How to Add Subtitles in QuickTime Player MacBook?
Adding subtitles to your movies is a great way to make them accessible for everyone. It can be done with QuickTime Player, a free video player that comes with macOS.
Step 1. Mac users can add subtitles to a movie or video with QuickTime Player:-
- To add subtitles, follow these steps:
- a) Open QuickTime on your computer and click the “File” menu icon in the upper-left corner of your screen (or go here if you don’t see this menu).
- b) Select “Add Subtitle Information.”
- c) Add any metadata that’s available for this movie or video (e.g., director’s name). The more information you provide about what kind of content it is and how it was made, the better!
For example, if there are multiple languages spoken in an episode of The Walking Dead that has been dubbed into English by different actors, you can use this feature so viewers know exactly where they’re supposed to look when reading subtitles during playback time!
Step 2. Open the movie in QuickTime Player and go to Window > Show Movie Properties.
You will see a list of options that can be used for adding subtitles. Click on the Text track button, then click on the + icon in the lower right corner of this dialog box to add your subtitle file. A dialog box will appear for you to add your subtitle file and choose settings for it (if needed).
Step 3. A movie information window will open that allows you to add the subtitle file.
You’ll see a movie information window, which allows you to add the subtitle file. The caption track is turned on by default and has a check next to it. To turn off the caption track, simply uncheck this checkbox in this window:

You can also choose an option for adding subtitles from an existing folder by opening a video file in QuickTime Player and selecting “Add Subtitles From Folder” from its File menu.
Click OK when done adding subtitles to add them to your movie project. If necessary, adjust any settings for this new subtitle track before continuing on with Step 5 below:

You’ll now need to open up Movie Properties (as described above), then select which tracks are available to add subtitles to your movie:
