VLC media player
Simply the best multi-format media player
Few things are more annoying in the world of cinema than when you're settling down to watch a film and the subtitles are out of sync.
Normally, this can mean long, painstaking searches across the Net to find the right subtitle file for your film. This is, however, a very hit-and-miss process and it takes ages. As long as your subtitles are in .srt format, SubFix can help you synchronize ".srt" files with the audio track of a movie. The good thing about SubFix is that you only have to make the adjustment once to ensure that the rest of the film is in sync.
Of course, VLC Player allows you to tinker with the subtitle syncing by pressing the "H" and "J" key but any corrections you make are only temporary, as you'll soon find the film out of sync again.
The SubFix interface simply requires you to indicate the precise timing of two separate subtitles. This means browsing to two .srt subtitle files for the film. Subfix then automatically interpolates it for all the other subtitles in the file and the result should be that your subtitles work in sync again. The interface is very elegant as it's based on Cocoa and you can also search your subtitle files for specific words or scenes.
It's a shame it doesn't support other subtitle formats and truth is, it's better to simply make sure you have the right subtitle track than mess around with this but if you find yourself really stuck, SubFix can help you get back in sync.

I used to work on windows using subtitle workshop to convert subs on .srt or simply adjust the timing between subs and audio on films. Now that i am using an IMac I could not find any program who would be able to do it. I took the risk on this one and what a wonderful surprise, it works. I just adjust the timing and converted the whole thing in to a dvd, and the subs are completely synchronized. The only thing is that you must have a good sense on timing yourself, bacause you have to listen to the audio on the film on any player you have on your Mac and put the correct time on this program and save it as a new file with the new timing you just put it in. anyway with a little patience you can have your subs working accordingly.
Pros: simple, light, easy to use and free. On the HELP tag of the program you have a kind of directory who explains simply how to work it on. very well detailed and easy to understand the explanation on how to do it.
Cons: you cannot open the film altogether, you must listen to the audio on your normal player while insert the correct timing on the program.

After hours of trying to manually change framerates, I came to this site and stumbled upon this program. I had actually given up with Jubler and Aegisub, and was looking for a subtitle editor for a different purpose. I couldn't believe it worked. I have seen so many post in so many forums about synchronizing subtitles to avi files and can't believe no one ever mentioned this software. That is really its main purpose.
