If you download subtitle files, STR, and you have a problem with the syncronisation then we have just the thing for you. allows you to paste the STR file into a box and then specify the amount of time that the titles are out by.  For example, they may be 2 seconds out.  Specify this and it will update the timecodes within the text.  You then paste the updated text back over and there you have it.

You can find Endless Subtitles here:
