Does anybody knows an easy way to create a .vtt (WEBVTT) subtitle file with an .rtf file? I don't want to have to type all the subtitles new to get the .vtt format!

Is there an easy way to convert it? In example with a software? It's a thing I have to do only a single time so it would be nice to be able to use freeware.


P.S.: To give an example. This is the content of the .rtf file:

\cf0 Hola, el meu nom \'e9s Marta Peric\'e0s.\
Tinc 22 anys.\
\cf0 0002 00:00:06:05 00:00:08:18 38\
\cf0 Visc a Sabadell, \
a prop de Barcelona.\

And in the end it should look like this proper .vtt file:

0:00:02.26 --> 0:00:05.74
Hi, my name is Marta Pericàs and I'm 22 years old.

0:00:06.40 --> 0:00:08.74
I live in Sabadell, near Barcelona.
  • I never seen this kind of format you're showing as .rtf... There's a wonderful tool from Uruguay, like a decade old (or more) and still on the run, that I always use to subtitle but, for one, it doesn't accept RTF and then there's this issue that your input format is really strange... Oh, it does have the WebVTT as output format.

  • A good text editor like notepad++ or atom or sublime text might be the tool you need. This looks like a job for regular expressions. xkcd.com/208
