How to Add Subtitle to Videos on Mac

Wondershare UniConverter for Mac allows you to add subtitles to videos on Mac. You can also edit the subtitle with changing font, color, size, width, transparency, position, and others. The subtitles can also be added to DVDs, music videos, TV series, and other digital movies. Hardcodec subtitles can be added easily and convert to internal subtitles for turning on and off when playback. Read the steps list below to learn more.

Note: Hardcodec subtitles are usually .srt, .ass, or .ssa files, which can be adjusted position, font, size, color, transparency, etc. Soft subtitles can be turned on or off when you play the video on TV (only for MP4 and MOV format).
