SubRip (.srt) subtitle parser and writer

Project description

pysrt is a Python library used to edit or create SubRip files.

Basic Usage


>>> from pysrt import SubRipFile


>>> subs ='some/')
# If you get a UnicodeDecodeError try to specify the encoding
>>> subs ='some/', encoding='iso-8859-1')

SubRipFile are list-like objects of SubRipItem instances:

>>> len(first_sub)
>>> first_sub = subs[0]

SubRipItem instances are editable just like pure Python objects:

>>> first_sub.text = "Hello World !"
>>> first_sub.start.seconds = 20
>>> first_sub.end.minutes = 5


>>> subs.shift(seconds=-2) # Move all subs 2 seconds earlier
>>> subs.shift(minutes=1)  # Move all subs 1 minutes later
>>> first_sub.shift(seconds=1) # Move the first sub 1 second later
>>> first_sub.start += {'seconds': -1} # Make the first sub start 1 second earlier


>>> del subs[12]


>>> part = subs.slice(starts_after={'minutes': 2, seconds': 30}, ends_before={'minutes': 3, 'seconds': 40})
>>> part.shift(seconds=-2)

Saving changes:

>>>'other/', encoding='utf-8')
