Is there a program that we can add it a folder and convert all .srt files exist at this folder to utf-8 srt files?
I want to can convert any language like Greek.
Don't need to do it 1 by 1 file.
Edit: I believe i find from my older topic.
The program "Subtitle edit" i believe it do the work fine.

If you are a Linux user i have a script to convert srt to utf8
ls *.srt | while read file ; do
charset=`file -bi $file | sed 's/.*charset=//'`
echo '###' $file $charset
case "$charset" in
us-ascii) charset="";; # no conversion needed
utf-8) charset="";; # no conversion needed
binary) charset="";; # no charset detected
if [ "$charset" != "" ] ; then
iconv -f "$charset" -t UTF-8 -o "$file".utf "$file" && mv "$file".utf "$file"
If you are a Windows users you have to convert this script to Windows batch style, i can't help you with that.
For others who are looking for this solution open subtitle edit/tools/batch convert.I think,therefore i am a hamster.
