"Full of Adware/Malware if you run the current installer"

September 12, 2015  |  By Matt909123

2015-09-12 07:14:57  |  By Matt909123

 |  Version: Free FLV Player 1.0

Pros

Looked like it should have been a good application

Cons

Unable to complete the installation as I didn't want to install all the Adware and Malware that appeared to be packaged with the installer files. Not the installer downloads other installers. If you don't take notice of the unwanted software packaged with the flv player it probably works ok. Note the extra software included in the installer process is supposed to be something you can de-select, but I found today the installer process still tries to pull down the unwanted software after you have indicated you don't want it. Defective installer also locks up, it does not necessarily abort it's installation if you decide to cancel.

Summary

Unreliable installer. Installs unwanted components. Ignores user requests to skip unwanted content. Installer forcibly tries to dump malware onto your system. Breaks some systems in the process of installing or canceling installers progress.
Aborted installs require tools to clean out the partly paused installer files.

"BEWARE! LOADED WITH MALWARE - TROJAN JUNK"

July 31, 2015  |  By Gallo Pazzesco

2015-07-31 12:52:10  |  By Gallo Pazzesco

 |  Version: Free FLV Player 1.0

Pros

Nothing, not a thing.

Cons

Loaded with malware, trojan horses. I've counted six so far.

Summary

Downloaded the program - opened it, it immediately told me there was a much newer version and I needed to update - which I did. Unzipped the update and it has been a tragic experience since. Three days late I am still trying to rid myself of all the malware using every anti-malware program available and, in the meantime, every FLV file I had has evidently been corrupted along with two other versions of well known FLV players I already had installed. RUN, DON'T WALK, AWAY FROM THIS PROGRAM! CNET - why is this even allowed on Download.com?

"CAUTION! Fraudulently Loaded With Adware/malware"

April 29, 2015  |  By ganerd

2015-04-29 18:49:15  |  By ganerd

 |  Version: Free FLV Player 1.0

Pros

Not one SINGLE one!
SADLY EVERY SINGLE ONE of 'CONVERT AUDIO FREE' products are that way!!

Cons

Fraudulently ADVERTISED as FREE yet nothing but ONLY adware!
Fraudulently does NOT let you know from the website it is only 95% adware.
Fraudulent! Even if you carefully disable all allowable adware options you are still FLOODED with ads. Had to down load the 'Autorun.exe' utility from Microsoft, to git rid of it.
Fraudulently tried to change your start page, tried to change the default search-engine, and actually installs swiffsearch ? one of the WORSE malware/adware around.
Fraudulently PURCHASES ANY possible positive comments on here!
More ads than even Firefox Ad-blocker Plus could not handle them ? however
PLEASE NOTE: AdBlocker Plus was able to be modified to block all. HINT, HINT!

Summary

CERTAINLY not worth the cleanup hassle!

A person or company is ONLY as good as their word. SO, if they will lie about ONE thing they will lie about ANYTHING! That leaves me wondering just WHAT damage, spy-ware or virus have they left in my system?

ABSOLUTELY cannot understand how CNET could rate these so height!! Reviews must now be bought off :(

"good enough... but do you really want another player?"

November 18, 2014  |  By carlos.ray.10420

2014-11-18 04:48:08  |  By carlos.ray.10420

 |  Version: Free FLV Player 1.0

Pros

This is an adequate program, and it plays FLV files well enough.

Cons

However most users are looking for a way to playback FLV and other files from the Media Player they already have. MPC-HD (MediaPlayerClassicHomeCinema) project, and VideoLan (VLC) are another excellent replacements that will play almost anything including damaged files, and both MPC and VLC are free, and ad-free.

Summary

If you're looking for a clean solution to playing files WITHIN Windows Media Player, you should try either Klite or CCCP (Combined Community Codec Pack) They will give you all the necessary codecs, and include the MPC player.

Install the pack then,
[Windows <7] in File Explorer right-click-openwith a .FLV and choose WindowsMediaPlayer as the default player

[Windows >8] go to PCSettings>Search&Apps>Defaults> choosedefaultappsbyfiletype change FLV to WindowsMediaPlayer

Works flawlessly on WMP v12.0 (Windows 10 x64).
