Subrip is a program that allows the users to extract and modify the subtitles from movies, encode them and place it back into the movie. The program uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technique on the DVD subtitles to perform this. It supports limited formatting options like bold, italic, Underline, font colors etc. that depends on the player.
This SubRip Program uses semi-automatic text recognizing technology (also called as OCR) that parses the subtitles into text files. This parsing has to be done because the DVD subtitles will be stored in picture format and not in text format. Hence, they need to be recognized as characters before they are stored in text format.
SubRip includes a timing feature that ensures that all the subtitles are placed at the correct points within the film and allows for an ideal synchronization. It is mainly designed for the Windows Operating System and is widely used within the subtitle / movie industry. SubRip is the primary subtitle file processor that is most responsible for the SRT file format and is compatible with most media players.
Need for SubRip
As these subtitles are stored as images on the DVD-Video discs, they would occupy a lot of precious space when you simply copy them as images on to our HDDs or packed with DivX clips. This is problematic wherein people try to make average quality 1CD DivX movies and want to have subtitles on the same CD. But, more space the subtitles take, less the space will be for videos and worse the video quality will be.
Thus, SubRip tries to recognize the characters off from the images and stores them in plain text format, such as .srt subtitle format. However, SubRip doesn't actually recognize the characters, which you have to do for it. But, after first few translated sentences, the input required from you decreases dramatically.
