    1.first of all u need to download this porgaram this is where you will download the movie. 2.after u finish downloading safe watch go to this webstie and search the movie you want to watch and then download the 1080p option and torrent. 3.while the movie is being downloaded go this webstie '' and search for the movie you wanna add subtitles to and shoce the most rated subtitle and the languege that u want. oh and you need winrar to download the subtitle file. download it if you dont have it. click on the file u downloaded on your chrome page, and in winrar right click the file and chose 'extract to a specific folder' and chose the folder you want your subtitle to be saved. i personally save in desktop. downloada this this is where you will watch the movie. 5.once the movie is done being downloaded go to vlc in your pc, go to top left and press on 'media', 'open file', and press on the movie you just downloaded. it is probably located in 'downloads'(u can always go to safe watch and change to file's location) press on the movie twice, it will start immediately. then search for 'subtitle' at the top of the bar,where you found 'media'. then go to where u saved the subtitle file double press it adn it will be added immediately.

    Are you sure you are not just recording multiple audio tracks and whatever is the first track is what you hear when you play back the recording? See if the player you use (I recommend VLC) has an option to change the audio track during playback to check if this is the case. | 2021-07-03

    Don’t. Download VLC (it’s the similar setup, you simply download and run the application) if you want to play .mkv files. Another option is MKV, but I would recommend tha you start with VLC here:
