Editors' review

Sothink FLV Player for Mac is a convenient program for playing Flash and other FLV files on your computer. Just add the files you want to play through the app's intuitive interface and let the player do the rest.

Pros

Multiple add options: To play videos through this player, you can either add them from your computer or copy and paste a URL directly into the program. All files added appear in a list, and you can access them from there. The list is also collapsible, which serves to maximize viewing space when you're watching a video.

Clean interface: This app's interface presents all options clearly and efficiently. Just tap the file folder icon to bring up a pop-up window into which you can input a file address or URL. Browse your computer or copy and paste the Web address, and your file will be immediately added to the list on the right-hand side of the interface.

Cons

No help: While there is a Help option available from a drop-down menu on the top of the screen, clicking on it linked to a Web page that couldn't be found. The app is straightforward enough, but it would be nice to have at least a brief overview of its features and how to access them.

Delete bugs: Multiple times during testing, we tried to remove files that we'd added. The program never responded, however, and the unwanted files stayed right where they were.

Bottom Line

If you need a good alternative for playing Flash files on your Mac, this app is worth trying out. It's free, so while there are some bugs, you can see if it's a good fit for you without investing anything.

    "Instructions for playing .flvs don't seem to work."

    April 30, 2012   |   By DrLeoMarvin

    Version: Sothink FLV Player 1.0

    Pros

    Easy download.

    Cons

    Although I was able to add several videos to the queue for this player, I couldn't get any of them to play. Not by double-clicking on them in the queue, and not by pressing the "play" button. So I probably missed something, but shouldn't the correct way to proceed be obvious? I had to give it a low rating because it didn't seem to work.
