VLC HowTo/Adjust subtitle delay
|This page describes how to adjust subtitle delay.||Other "how to" pages|
During playback you can press g or h to adjust subtitle delay (adjust step is 50 ms).
OS X v2.2.1 keys: "h" (decrease delay, subtitles display after sound) and "j" (increase delay, subtitles display before sound).
If subtitle is ahead of sound, press g
If subtitle is behind sound, press h
You can also set a specific delay. Go to Tools > Track Synchronization and set the delay you want.
When subtitles are late compared to the audio, and only in this case, you can use the advance synchronisation functionality of VLC :
- Step 1 : Detect (“hear and see”) that subtitles are out of sync
- Step 2 : Press Shift H when you hear a sentence that you will be able to easily recognize
- Step 3 : Press Shift J when you read the same sentence in the subtitle
- Step 4 : Press Shift K to correct the sync
