Convert captions/subtitles from SRT to XML

SRT (SubRip Text) is a basic subtitle format that includes subtitle time and text information, while XML (Extensible Markup Language) is used to represent, share, and transport arbitrary data structures in a text format. There are occasions where you need to convert SRT files, commonly used for providing subtitles in videos, into XML to make them compatible with certain proprietary software. Below is a detailed guide on how to convert SRT to XML using our Caption Subtitle Converter.
