In case, the subtitle is lagging behind video, you need to provide a negative value to "Advance of subtitles over video" section. Take an example, that Subtitles are behind the Video for a delay of around 5 seconds approximately, you need to do negative or hastened 5.000 s. The speed of subtitles is normally adjusted to the video. Just click on the refresh sign and you are done with it. In case, your subtitles are ahead of the video, you need to enter the positive value of that particular amount of time, which can be called as delayed and then continue the process of refreshing. You are sure to see the noticeable change with your subtitles.
