Enable AVI Subtitles on PS3

The Playstation 3 only supports hard coded subtitles. So if you’ve got an AVI video file and a separate subtitle file (srt idx or sub file) you’ll need to create a new video with the subtitles hard coded.

The following steps detail how to do this.

  1. Make sure that your subtitle file is in the same folder as your video file and that they have the same file name
  2. Download AVIAddXSubs – Download Page
  3. Extract the files
  4. Run ‘AVIAddXSubs’
  5. Select the video file and click ‘Start’
  6. The process takes about a minute. When finished you will have a new video file in the folder
  7. Transfer the file to your playstation 3. To turn on the subtitles press triangle whilst playing the video and select the subtitles option.
