Enable Dual Subtitles on YouTube/Netflix/Amazon Prime in 2024

In this guide, 'dual subtitles' means watching a movie with two subtitles simultaneously on the screen. You may want to enable dual subtitles for training purposes. For instance, if you know English and are learning Spanish, turning on dual subtitles while streaming a video on Amazon Prime, YouTube, or Netflix might reduce your learning tenure and flatten the curve.

This piece is also helpful to video creators, as it teaches how to add dual subtitles to a clip or movie with the best AI-powered tool available in the market.

Part 1: How to Watch Dual Subtitles on YouTube

The following factors are involved when watching YouTube videos with dual subtitles:

  • The video must have two or more subtitles

  • The browser must support the feature

While managing the first of the above two prerequisites isn't in your control, you can manage the second with a few adjustments. To elaborate, if the uploader didn't add two or more subtitles to the video, you can't do anything about it. On the other hand, the browser part is manageable with the help of extensions, and Google Chrome is famous for its extensive library in this context.

Therefore, the following steps teach how to watch YouTube with dual subtitles:

  • Launch Google Chrome

  • Visit this link to go to the Dualsub Chrome extension and install it on your browser

  • Search and start streaming the YouTube video with two or more subtitles

  • Click the CC icon from the lower-right section of YouTube's web player

  • Click the Dualsub icon from the top-right

  • Select your preferred subtitle languages from both Subtitle Files lists

Note: Dualsub supports only two concurrent subtitle languages at the time of this writing. If you want to enable more subtitles for YouTube videos, a quick online search will redirect you to the one that fits your needs.

Part 2: How to Watch Dual Subtitles on Netflix

When streaming on Google Chrome, Netflix is no different than YouTube, except for the extensions you need to watch videos. While the installation process of all Chrome extensions is identical, the interface for the one dedicated to Netflix might vary. Also, several Chrome extensions for Netflix are available and you can pick any of them. As for this tutorial, NflxMultiSubs is used as a reference.

The following steps explain how to use NflxMultiSubs to enable dual subtitles for Netflix:

  • Visit this link and install NflxMultiSubs on Google Chrome

  • Start streaming a Netflix show or movie

  • Click the NflxMultiSubs icon from the top-right

  • Configure the parameters for the Primary Subtitles and Secondary Subtitles sections

  • Continue watching Netflix with dual subtitles

Part 3: How to Watch Dual Subtitles on Amazon Prime

  • Use Google Chrome to visit this link and install the Double Subtitles for Prime extension

  • Sign in to your Prime Video account and start streaming the show/video with more than one subtitles

  • Turn on the primary subtitles' language on Amazon Prime itself

  • Click the Double Subtitles for Prime extension icon from the upper-right

Part 5: FAQs on Dual Subtitles You Want to Know

Q1. What are double subtitles?

A1. Double subtitles are two subtitle files (typically in an SRT format) shipped with a movie. In most cases, audiences prefer enabling one language for subtitles to understand the dialog more clearly. However, in some instances, especially for learning purposes, they may want to turn on captions simultaneously in two or more languages. This arrangement is technically called double subtitles or dual subtitles.

Q2. Can you put subtitles in two languages?

A2. Yes. If you have a robust post-production application like HitPaw Edimakor, adding two or more subtitles to a video is child's play.

Q3. How do I add multiple subtitles to a movie?

A3. You can use the above method to exploit HitPaw Edimakor to add dual subtitles to a video.


Be it Amazon Prime, YouTube, or Netflix dual subtitles, you can enable any or all of these with the help of their corresponding Google Chrome extensions. If you use a different browser, e.g., Firefox, you can find extensions on their respective marketplace. The bottom line is that watching videos with two or more subtitles turned on is not challenging. However, complications arise when you plan to add multiple subtitles to your clips. But thanks to HitPaw Edimakor, which has your back and makes adding dual subtitles a simple task.
