Editors' Review

+

Most people don't need anything more than a Web browser and a Macromedia plug-in to watch Flash videos. However, if you want a hair's breadth more control over your viewing, this open-source freeware program will do the trick.

FLV Player's exceedingly simple controls allow you to navigate backward and forward through videos and play them in a loop. You can also adjust the volume, mute it, and adjust the size of the player. The Settings menu provides some basic control over program behavior, such as opening a new player window when double-clicking on an FLV file and remembering previous settings. And that's about it.

Our only major complaint is that the display window doesn't automatically resize to the size of your movie frame. We hope this problem will be remedied in future versions. FLV Player isn't a must-have by any stretch, but it's a decent tool for penny-pinching Flash developers.

"Works well"

April 04, 2011  |  By michaelpremsrirat

 |  Version: FLV Player 2.0.25

Pros

Convenient way to play FLV. Nice interface. Excellent image quality.

Cons

Unresponsive controls. Unable to run more than one instance.

Summary

Works just fine but imperfect. Unable to run more than one instance, so needs to switch files (clicked on second file, hoping it would switch video files, instead opened second window and two FLV players were running without responding anything but three-fingered salute).

"The BEST FLV video player. Period."

March 09, 2011  |  By bzzman

 |  Version: FLV Player 2.0.25

Pros

Ok, you must have bad antivirus. I have the following:
Spybot Search and Destroy
Windows Defender
Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware
So really, No virus people. Relax, and I have TeaTimer, which I have set to scan any file that runs. Nothing came up.

Cons

Pretty much nothing. Just does what it says it does.

Summary

No virus. Does what it says it does. Good download, and for added protection, I have IE9 and it scanns all dowloaded files after download.
