I have a subtitle .srt file. Is there an app which can change the encoding of this file.
(I guess it's encoding is Arabic(windows-1256) but vlc and MXPlayer didn't open it.) The link of subtitle is here.

  • Is there a Apple product involved in this ? – Ruskes Apr 16 '15 at 16:36
  • @Buscar웃 My laptop is MacBook Air and I'm searching for an app or a way to do it. – Hoseyn Heydari Apr 16 '15 at 16:39
  • If it is not asking to much, please provide the link to the subtitle file so we can check on it. – Ruskes Apr 16 '15 at 16:42

    It seems to be in Arabic (DOS) encoding. You could open in TextEdit and resave as UTF-8 or what ever you want. – Tom Gewecke Apr 16 '15 at 17:32

I often use this online converter to get my .srt in UTF-8, give it a try !

  • Your answer helped me in my work. But you didn't provide any application to do it. Maybe you can claim there is no such app. Then I figure it as an answer. – Hoseyn Heydari May 18 at 10:12

    Well, as Tom Gewecke said you should be able to do it with TextEdit but I always had issue doing it (you can set this in TextEdit > Preferences > Open and Save > Plain Text Encoding > Opening/Saving). I find out this online converter much simpler ! – Edd Growl May 18 at 13:49
