Subtitles are a simple yet important feature for any form of video content. If you want to know how to edit your subtitles, this article is for you.

You have a SubRip Subtitle file, SRT for short, and you wish to make changes to it because you made a few errors while you were creating it or you've downloaded it from somewhere and it has some mistakes you wish to correct.

So in this article, we'll be showing you in detail the steps to editing your subtitles:

  1. Open Veed's subtitle editor.
  2. Upload your SRT file
  3. Edit your subtitles
  4. Download the new subtitles

In this article, we'll be using an online subtitle editor, but you can also create SRT files and edit using a text editor on your desktop.

1. Open Veed's subtitle editor

The tool we'll be using is Veed. Veed had an online subtitle editor which allows you to make changes to any SRT file's subtitles. So head over to to start making changes to your subtitles.

To access the subtitle editor, click on subtitles in the left toolbar.

2. Upload your SRT file

Once you've click on subtitles in the left toolbar, you will have the option to upload your SRT. Click on the Upload Subtitle File button and then select the SRT file on your computer you wish to make changes to.

3. Edit your subtitles

Your subtitles will only take a second to upload to the editor. Once they have, you'll be able to make changes to your subtitles' text, layout, and timecode.

Just click on the subtitle section and edit the text just like you would anywhere else on your computer. You can also make that particular section have a longer or shorter timeframe, or completely remove it by moving it's text to another section.

You can also use Veed to create an SRT file from scratch or auto-subtitle one of your videos.

4. Download your subtitles

After your subtitles have been edited, you can choose to download them as a .srt file or you can choose to save them as a .txt file. If you want to upload them to social media, I would recommend downloading directly as a .srt file.

To download just click on Options at the top of the subtitles editor and choose which download option you want.

You can also save your subtitles into the actual video, this baked-in technique allows you to add subtitles to any video you want without having software to read a SubRip Subtitle file at the same time.

How to Edit Subtitles

That is how you can easily edit your subtitles using Veed. If you were looking for a different approach, you can also edit your SRT on desktop using a text editor.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out. Thanks for reading.
