When downloading video files using the Blueye File Transfer application, or the Blueye Android App, you will also receive a subtitle file with dive data. When playing the video file in a player with support for external subtitle files the dive information will be displayed on top of the video.
However, if you wish to share the video file online or you wish to edit multiple video files together to a movie in a video editing software, you need to permanently overlay the subtitles on the video file before sharing it or importing it to your video editor.
HandBrake is a free, open-source video transcoder software, with support for permanently embedding subtitles on a video file. An alternative to HandBrake is the Submerge 3 app ($18.99), available on the macOS App Store.
1. Start HandBrake and select the video file you wish to add dive information to.
2. Select the Subtitles tab. Right-click and select the menu item Add External Subtitle Track...
3. Select the .srt file with the same name as the .mp4 video file you have selected.
4. Optional: Select the Video tab to verify video quality settings. This setting controls the size and quality of the new video file with subtitles. By default the Constant Quality setting is set to 22, consider setting this to 19.
5. Optional: Click the Preview button to open the Preview Window.
6. Optional: Click the Live Preview button to preview your video.
7. Optional: Edit the filename in the Save As input field, and select an output folder.
8. Click the Start button to process your video and add subtitles. Progress information will be displayed at the bottom of the window.
