How to make subtitles (srt files) for music videos?

If you are like me and love to watch music video clips, maybe you also have the need to sing along.
Because almost any video player support subtitles files, the easiest way is to have such a file and open your clip in a player of your choice.
One way to go is to write or download the lyrics, open them in a subtitle editor and synchronize them manually. But if you ever try it, you most likely know that is a very time-consuming job.
While it is very easy to find and download lrc files from the internet, they most probably are synchronized for the audio and not for the video clips, and therefore not very valid to follow along.
On the other hand, there are millions of lyrics text files. So, why not get one and convert it into an subtitle file?

When I was in search of a program that timestamp text files and convert them into 'lrc' files, I noticed that there are quite a few who do a very good job, but none of them support video files, and that's why I decided to build my own one, and now I share it with all who want to use it.
While there are many sites where to download lyrics, my favorite is AZLyrics. Just copy the lyrics in a text file and save it on your hard disk.
Open my 'lrcOrSrtMaker', write or paste in the song name, choose your audio or video file, choose the lyrics text file, play the song, and just hit the line of text every time when necessary. When done, the timestamped lyrics file will appear in your download folder.

How to make subtitles (srt files) for instruction or presentation videos?

Have you recorded a nice video that you want to share with millions? Thought of uploading it to YouTube? That’s great! But did you know that having subtitles or a transcript can seriously boost the potential reach of your videos?
This happens for a reason. Search engines – such as Google – use crawlers to find content online. These crawlers can only understand text, so providing your video with subtitles or a full transcript of your content can give your work a boost in search engines.

While it's very easy to write the text file, it is not that easy to timestamp them. Although you can do this on YouTube Studio or use any note editor and do this manually and then upload them. It is a very time-consuming job. With this tool, you can timestamp your text file just with one click.
When you upload the file to your YouTube channel, make sure to select "with timing". If you select "without timing" your subtitles will lose their specific time codes and will be spread evenly across the whole video.

How to make lrc files for audio files?

Like I wrote in an earlier article, there are many online lrc-makers that do a good job. This is just another one that I specially made for video files, but you can use it just the same for the making of lrc files.

Open my 'lrcOrSrtMaker', write or paste in the song name, choose your audio or video file, choose the lyrics text file, play the song, and just hit the line of text every time when necessary. When done, the timestamped lyrics file will appear in your download folder.

What are lrc files (*.lrc)?

LRC is a computer and mobile file format that synchronizes song lyrics with an audio file, such as MP3. It is derived from the term LyRiCs. The extension of the lyrics file is .lrc. The LRC file type is primarily associated with Lyric File. When an audio file is played with certain music players on a computer or modern digital audio players, the song lyrics are displayed. These files are supported by multiple music players and software. The lyrics file generally has the same name as the audio file, with a different filename extension. For example, song .mp3 and song .lrc. Also If the file name is not the same as the music file name, you can rename it by keeping the extension the same. The LRC format is text-based and similar to subtitle files.
