Adding captions or subtitles to your DivX video will not only make it more accessible to more viewers, it will also expand the reach of your content. Providing captions and transcripts of your videos can improve your content’s SEO and help your video rank higher on Google.

Captions also provide a better user experience, resulting in higher average watch times for your videos. Many people choose to watch videos without sound, and adding captions and subtitles will help keep these viewers engaged.

DivX videos are a great option for editors who need a smaller file size without sacrificing video quality. You can add captions and subtitles to your video through the DivX Converter, which we’ll demonstrate in more detail below. DivX software supports AVI, MKV files, and HEVC, and works with standard subtitles file formats such as SRT, SSA/ASS, and DVD/XSUB.

To begin, make sure you have your caption or subtitle file ready to upload. Save yourself time and ensure more accurate captioning with Rev’s captioning and subtitling services. Rev captions and subtitles have quick turnaround times and guaranteed 99% accuracy, all at an affordable cost. Rev captions are also available in the compatible SRT format for DivX videos.

Any error messages are most likely due to a DivX AVI issue caused by a missing codec. To avoid this error, don’t cancel the DivX dynamic download of the required codec after adding the video file into the converter. If the audio track is not in sync with the subtitles, adjust the Delay setting in the “DivX Preferences” menu under “Subtitles”.
