    I got this TV show with such anoying subs I don't know how to fix it. Instead of coming in bunch of two lines and then switch for another two different line dialogue, like it's suppose to be, lines comes by 3, and, a little bit like credit at the end of a movie, the bottom line switch to middle line, then to top line, making the whole thing almost unreadable while watching.

    Thanks and I hope my explanation were clear.

    Here's an example:

    1
    00:00:01,068 --> 00:00:02,568
    PROBST: Previously on

    2
    00:00:02,569 --> 00:00:03,070
    PROBST: Previously on
    <i>Survivor:</i>

    3
    00:00:03,071 --> 00:00:05,271
    PROBST: Previously on
    Survivor:
    There was no food at Rotu, so

    4
    00:00:05,272 --> 00:00:07,340
    Survivor:
    There was no food at Rotu, so
    the tribe competed for the kill.

    5
    00:00:07,341 --> 00:00:08,908
    There was no food at Rotu, so
    the tribe competed for the kill.
    Kathy was the first to find

    6
    00:00:08,909 --> 00:00:09,877
    the tribe competed for the kill.
    Kathy was the first to find
    protein...

    7
    00:00:09,878 --> 00:00:12,078
    Kathy was the first to find
    protein...
    We found thousands of shells!

    8
    00:00:12,079 --> 00:00:13,379
    Protein...
    We found thousands of shells!
    PROBST: and redeemed

    9
    00:00:13,380 --> 00:00:14,647
    We found thousands of shells!
    PROBST: and redeemed
    herself with the tribe.

    You could try using vlc or klite to download better subs if there's any.However if there's not you'll have to delete whatever text isn't required at that particular time frame assuming the time frames aren't stuffed up

    example:sub numbering is usually one line down from the one above

    00:00:09,878 --> 00:00:12,078
    Kathy was the first to find
    protein...

    8
    00:00:12,079 --> 00:00:13,379
    We found thousands of shells!

    9
    00:00:13,380 --> 00:00:14,647
    PROBST: and redeemed
    herself with the tribe.

    Any text added that advertises who coded the subs can be deleted like so.If ad is in middle of subs just delete the text not the timing,if it's at the bottom deleting the timing is ok
    02:00:05 --> 02:00:20
    {font color set} coded by blah blah blah {font blah blah}

    02:00:05 --> 02:00:20
    {font color set} {font blah blah}
