"Plays files in good quality"

December 21, 2015  |  By John Baughman89

2015-12-21 02:57:56  |  By John Baughman89

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

FLAC as we all know is a lesser known media file format and is not supported by all media players or devices. To avoid having to convert all your files to supported formats, download this Free FLAC player and play your files in great quality or any glitches.

Cons

No cons to pinpoint.

"crapware hides good flac player"

October 14, 2015  |  By MatHuijb

2015-10-14 00:26:19  |  By MatHuijb

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Does the job
Easy to use
Extended functionality like building and using playlists

Cons

After installation you first have to get rid of annoying adware.
Afterwards you have to install your web browser again as all your favorites, incl. LastPass, have been removed by the adware.

Summary

After all the trouble I had after the installation I will continue using the player, but not wholeheartedly and I would NOT advocate it to new users.

"Reported as Adware by AVG so I abandoned the install"

October 13, 2015

2015-10-13 20:24:14

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Might be able to play FLAC music while stealing all your stuff

Cons

Is stealing all your stuff, or the software author is too dumb to talk to malware organizations to get his/her stuff 'registered'.

Summary

Try it if you want to run the risk...

"Download if you enjoy bloat and malware"

April 14, 2015  |  By MarkOp556

2015-04-14 08:31:14  |  By MarkOp556

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

None, didn't even make it far enough through the install.

Cons

Loads of sketchy bloatware and toolbar add-ons. Immediately after a reboot my Chrome browser was hijacked upon start up and would open around 15 random search tabs, slowing my laptop to a crawl.

Summary

I wasted so much time identifying and removing the malicious PUP files that this download installed. Stay away.

"Requires ".net" junkware, too much bloatware"

January 11, 2015  |  By stitch6x6

2015-01-11 18:42:33  |  By stitch6x6

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Didn't get far enough to find any - the install never really worked.

Cons

Contained no fewer than 7 unwanted bloatware add-ons in the installation. Isn't it pathetic that Yahoo has to PAY people for set Yahoo as a default search? Then, after cvlicking "no" and "decline" to all the bloatware they tried to sneak in, the FLAC player refused to work in my Windows 7 system. It wants me to install a new ".net" framework, which would probably kill my poor 4 year old computer.

Summary

This download was a total waste of time.

"Too many additional programs"

April 13, 2014  |  By HRHuffinpuff

2014-04-13 08:12:11  |  By HRHuffinpuff

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

The flac player works well. It's simple and easy to use.

Cons

There were about 7 additional program downloads added to this flac player. 3 were easy to uninstall but the rest were a real pain.

Summary

Good flac player but beware the extra programs.

"Installs adware"

December 29, 2013  |  By hdelezen

2013-12-29 16:30:15  |  By hdelezen

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

seems to work ok as a flac player

Cons

Even though I did the custom install and made sure not to install any of the crap that came with it and declined all of their "offers" this still installed ShowPass on my computer.
The UI is not very user friendly

Summary

Don't install this crap!
