Editors' Review

+

For a piece of freeware in a category that's rife with scams and junk, Free FLV Player stands out as a solid, reasonable program that does what it says, offers a bunch of options in the deal, and does it all without annoying predatory advertising.

The program starts off with eight skins, most of which provide significantly different looks beyond just a new coat of paint. The options menu, which is only right-click accessible, provides hot-key and menu access to several useful choices. These include fixed resizing to double the original size or full-screen viewing, maintaining the aspect ration, smoothing, nearly 20 languages, and rollover hints. It also has a built-in screencapper.

The app is not without its flaws, though. When installing, users must opt out of downloading a video-format converter made by the same publisher, the URL downloader doesn't work with YouTube, and it will only play non-FLV formats like MP4s or ASFs if you're running Windows XP--Vista users only get FLV support. Still, the player is light on resources and generally performs as promised.

"Doesn't play M4V. Needs a codec but this doesn't exist, the link goes nowhere."

February 16, 2008  |  By johnny5015

 |  Version: Free FLV Player 2.4

Cons

It doesn't work. M4V is NOT supported in the download software. The developers offer to provide codecs by download from their help feature, but the link points to a page that doesn't exist. You need to thoroughly test the software this outfit provides. As the saying goes, "If a deal sounds too good to be true it probably is." Software you can actually use for free? I don't think so!
