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.

"Spyware Included with Misleading install"

March 10, 2012  |  By treily

 |  Version: FLV and Media Player 3.0

Pros

The s p y ware is great.

Cons

This maker has included s p y ware that no one wants so he can make a profit. Do not use this program anymore, it has issues anyway, like you can't move the window, read other reviews.

Summary

Use GOM or anything else but this s p y ware.

c n t blocks this review because of the words.

"Full of bloatware, window won't move, didn't play file"

March 06, 2012  |  By gpjt

 |  Version: FLV and Media Player 3.0

Pros

None I was able to see, perhaps it didn't play my file because it was too large though, so the jury's out on whether it plays FLV files generally

Cons

Installer tries to get you to install all kinds of junk, and when the app starts you can't move the window around (this is on Windows Vista). It also didn't display anything when playing my file, though that might be because it was too large (it's a 7-hour capture of a desktop which VLC couldn't play, which is why I tried this thing out).

Summary

I wouldn't bother.

"I'm Glad I Have A Previous Version"

March 03, 2012  |  By lvaughan53

 |  Version: FLV and Media Player 3.0

Pros

Plays FLV files

The new version did not delete the prior version so I'm glad I can still use the prior version.

Cons

I don't like the new version (3.0) because I can't stop the video without closing it. I can't move the screen either so where it opens on my desktop, there it stays.

Summary

If I did not have a prior version of the flv player I would be very critical of this player. However, I'm hoping that there will be updates to version 3.

"This is terrible!"

February 29, 2012  |  By LordThanos

 |  Version: FLV and Media Player 3.0

Pros

Plays FLV files

Cons

FULL of software you did not ask for! This makes me not trust CNET downloads anymore. The fact they have this on here is astounding.

"Good, but . . . Beware other programs"

February 26, 2012  |  By Pelham08

 |  Version: FLV and Media Player 3.0

Pros

A good program but . . .

Cons

When installing this program you suddenly find youself installing a string of other programs you do not want - rather sharp practice I think. I like the player but object to apparently being forced to then have to uninstall a load of junk (in my opinion) - it is vaery hard to find appropriate opt-outs & then you have to go to all the trouble of uninstalling each of the irrelevant 'extras'.

Summary

Installing this program gives you more than you bargained for - beware!
