I sure wish someone here either knew of or would communicate to the sites that stream movies and tv shows to please add closed captions for hearing impaired people like me. Besides that, the movies and shows are recorded at a lower volume it seems because how loud they play it in the movie theaters. Perhaps someone would be interested in writing a program for such a player because I cannot use vlc to stream my media. Any help would be appreciated.

Although I am not hearing impaired I use closed captions pretty consistently.  All of the major TV networks that put up full episodes for streaming have the option to enable closed captions and most allow you to change various qualities about them such as font used, color, background color, opacity, etc.
