http://www.linuxandlife.com – I just bought a Kindle Fire HD and it's pretty cool to watch movies with it. However, unlike with VLC, I dont know how to open the subtitle files with the built-in movie player of the tablet. Therefore I had to add the subtitles to the videos first before transferring them to the tablet. When there are many tools to add subtitles to videos , in this article I will show you a simple way to do the task with the command line - by using mencoder. Just move both the video and the its subtitle into one folder for convenience then run the following command: mencoder video-file -oac copy -ovc lavc -s (Distributions)
