Add Subtitles to Your Own Video

Want to add subtitles to your own videos?

In this example of how to do it, we'll use a video found online, Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke.
1.  Download a copy of the video; I use Download Helper plugin for Firefox.
2. Copy and paste the text below into a regular text file.  Save it as the same name as your video file, but change the extension from .txt to .ass  (Advanced SubStation - subtitle file). That's it.  Open the video with something like VLC media player.
Note: You can edit the text file to make simple changes, or use something free like Aegisub (better) or Jubler to edit the sub files or create your own from scratch.
