Change Subtitles Size & Font with Freemake Video Converter 4.1

October 13, 2013

Freemake introduces Freemake Subtitles Pack, a set of advanced features for Freemake Video Converter.

The pack enables you to do the following:

- edit subtitles size to fit your screen;

- change subtitles font with a new one;

- embed subtitles in any language with special symbols, Unicode and UTF;

- watch movies with subtitles on any device such as PC, TV, iPhone, iPad, Android, Xbox, PSP.

The first two options let you customize the text to fit your clip. There are four fonts and four sizes available.

To add the subs to your file, follow these instructions:

  • Update the Freemake app;
  • Add your files via drag-n-drop or via File – Video;
  • Then click the captions settings on the clip line;
  • Select your notepad text file from the PC;
  • Click the editor to check if the letters fit correctly your visuals;
  • Select an extension for your film with words;
  • Now transcode the clip for your device.
  • In case you want to watch the visuals on iPhone, go for "to Apple" option and then select your iPhone model. For Android click the «to Android» bubble and click to the drop-down menu to find your device.

Then connect your gadget to a PC and transfer your new multimedia there.

You may also save your new file on a desktop or a disc.

Please note that the pack doesn't look for subtitles on the Web and doesn't let create them. It's up to you to search for a corresponding subtitles file online.  You can find the file in your mother tongue, the same language as the original film or in any other language that you are studying. The special symbols are supported.

If the special symbols displayed incorrectly and you see squares or ?? instead of letters, follow these steps to correct it:

Open your subtitles file in Notepad (a standard Windows program);

  • Click on File;
  • Now click Save as;
  • Then select UTF from the dropdown menu;
  • Resave your text file.

In case you get a message that saving subs as UTF may cause loss of some symbols, save the file with another name. Thus you will get both the original and the new version.

Now run Freemake tool and try to insert the new subs to your clip. Preview the changes before applying them.

If everything is OK, follow the steps above to insert text into your media file.

Please note that the software will produce a file with the text that can't be turned off or on. It will always present on a visual.

One more thing to keep in mind is that if your multimedia comes with words, you should add more phrases there as the tool doesn't remove the old texts. Thus you will get a clip with unreadable symbols.

Freemake Video Converter Subtitles Pack is available within the video converter software:
