How to Combine AVI Files With SRT Files

by David Wayne

If you have videos in AVI format and you'd like to watch them with subtitles, use video-converting software to add SRT files to the videos. SRT subtitles are sometimes available as a download or a separate file for an AVI video. Some viewers prefer watching a movie with subtitles over trying to follow a language they don't understand. When you add subtitles to a movie, your audience becomes larger and crosses a language barrier. Most video players let you choose a language and subtitle track for your video.
