How this tool adjusts timings

This online tool will shift all the timings inside the subtitle files by the entered amount of milliseconds (a second is the same as 1000 milliseconds). After shifting the file, all the movie dialogue will appear earlier (if you entered a negative amount) or later (if you entered a positive amount). The resulting file is permanently synced up with the video.

The following subtitle formats can be resynced: srt, ssa, ass, smi and vtt. Multiple files can be uploaded at the same time, you can also upload a zip file.

When the sync won't work

This tool will only work correctly if the subtitles and the video are out of sync by the same amount the whole video long. If, for example, the first half of your subtitles have a delay of 5 seconds, and the second half by 10 seconds, then this tool won't work. In this case, you should use the partial shifter tool.
