"I want to attach SRT file to an MKV video. I don't want only to use the SRT file, but to make it part of the video. In this way I can watch the MKV video with subtitles."
Subtitles stem from a transcript or screenplay of the dialog or commentary in movies, TV shows, video games, etc, with file extensions in .srt, .sub, and .sbv. Usually displayed at the bottom of the screen, subtitles help viewers, who have hearing problems or cannot understand the language, to follow the dialog. As a result, you'll need to add subtitles of your preference while appreciating a foreign movie, unless you know the language.
