How do I add the SRT file so video players can turn subtitles on and off?

Hi, I\\\'m sorry to tell you that you can\'t just add subtitle without converting. Almost all of the converters on the market can\'t do that. As for the speed of conversion, Wondershare Video Converter converts 30x faster than all the converters.

Is there any way to just add subtitle to the movie without converting the movie file? My movie file format is .mp4 and I thought by choosing .mp4 as the output would pass the converting process since it\'s the same format, but it did not. It\'s working, though but it would save a lot of time since the converting process takes approximately 30 minutes.

Yeah, ain\'t working. I\'ve tried adding a bunch of subtitles (.srt) and all I see in the previews are boxes and not subtitles. Other than that, I manage to load the DVD Original just fine, I just need it to have subtitles
