How to fix subtitles delay or ealier with your movies by python code

Hi..all …today i was watching movie with subtitles . I had delay with my subtitles files ,like  subtitles mismatch with  the every scenes of movie.  .

I sloved this issue by python code .Subtitles are in .srt format. (e.x) Pirates of the Caribbean -The Curse of the Black Pearl(2003).srt

I found that i got delay by 2 minutes in my .srt file

Library that  i used : pysrt

Open your terminal (cntrl+alt+t)

type python —> enter into python interpreter mode

import pysrt

if you got any error like –> no moduled named pysrt.  then you need to install pysrt .To install pysrt – sudo easy_install pysrt

for python3 users its available pysrt3

if don’t get any error then you already have this library.

now , if you want to make a delay in .srt file means do like this

 

>>> subs.shift(seconds=-2) # Move all subs 2 seconds earlier
>>> subs.shift(minutes=1)  # Move all subs 1 minutes later

finally save this file from your terminal by

>>> subs.save('path to ur location/newfilename.srt', encoding='utf-8')

My Entire code which sloved my delay in .srt file

#! usr/bin/python
import pysrt
subs=open("/home/bala/Pirates of the Caribbean -The Curse of the Black Pearl(2003).srt")
subs.shift(minutes=-2) # Move all subs 2 minutes earlier
subs.save('/home/bala/new.srt', encoding='utf-8')#saves file with new.srt in your home directory

This sloved my problem .
Thats it..   Happy coding !!!!
