Download subtitle files for John Sherman retreat videos
Click here to download subtitle files (.srt).
Most common video players do not support subtitle files, but you can download a free open source video player that will allow you to play our videos with subtitles (in English only).
First, download and install the free player. Make sure you choose the right version for your operating system:
Place the video file (.mp4) and its corresponding subtitles file (.srt) in the same folder.
If necessary, rename each video file and the corresponding subtitle file so that they have exactly the same name, except for the extension. For example:
Launch the VLC player and open a video file.
Subtitles are disabled by default in VLC media player. To enable them, go to the Video menu, and to Subtitles track. The
subtitle track will be listed as Track 1.
Select Track 1 to enable subtitles.
You will notice that the subtitle fonts are thin and not so easy to read. You can customize the subtitles and make the font bigger, thicker, different color, etc.) to improve readability.
Click on Tools and then on Preferences.
In Interface Settings, click on Subtitles & OSD.
Check "Enable On Screen Display (OSD)"
Uncheck "Show media title on video start"
You can change the font type, size and color under Display Settings. In our experience, these settings make the subtitles much easier to read:
Font: Arial Black
Font size: Normal (You can increase the font size by choosing Large or Larger from the dropdown)
Font color: White
You will need to restart the program for the font modifications to take effect.
