Import captions from srt failure bug

I don't know if its really a bug or what exactly is going on but this keeps happening and I am losing a ton of time because of it.

 

Basically, whenever I export captions to SRT to edit them in notepad (because you can't remove certain words, or dots or commas with 1 button :p) and when I try to import them back I get this error message. 

 

I have no idea whats causing it, my guess would be that I accidentaly pressed space or enter somewhere and deleted it and now it doesn't recognize the new line because it was user generated but I could be completely wrong.

 

I couldn't attach the bugged srt files so I put them here: 

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1OXnGbb1eVFWQr9Qx5kncdTUDqWW1aS1z?usp=sharing

 

Maybe someone can tell me dig into them and tell what's wrong.

 

My workaround for now is to generate new captions with the same settings and export them again and copy paste every line from the file that doesn't import to the file that does which... takes unneccesary time.

Inguss,

 

My guess is you did not keep the timecodes exactly as exported. The milliseconds should have a comma before each one.

 

This is a "good" sample:

 

1
00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:02,000
Subtitle at 0 Sec

2
00:00:05,042 --> 00:00:07,042
Subtitle T2 at 5 sec, Track 1

 

Yours looks like:

 

1
00:00:00 083 --> 00:00:01 266
Blue to wilds

2
00:00:01 266 --> 00:00:01 766
ah man
