I've got DVD video disc where I feel subtitles are displayed little too late. Is it possible to finetune appearance of subtitles to little earlier?

If they are in some subtitle file, sure.

And this pre-supposes that you edit files and will dive into what SRT files are.

SRT files for example are widely documented such as so there should be no questions about sub title editing.

Now you can alter the times as you wish, re-create the DVD and you're done.
