In very short period of time, Terrarium TV got a lot of attention and loyal fans.

But is Terrarium TV perfect app for streaming videos?
Well, yes. It has almost everything any user required for a good entertainment experience but sometimes, it creates some problems with subtitles.
There are HD links for streaming movies & TV shows and among them, some consists of Subtitles and some may not. Sometimes, you will find unsynced subtitles. But, this is not the app problem. Terrarium TV app does not add or modify the subtitle files in the streaming links. It all happens from the source.
If you really need subtitles while watching movies and TV shows, then this post is for you.
Add Subtitle in Terrarium TV App
As you already know that Terrarium TV streams movies and Tv shows from the sources and it does not host any of the video files on their own servers. For streaming movies and tv shows, it requires a player that can decrypt data from streaming links in the form of videos.
If the streaming links don’t have subtitles or have unsynced subtitles then it really ruins the user experience. The ExoPlayer (inbuilt player) is not capable to add external subtitles. Moreover, there is no option for subtitles synchronization in the ExoPlayer.
