File type: Subtitle
The SRT file extension is utilized by the SubRip SubTitle files. The SRT files contain different subtitles ripped using DVD disks. They are usually a part of the process of converting DVD to DivX movies.
The files with the .SRT format can be employed by different video players to overlay subtitles over videos optionally. These files are commonly supported by MPlayer and VLC players. Moreover, a special codec is required to be installed to enable the SRT subtitles in the Windows Media Player, as well as in the applications using the WMP ActiveX control for the purpose of video playback.
