A repair tool for .srt subtitle files
This is a repair tool for .srt subtitle files. It rebuilds .srt files and eliminates common bugs and corruptions with a flexible algorithm.

Its made in C++ and is freeware.

For a detailed list of the different .srt bugs & corruptions it can repair check out the “issues.htm” file. Note that SRTWiz will repair ANY combination of any of these bugs & corruptions.

SRTWiz creates backup files so that you will never lose any data. Its designed to create a backup file of the original .srt file before any repair, if it for some reason cannot create a backup file, it will cancel the repair process for safety reasons.

How to use:

Its easy to use! Just drag & drop the .srt file onto SRTWiz and it will automatically repair the file and make a backup of the old .srt file naming it *.old and place it in the same directory.

Just make a shortcut to SRTWiz and place it on the desktop or make it a quick launch item where you easily can drop .srt files onto it.


  • Not exactly an issue but the .srt files to be repaired cannot be write protected since SRTWiz will rebuild it and replace it.
  • The .srt file cannot be less than 29 bytes long.
  • The file cannot contain the ascii character “�” (208). This is a special character used in the repair process of the file.
