Aaaaa! I've learned how to do subtitles on vids!!

I've been wanting to do this for awhile, but I always thought there would be a steep learning curve and/or you'd need special software. Come to find out, you can make .srt files in a text editor; you just have to put in the timestamps for each line of subtitle manually. (I'm using this method.) It really doesn't take long for a 3-minute vid, and I've fallen down the rabbit hole of tweaking the start and end of each subtitle. OH LOOK, A BRAND NEW VIDDING TIMESINK. XD

These subtitles are not embedded in the vid (I think you do actually need special software for that), but if the .srt file is in the folder with the vid and it's opened in VLC, it ought to work - it works great for me!

Right now I'm making subs for the Flash vid I'm currently working on, but now that I know how to do it, are there any of my old vids that anyone would like subtitles for and/or fandoms that you'd like to request subtitles in? In theory I can now make them for literally any vid, not just my own; it's just that I need to be able to open it in a vid player that will give me second-accurate timestamps since I need to look up the start and end for each subtitle line to get the timing right.
