How to Remove Embedded Subtitles

By David Ferris

Digital media has proliferated the volume of movies available for viewing and download, including foreign films. Subtitles are a convenient way to understand a film in another language, or to supplement an English language film with easy-to-read text at the bottom. However, not everyone wants or needs subtitles; for some, they may be an annoyance. It is possible to remove embedded subtitles from a video file.

Step 1

Open the folder containing the video file.

Step 2

Locate the file with the SRT extension. These documents contain the subtitled text.

Step 3

Delete the SRT file or move it out of the folder containing the movie file. The subtitles will no longer appear.
