I use GNOME Subtitles to edit my subtitles. Is there any tool which works with video playback to code subtitles? I saw some screenshots where a subtitle tool has a video running inside it, allowing users to add subtitles easily.


Try gaupol. You should find it in the software centre, or will be able to install by running the following command:

sudo apt-get install gaupol
  • Thanks. Any chance we can batch translate subs ? Like, using a translation service like Google Translate – user227495 Aug 19 '17 at 14:13

  • For the translation part, I would borrow off someone's Windows computer and use Subtitle Edit. It is simple to operate and translates using Google Translate API (So you don't need local language support). – user3169 Aug 21 '17 at 15:15

I don't know how I missed. Gnome-subtitles also have the option to author subtitles based on a playing video.

All you have to do is open a video through Gnome-subtitles

In the Video menu, choose open

Here is the process in action
