What exactly is a file with an SRT Caption?
The abbreviation "SRT" stands for "SubRip Subtitle format." It got its name from a piece of DVD-ripping software that was utilised to remove subtitles and the timings associated with those subtitles from DVDs and various other types of videos.
Before some bright minds came up with SRT, caption files were written in XML code, which resulted in them being quite cumbersome. The whole wide world required something simpler! As a result, the SRT file format was developed.

Regarding the SRT Format (SubRip)
Even though the SubRip (SRT) format is one of the most widely used formats for subtitling and captioning, it is considered one of the most fundamental.
Most video players and software for media editing and recording, including VLC, KMPlayer, BS Player, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, Facebook, and YouTube, fully support SubRip files. These files are denoted by the extension.srt after their names, and they have this extension.
Four primary components make up a SubRip file:
A number that identifies each of the subtitles is known as the Subtitle Sequence Number. The subtitles have a sequential numbering system that begins with 1.
Timecodes for the beginning and end of the subtitle are used to indicate when the subtitle should appear on the screen and when it should disappear.
The beginning and ending timecodes are formatted as follows: hours:
- Seconds and milliseconds for each minute (yes, the fractional separator is a comma).
- The actual words that make up the subtitle or caption.
- A blank line denotes the completion of one subtitle and the beginning of another.
- The SRT file format is broken down here.
SRT is capable of supporting some fundamental text formatting, which is based on HTML tags:
<b>...</b> - bold
<u>...</u> - underline
<i>...</i> - italic
...</font> - font colour
X1:... X2:... Y1:... Y2:... - line position/coordinates (placed after the timecodes)
