Easy Subtitle Converter is a free program for the Microsoft Windows operating system that enables you to convert subtitles into more than 20 different formats.

Well over 20 different subtitle formats exist today, some more popular than others but there is a chance that you will stumble upon different formats when you download videos or subtitles regularly, or want to play a video file in a player.

It is better to have a subtitle in a different format than none at all, right?

Chance is that you will eventually come upon a subtitle that your media player won't play. And media player can be a software player or a hardware player, it does not really matter.

The only option to handle the issue is to either search for the subtitle in a different format, or to convert it into a format that is compatible with the media player that you are using.

Easy Subtitle Converter

Easy Subtitle Converter is a portable software program for the Windows operating system that can turn five supported subtitle formats into 20 different subtitle formats. The input formats that are supported are MPL2, SubRipper, TMPlayer, MicroDVD and Dual.

The output subtitle formats are:

AdobeEncoreDVD, AdvancedSSA, AQTitle, Cavena, Cheetah, CPC600, DKSSubtitleFormat, Dual, DVDArchitectSubtitleScript, DVDJunior, DVDSubtitle, DVDSubtitleSystem, FABSubtitler, InscriberCG, JACOSub2, KaraokeLyricsLRC, KaraokeLyricsVKT, MACDVDStudioPro, MacSub, MicroDVD, MPL, MPL2, OVRScript, PinnacleImpression, PowerDivX, PowerPixel, QuickTimeText, RealTime, SAMI, Scantitle890, Sofni, SonicDVDCreator, SonicScenarist, SpruceDVDMaestro, SpruceSubtitleFile, StreamSubTextPlayer, StreamSubTextScript, SubCreator1x, SubRipper, SubSonic, SubViewer1, SubViewer2, TMPlayer, TTXT, TurboTitler, UleadDVDWorkshop2, UleadDVDWorkshop2a, ViPlay, WincapsTextTimecoded, ZeroG

The subtitle converter itself is easy to use. Subtitles can be added to the program with the Add Files button at the top. It is possible to add multiple subtitles at once if they reside in the same directory so that they can be processed in one go.

The subtitle type will automatically be detected by the program. It is also necessary that the movie is located in the same directory so that the software can detect the movie's fps rate. For this, the movies need to be either in avi or mpeg format.

All that it takes afterwards is the selection of the output format. A click on the start button will initiate the subtitle conversion.

The most recent version of the program ships with three options that are enabled by default. It will backup source files automatically, enforce the proper use of extensions, and exit when the processing is done.

Easy Subtitle Converter can be downloaded from the developer's website. It is compatible with most versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system including Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP.

    Yeah right.. Like this is going to stop defender from running =) This is comedy gold right here.

    no ‘about the author’ paragraph?

    For permanent disable defender is if removed complete from system no just change permission folder.

    Just this is joke.

  5. moi said on March 9, 2023 at 5:57 pm

    simpler, load Autoruns (SysInternals)
    – filter “Defender”
    – untag all entries
    – reboot
    nothing has changed since my 1st modification years ago

    I wouldn’t disable Defender imho, it has too many hidden roots inside Windows itself. One time I tried to uninstall it using brute force scripts and then the Onedrive feature stopped working definitely. A reinstallation was needed and since those times I prefer to maintain Defender untouched. It’s a better method to install another antivirus and it will disable Defender in a safer and easier mode (e.g., Avast is the best in this way, and also Panda Cloud Free is good too).

    You can not stop defender from running in background or remove it without some penalty. All you can do is to limit telemetry.

      It’s probably Smartscreen which is preventing WD from being disabled. Get rid of that and the problem should be solved:

    Remove Windows and go for Linux.

    1. basingstoke said on March 10, 2023 at 2:51 pm

      Linux sucks dude. Besides it’s not comparable to Windows, these OSes are in different classes entirely.

      1. Derp said on March 10, 2023 at 4:36 pm

        I use Linux as my daily driver. It’s far more stable than Windows. When’s the last time you used Linux, 2010?

      2. Bromosexual said on March 11, 2023 at 2:04 am


        You’re right, dude. Bro, linux is just a bunch of code that starts before the OS, dude. Brobrodude, that shit ain’t even got emojis, dudebrodudeman! Dudebro, it’s no way near as cool as Windows with its hardcoded abilities to make money off the user, bro. Yo brodude man, you’re the coolest dude ever man, bro. Dude.

      3. basingstoke said on August 16, 2023 at 7:20 pm

        Lol what? Windows 7 doesn’t come with any Emojis

  9. TelV said on March 10, 2023 at 4:46 pm

    Download Autoruns and remove the checkmark from Windows Defender. It doesn’t remove it, but it will never run.

  10. Simon said on March 10, 2023 at 8:37 pm

    Just use “Defender Control”:

    Per this video,
    it also works on Windows 11 too…

  11. Someone said on March 10, 2023 at 9:26 pm

    Win Defender, is completly the most succesful free-built in antivirus of Microsoft. Really nice product. Saved my ass a lot of times. Has updated malware database, completly strong defence
    from whatever smart screen disables. Or if you want better and more upgrated (paid) program,
    you can go further. But defender is always on your side.

    Why would one disable Windows (or Microsoft) Defender in the first place?. I consider this to be playing with fire big time. Everybody knows that if one is using another A-V, Defender will be disabled on its own and won’t be in one’s way.

  13. Ed D said on March 10, 2023 at 11:09 pm

    Why would I want to disable Windows Defender in the first place? It’s a great anti virus in my opinion. Been using it since Windows 8 and and never had a problem or a virus. Why mess with a good thing, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

  14. owl said on August 17, 2023 at 1:57 am

    How a ridiculous article!
    I am thoroughly stunned.

    Why Should You Disable First-Party Windows Defender?
    I can only think that it is “malice or perversely intention (want you to buy a third-party AV where you can expect a back margin)” to guide invalidation without showing the premise.
    No sane company will use third-party closed source programs (such as AV).

    As I thought, “Ghacks Technology News” seems to be coming to downfall.
