Horrible lag on SRT with VLC

Dr. J 25,043 3,353 December 12, 2015 at 06:15 PM
DW is a spanish teacher and so I am always online looking for SRT (subtitle) files for movies. VLC is the friendliest program to work with subtitles but this one has me stumped.

I found a spanish SRT for It's a Wonderful Life. The time text in the SRT file and the video correlate well however VLC constantly plays them with about a 10:20 minute delay.

There is an option in VLC under tools/Track sync to fix this but since it's SO off, if I enter -600 (seconds) VLC just chokes.

Ideas?

I'd prefer to use WMP since she can't install programs @ work but WMP and SRT subtitles just doesn't work for me. I am using VLC portable for the same reason BTW.

You can use something like this:

to fix the sync issues and save a new srt file that's been fixed.

If the need arises, you can always burn-in the subtitles using hand brake
