SubCleaner is an application designed to remove troublesome content within subtitle files. It is especially created for users with hardware DivX players and other devices that are unable to handle subtitles with special characters. The utility has a robust and intuitive interface and is completely free.

With SubCleaner, you no longer need to spend time manually editing the subtitles. All you have to do is to drag and drop one of the many supported formats on its interface and the application will do the rest.

From the Preferences panel, users may additionally specify one or multiple text functions applied. You can automatically wrap lines when reaching a predefined number of characters. Moreover, SubCleaner can remove all accents, style tags and delete all characters within square brackets.

The utility supports multiple popular subtitle formats like MicroDVD, MPL2, TMPlayer and SubViewer.

The process of cleaning a subtitle of unwanted content is almost instant. SubCleaner will save the newly cleaned subtitle in the same location and backup the original file in a new folder.

Overall, this is a fast, automated tool which should please all DivX hardware player owners as well as any user looking for a way to quickly clean their subtitles.
