    Sooo I just downloaded a subtitle file for an anime and the white text sometimes disappear because the anime uses white backgrounds a lot.
    Are there anyway I can add black backgrounds to the subtitles?
    The format is .srt

    Check your video player settings.

    Yeah - the settings should have an option to apply a black stroke to all text, or at least have a drop shadow effect.
    Also, perhaps change the font colour to yellow - that's how I have all my subs.
