Chinese DVDs, no captions

October 18, 2013, 02:10 AM posted in General Discussion

There is a library near where I live with a huge collection of Chinese DVDs, but it seems that none of them have Chinese captions, and they only have English subtitles. 

This is bad, but it would be much better for me to watch them with Chinese captions.  Does anyone have any solutions for this, such as how I can find transcripts of various films?

There are a lot of sites where you can find Chinese subtitles, but my favorite is

The best way for you to watch would be to rip the DVD  you want to watch to your computer, download the subtitles and then watch in a media player of your choice (preferrably VLC or MPC-HC). If you don't already have a DVD ripping program, I recommend

If you really want to go all out, you can use this site to combine both English and Chinese subtitles into one .srt file, and be able to watch with subtitles in each language.

Hope this helps, and hope it's not too confusing.
