How to convert vtt to srt file

Converting a VTT (Web Video Text Tracks) file to an SRT (SubRip Subtitle) file involves changing the format of the subtitle file. VTT files are commonly used with HTML5 video on websites, whereas SRT files are widely used in video playback applications.

Here's how you can convert a VTT file to an SRT file on different platforms:

Windows PC

Manual vtt to srt conversion using a text editor

  1. Open the VTT File: Use a text editor like Notepad (Windows), TextEdit (Mac), or any other plain text editor.
  2. Edit the File:
    • Remove the "WEBVTT" header at the top of the file.
    • Look for any metadata (like positioning information) that appears after the timecodes and remove it. VTT files may contain extra data not supported by the SRT format.
  3. Save as SRT: Click File > Save As, change the file extension from .vtt to .srt, and select UTF-8 as the encoding format.

Last, check the synchronization of subtitles with the video after conversion, as there might be slight timing differences between formats.
