How to Convert a SUP to a SRT

By Suman Medda

SUP files are subtitle bitmap files, while SRT files are SubRip subtitle files. SUP files are most commonly found on DVDs and Blu-Ray discs. SRT files are most commonly used for computer video files and DVD and Blu-Ray backups. Computer media players such as VideoLan Player natively read SRT files, so a conversion from SUP is necessary. A freeware utility is available to convert from one file type to the other.
