Editors' Review

+

You'll be impressed with this very handy, simple Flash video player, though a couple of quirks bring it down a notch or two from perfection.

FLVPlayer's five-button interface doesn't need a help file. Opening an FLV file is a mere matter of choosing it from a dialog or dragging and dropping it onto FLVPlayer. We really liked how this utility always correctly set the aspect ratio during playback, but some users may wish that the videos could be enlarged to fill the screen.

The volume slider is unobtrusive but difficult to finely set. On the other hand, the video position slider can be set to the hundredth of second. Buttons to move to the beginning or end of the video aren't as useful as they could be since the End button is disabled. Occasionally, moving the position slider to a particular second didn't work. Instead, pressing Play simply moved the slider to its previous position and restarted the video.

Flaws notwithstanding, anyone who has a collection of Flash Video files will love this tiny freeware player.
