VLC is a free and open-source media player, with it you can play the mayority of video and music files without needing to install separate codecs, since VLC does it for you. It features fully customizable hotkeys that makes very easy to use. It supports internet streaming to listen to online radio stations or watch videos online without the need to download them beforehand, and it lets you create bookmarks for your favorite online radio stations. You can also create basic playlists with the music in your computer.

It also supports subtitles through srt files, which you can customize by changing where they are shown, the color or the font.
