Time offset for embedded subs

so many times also the file embedded subtitles (dont mean hardcoded) are severely off sync, but the ‘time offset’ option isnt available for those. and many times there arent any subtitles available for those on opensubtitles.org.
so the ‘time offset’ option also for the embedded subtitles would be much appreciated. (basically all other media players can do it, so it is doable)


I experienced this issue for the first time today and I second that. Found a series with no external SRT files available but the video files have soft coded subs that are unfortunately out of sync. @james is this possible to allow this?

Don’t forget to show your support for this suggestion you need to like the first post in the thread. :wink:

Adjusting subtitle timing is available for external subtitles.

For some reason, it is not available for embedded subtitles, which would be very convenient when necessary (and that had happened to me a lot lately).
Currently, you have to find similar subtitles (or extract the embedded subtitles and put them in the right place) and then adjust timing.

I bet this is not a big development (sorry if I am wrong) and would not have any particular downside (it is just the last item in the subtitle menu anyway, and already appears for external subtitles).

Thanks in advance and have a great day!

First of all thank you for the best player that I’ve ever used!

Just wanted to ask if there is a reason why the embedded subtitles delay cannot be adjusted in Infuse Pro 6 and is there a plan to change this and introduce this feature?

Honestly, it is a little complicated to extract the subtitles every time from a video file to make it external and be able to adjust the delay during playback.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum!

Adjusting embedded subtitles presents a few technical challenges that we have not had time to look into. Generally, if a subtitle is embedded it is a good match for the video being played and will not require any adjustment. However, we’ve had a few suggestions from those wish to have subtitles intentionally out of sync (for various reasons), so adding the ability to adjust embedded subtitles is something we’ll likely look into for a future update.

Moving this to suggestions for now.

Great! Looking forward to seeing this in one of the next updates as this feature is one of the main features that I use.

Thanks for looking into this!

Any chance this could be implemented in the next builds? ??

hbo max releases have a general embedded subtitles delay of around minus half a second. since this is one of the biggest streaming services, working out a feature for delaying embedded subtitles would be very much appreciated.
