    Need a subtitle file

    I have a DVD video that has guitar lessons on it which I’m trying to learn. The only problem is that I have a hearing problem and would like to have sub titles on it. The DVDs were made for apple so I had to install an app called “VLC Media Player” to open them. As I’m listening to them there is a button at the top that says “subtitle.” I click on it and it tells me to add a subtitle file. But I can’t seem to download any. Does anyone know what I can do to get the sub titles?

    Check in the folder Video.TS on the dvd, should be in there.

    Mike, thank you for your response and you are absolute correct about the files being there. But I have spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to use it. There is something that I must be doing wrong because I can’t see any subtitles. When I open I see two files; one is Audio_TS and the other is VIDEO_TS. If I click on Audio_TS nothing comes up. If I click on video_TS , I get several files such as
    VTS_OL_D.BUP, VIDEO_TS.IFD and several others with similar names. I can then open my media
    But I see no subtitle. Is there any way that you can see what I do not understand? I thank you very much for any help that you can give me. Frank

    In a conventional DVD Video disk, if it includes subtitles they will be embedded in the video track. Open File Explorer at This PC, right-click on the DVD drive and choose 'Play with VLC media player'. This should open the DVD and play it, complete with all the menus you'd expect when playing the DVD on a TV using a conventional DVD player.

    One of the menus available is often called Setup (or Settings, or similar). There should be an option there to turn on subtitles. That of course is assuming the DVD was made to include subtitles. A DVD of a film, for example often has a choice of subtitle tracks in various languages. VLC can use these subtitles exactly as you would in a normal DVD player.
