I'm hard of hearing and I usually use VLC specifically because of the
subtitle option and the ability to turn it up to 200%. My Samsung TV also
provides subtitles if it can find an .str file in the same folder as the
media file, which I've found quite helpful (I think most smart Samsung TVs
have this ability).

Otherwise I can *just *about make do without subtitles, but it definitely
makes a difference when they're available.
