The Movies & TV app on Windows 10 allows SRT files to be used for adding subtitles to videos. If you’ve added the file correctly, the “CC” Closed Captioning control will be displayed during video playback, allowing you to turn on and off the subtitles.

To add an SRT file:

  1. Copy the SRT file to the same video library folder as the video you’re trying to watch. For example, if your video is in the Videos folder (located inside the Libraries folder), the SRT file must be located there as well.

  2. Make sure that the SRT name matches the name of the video. For example, if your video is titled “MyVideo123.mkv,” your SRT file must be titled “MyVideo123.srt” in order to work.


If you’re still having problems configuring your SRT files, head to the Movies & TV discussion forum.
