Load external subtitles in Films & TV app of Windows 10

Windows Media player which once used to be the default video player in Windows has this shortcoming. It doesn’t allow users to include external subtitles for movies. Hopefully, Film & TV app does and you will know how to do that.

First of all, try to download the subtitle of the movie you want. If the downloaded file is in zip format, then first you need to extract the file. Keep the subtitle file in a convenient location and remember that the file must be in SRT format.

Next, open the video with the Films & TV app. Tap on the Speech bubble button located just adjacent to the volume button. If the subtitle files are encoded, they will appear along with ‘Choose subtitle file’.

Now select the SRT file you downloaded. The subtitles will be synced to the movie that you are watching.
