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.

    "NEW VERSION IS FAKE! The old one worked 5.3 is FAKE"

    October 07, 2013   |   By Phynix_Viking

    Version: FLVPlayer4Free 5.3

    Pros

    The OLD 4.0 version worked amazing. This new one, is fake!

    Cons

    Contains tool bars and forces you to install other programs without asking that later disable the ability to download anything after you uninstall them. DO NOT USE VERSION 5!!!

    Summary

    This needs to be REMOVED from cnet/download and marked as a virus or malware!
