The #1 Subtitle Converter Online

Or maybe your product demo video has a subtitle file in a less-common format, and you need a VTT file maker so they display correctly on more video players. Whether you need a caption converter for your brand’s marketing materials or your personal vlog, Kapwing was designed to make it easy. Make sure your videos are accessible to everyone — all in just a few clicks.

How to convert subtitles online

How to convert subtitles online
  1. Upload file

    Upload a video with subtitles to Kapwing, or just upload a subtitle file. To upload the subtitle file, go to “Subtitles” in the left-hand sidebar of the studio. Click “Upload SRT / VTT” and select the file from your computer. Note: You’ll need to link to or upload to a video in your studio to be able to access the Subtitles feature. But don’t worry, this doesn’t affect your conversion.

  2. Edit subtitles

    Now you’ll see the transcript. If you like, you can edit in several ways, including fixing the time sync and making any corrections. If you uploaded a video, you can also start editing, like changing the font, color, and positioning of your existing captions. You can also use Kapwing’s suite of 100+ editing tools to add all the final touches you need.

  3. Export and share

    To download a new subtitle file, select the download icon at the top right of the subtitle menu. You can download your subtitles as an SRT, VTT, or TXT file. If you edited or created a video to accompany your subtitles, click “Export Project” at the top right of your dashboard. You can then download an MP4 file or share the link to your finished project with your colleagues, friends, and family.

Bob, our kitten, thinking

What is an SRT file?

SRT, short for SubRip Subtitle, is one of the most widely used subtitle file types online.

How do I convert an MP4 file to SRT?

To convert MP4 to SRT, you’ll first need to generate subtitles in an editor like Kapwing, then export them as an SRT file.

You can edit them as you see fit, then convert to SRT online.

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
