I use R to fix subtitles that are not in sync with my movies. For the example below the subs were showing too early – so I added some time to each sequence in the srt file. For simplicity I used exactly 1 second in the below example.
You’ll see that I use my function dl_from_dropbox(), on which I wrote a post previously, to get the example file!

setwd(tempdir()")
options(digits = 12)
options(digits.secs = 3)

### get subtitle example file:
dl_from_dropbox
