VLC is a hero. It's the most customizable. But MPV is faster.

VLC media is a standard-setter for cross-platform, open-source, reliable, dependable, configurable media players. No doubt.
Except one tiny thing: Recently... VLC has gotten slow. Slow on Mac, slow on Linux, and... a little (not much) on Windows. (At least Windows 10.)
VLC deserves respect of a kind very few apps do. It's free, open source AND... at the time of writing (5th March 2017) it's beating Dropbox (nasty sh*t that that is - and it is, trust me!) as the most popular app for Windows on this site. That takes some doing. It really does.
But... here's the thing...: If ultimate customizability isn't so important to you, try MPV. Like VLC, MPV is open source, free and all the rest. But it's likely to load faster and play your thing with fewer glitches and hitches. Until you need the subtitles to be 5 pixels from the left edge of the screen and 8 ms offset from the audio. Then it's back to VLC.

The best media player hands down, on any platform, period. It can play any-and-everything video related. Never had anything audio it can't play as well. It's free. It can do A HUNDRED+ other things as well. Rip audio, make pics, cast webcams, stream youtube and other platforms, rip mp3s from the same, or the videos, etc, etc, etc. Solid piece of software, very easy to use for the laymen and it has a vast plethora of under-the-hood settings, addons, plugins. This little charmer is actually a beast.

User interface looks and feels old but the player itself is great, plays most videos out of the box, has many useful features and so on

Extremely overrated

Vlc can't even fullfill basic smart things like autoloading subtitles like bsplayer. Default audio&video renderer is always poor. Potplayer is better than this but it can't successfully autoload subtitles either.

VLC is probably the single most straightforward solution to all your media playing needs. It plays pretty much every single video and audio format out of the box for free and has an impressive array of features for advanced users. It's one of the frist programs I install on my computers.
