Our free online subtitles utf-8 encoding tool can quickly convert subtitles encoding to UNICODE UTF-8. This is a simple utility that allows you enjoy watching your movies with correct subtitles encoding in any media player program that may not support all subtitles encoding which displays the subtitles as random, unreadable characters.”.
Years ago, there were hundreds of different text encoding in an attempt to support all languages and character sets. Nowadays all these different languages can be encoded in unicode UTF-8, but unfortunately all the subtitles files from years ago still exist, and some stubborn countries still use old text encoding.
Feel Free to check our Subtitles Translator Tool and Subtitles Sync/Shifter Tool.
We Support Subtitles UTF-8 Encoding to These Formats:
1. SubRip (SRT) subtitles file format “perhaps the most basic of all subtitle formats and our first format to support”. SubRip (SubRip Text) subtitles files are named with the extension .srt “or simply SRT subtitles file format”, which is supported by most modern media players.
2. SubStation Alpha (or Sub Station Alpha), abbreviated SSA, is a subtitle file format that allows for more advanced subtitles than the conventional SRT and similar formats. SubStation Alpha (or Sub Station Alpha) subtitles files are named with the extension .ssa “or simply SSA subtitles file format”.
3. Advanced SubStation Alpha (ASS) subtitles file format is a script for more advanced subtitles than SSA. It is able to produce anything from simple texts to manual graphic editing used in karaoke. Advanced SubStation Alpha (ASS) subtitles files are named with the extension .ass “or simply ASS subtitles file format”.
4. WebVTT (Web Video Text Tracks), abbreviated VTT, is a W3C standard for displaying timed text tracks (such as subtitles or captions) in connection with the HTML5 <track> element. WebVTT (VTT) subtitles files are named with the extension .vtt
