Step 2. Go to your desired music video. Let’s pick Super Junior’s Sexy, Free & Single as an example.  Click on ‘Show Subtitle Editor’.  On all segmented videos, you should see a new line with the code ‘Mu’.

Step 3.  Sub, save and cancel as you would for other languages.

Step 4. Once subbing is complete, click on ‘Show Video Player’ and check the small buttons on the bottom right of the video player. If it doesn’t read ‘MU’, click on one of them and select ‘Karaoke’ from the ‘Also Available In’ menu.
