    Hi, I'm confused – Is this tool used to extract (make) a .srt file from the audio track of a video… OR is it supposed to embed (hard-code) an available .srt file into the video? I downloaded the latest version (Subtitle Edit 3.5.9). I NEED TO CREATE a .srt subtitle file from a movie as I cannot find it's subtitle anywhere. Please help.
