What is a subtitle?

subtitles are derivative text from a transcript or screenplay of the commentary or dialogue in videos like movies, TV shows and Content programs, usually appeared at rock bottom of the screen. Sometimes they will even be displayed at the highest of the screen. basically, there are 3 types of subtitles. They are as follows,

> Soft subtitles

Soft subs or captions are those which are separately formed from a video. They are easy to create and modify using any editing software. Usually marked up with timestamps to be displayed during playback.

> Hard subtitles

Hard subtitles or caption also called as open subs are completely merged with the original video frames. So it is impossible to extract and modify it using any software.

> Pre-rendered subtitles

These subtitles are separate video frames that are overlaid on the first video file while playing. they're often used on DVD and Blue-ray. It supports multiple language subtitles. Therefore, you'll turn the subtitles off or switch among them.

There are so many formates in these subtitles. The youtube only use some of the simple sub formates. they are .srt, .sub, .irc, .cap, .sbv etc.these formates are known as basic formates.they can be freely editable and extracted.there are advanced formates like vtt, .ttml, .dfxp, .smi, .rt etc which can only be modified to change the position of the track or edit the details of the sub.these subtitles are used in small media contents like youtube,Vimeo media etc.but in broadcasting media like television shows, films they use advance sub formats like .scc, .stl, .tds, .cin, .asc etc.These subtitles can only be modified through heavy software and the programme directors.
