the only issue is that, sometimes there are issues with the subtitles. In this tutorial, we will teach you how to fix these issues.

One mobile video player I love is Mx player. Whatever the MX stands for, I really do not know but all I know is that it is one of the best video player.

It tops it’s competitors in terms of quality sound, light size, quality video, mobile friendliness, easy subtitles uploading and more.

For the movie lovers, there’s nothing as annoying as watching a movie in a different language without English subtitles.

Oh! I forgot. There’s something more annoying than that.

And What’s it?

… Watching a movie using a subtitle that is either lagging behind or is too fast in speed.
This means watching a movie with a subtitle but the video’s audio is faster or slower than the subtitle..

In a normal sense, both the audio and subtitles are supposed to be together,at the same time. But in some cases, it is not so.

What affects the synchronization of subtitles in movies?

you might be wondering why your subtitles show some seconds after the words have been said.

Apart from error timing from the subtitle file maker, one of the most important reason is because of the initial advert / introduction before the movie starts.

Originally,the subtitles were meant for the movies but these little introductory adverts affect the subtitle timing.

In this article, I’ll show you how to download,use, and fix mx player issues.
