    Thanks this tutorial really helped! I never knew VLC could search and add subtitles. And if I want to watch the movie on TV, it seems better to encode the subtitles once and for all.

      You're right. It's best to hardcode subtitles into the movie if you want to watch it on mobile devices and TVs.
