What is an SRT File?

An SRT file is also known as a SubRip Subtitle file which is a text file containing time-stamped captions information – meaning the start and end time of the subtitle text to ensure the caption’s audio and video are synced.


The timecode format featured in an SRT file is in the sequence of hours, minutes, seconds, and milliseconds, which appears like this: HH:MM:SS: MIL.

Display coordinates for the subtitle may appear after the end timecode. If there are no display coordinates the subtitle defaults to bottom center of the display.

Cincopa allows you to upload an SRT file to your Cincopa Videos and if you find any text missing in your SRT file then you also have an option to edit the SRT file using Cincopa’s SRT Editor.
