what is a .idx file?

The IDX file extension is used for a Movie Subtitle File used by various programs of DVD playback that usually display subtitles. Also identified with .SUB files, it includes the text of the subtitle as well as points that specify as to when the subtitles should be viewed through the movie timeline. Subtitles are the films’ textual version normally written below or at the bottom of the screen. The text can represent the written translation of the dialogue used in a different language or the same text written in the same language. Creating subtitles especially during film festivals are very vital to a film’s target audience. Subtitles will play as the main dialogue of a movie and the core of what the movie is all about. Using subtitles on television for viewers who are deaf and having difficulty hearing is known as closed captioning. Various subtitles are also used in other media like in Operas where native language used is translated in English.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .idx. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
