How To Enable Subtitles on Movies Using Mx Player Application

MX Player application is the best video player on Android, it is better than Android's stock video player. I got to know about this application last two years when I bought a tablet that had a very low speaker and I could barely hear the sound it produces. So I went on a search for an Android Speaker Enhancing app and I found MX Player among the search results and downloaded it. Since then, I've never used any new device for more than 2 weeks without installing the Mx player app.

The app has a very beautiful though complex interface, but once you've used it for a week you should be able to know your way around the settings and options.

The app has lots of functions as a video player and also as an audio player. It supports and uses a Hardware tweak which is seen in the app as "HW " to optimize and increase the volume of your movies and music.

If I decide to talk about all the features you would find in Mx player then this post would probably not end in the next hour. So am just going to teach you how to activate and use one of its features which I believe most people would want to know about and that is "how to download and enable subtitles Mx-Player when watching a movie".

Subtitles are those write-ups that appear on the screen when the character on the TV talks or probably a song playing in the background.

Subtitles are usually important to users that loves to watch movies which an unfamiliar language is spoken. It helps the person watching the movie to understand the conversation between the characters, even though he doesn't understand the language being spoken in the movie. It also helps people that have issues with hearing.

By default, all movies do not have subtitles enabled, and most of those movies without subtitles are better understood if they had a subtitle. So to make things convenient for everyone I would teach you how you can display subtitles on all your videos using Mx player app on your smartphone.
