  1. Hi, I wonder if anyone can help. I have been removing some srt files from MP4 films for my elderly parents. On one file and one file only the font keeps switching from small to massive. Is there anyway I can highlight the lot in an editor of some kind and change the font size.

    Thanks guys

    Are you sure it's srt? Because srt do not contain any font size information.

    But try open the subtitle file in subtitle edit and resave as a new srt.

    Srt can contain font size tags which are mostly ignored by hardware players,if the files are being played on the computer then the font tags can be used depending on the player,could also be a ssa sub.

    Actually, I believe (at least on my system) some players will honor many SRT attributes. For instance if I use this as an SRT:

    Code:
    1
    00:00:15,140 --> 00:00:16,720
    <font face="Cronos Pro Light" size="20" color="#ff0000">I feel like you're driving me to a court-martial.</font>
    
    2
    00:00:15,140 --> 00:00:16,720
    <font face="Cronos Pro Light" size="10" color="#00ff00">This is crazy. What did I do?</font>
    
    3
    00:00:15,140 --> 00:00:16,720
    <font face="Cronos Pro Light" size="20" color="#0000ff">I feel like you're going to pull over and snuff me.</font>
    
    4
    00:00:15,140 --> 00:00:16,720
    <font face="Cronos Pro Light" size="20" color="#fff0cf">This is crazy. What did I do?</font>

    You get something like this:

    I grant you that not all players / converts / etc. honor the flags but many honor these as well as many additional ones:

    <b></b> : bold
    <i></i> : italic
    <u></u> : underline
    <font color=”#rrggbb”></font> : text color using 3 color components, red, green and blue.

    OOps... John0 you beat me to it with a better explanation as to why it may or may not work.

  7. I blieve if you go beyond these 4 basic formatting you're on your own. Some players/converters will honor it. Some won't.

    Code:
    Bold  <b> ... </b> or {b} ... {/b}
    Italic  <i> ... </i> or {i} ... {/i}
    Underline  <u> ... </u> or {u} ... {/u}
    Font color  <font color="color name or #code">
