Sometimes we download movies that differs with our language and with that we are unable to know what exactly is happening in that movie. Although for me I actually don't like adding subtitle to my movies or rather I don't fancy a movie with subtitles. I prefer my movies to be in full HD and also the characters using the universal language which is English, as reading those subtitle kind off get be bored...
Out of all the media player in Google playstore I will solemnly recommend the MX player since its actually the best out there and its quiet easy for us to achieve our aim of adding subtitles to our movies easily.
Below is why I recommend MX player when it comes to adding subtitle to a movie.
* Ability to synchronized a subtitle thereby adjusting it the way you want.
* Ability to change subtitle font, color and border easily
* Ability to add background colour to subtitle
There are also many more features packed in the MX player for android. Although the free version of MX played is not ads free, but you can purchase the paid version which does not show ads. But trust me the ads hardly shows when watching a movie.
How to add the subtitle in a movie
