    Someone, somewhere in the subtitling community is using some really screwed up software that splits all multi-line entries so every line is its own entry. Even worse, when it splits them it duplicates the timestamp. Could be converting, poorly, from closed captions.

    Some players will do weird things with those subtitles. PotPlayer inverts the order of them, displaying the earlier duplicate entry on the bottom then stacks the later ones above it.

    Oddly, MKVToolnix GUI's multiplexer *does not* throw any errors on *duplicate* times, only on *overlapping* ones or ones where the end time is earlier than the start time.

    Is there any SRT cleanup or fixer or editor software that can fix this?

    Into this. Note that entry 7 is supposed to be one line, becomes the new entry 5
