PressPlay is a great app for watching video on a Windows 8 device. It will play MP4,MKV and FLV files and it supports subtitle playback. The app has just been updated adding support for Windows 8.1 as well as subtitle improvements. Windows 8.1 support means the snap view works betting in split screen mode and any size you scale it to.

The app is free and available from the Windows Store and well worth giving a try.
