SRT text files, used to display the subtitles for video files, are recognized by most media players. You can combine SRT files into one if you have merged a video file that was in two parts, or if you want to combine two SRT files to display different subtitle languages together. Combining SRT files manually is very labor intensive, as you have to adjust the time codes for each line of text that is displayed. However, you can automate the process using free software or online resources.
