has made huge advances in recent years, it is not optimal in every situation. The greatest factor of accuracy is the quality of the recording. If your audio has a lot of background noise the accuracy is likely to suffer. If there is little background noise, you use a professional mic for clear audio and one person speaks at a time, your transcription will be much more accurate.
