If you are looking for the perfect video player that works with a .FLV extension, look no further than the FLV Player. This compact player will play those .FLV files with ease. This format has become increasingly popular for videos across the net, so using a player made especially for the format is handy. One flaw that this basic player has is that it cannot work with any other file extensions except its namesake. It has simple to handle controls such as a drag and drop feature and the standard pause, fast forward, and slow down options.
As with most video players, FLV Player can be viewed full screen and works with high definition quality videos. On a whole, this player is effective for those that want to watch movies, game play videos, or any other form of media without too many options to choose from. Its basic functions make it great for first time video player users and its one of the fastest FLV players the internet has to offer.
The player has recently been slightly upgraded to add a video only mode. This mode will only show the video playing with the streaming tool bar. Volume control is done with the up and down arrow keys on the keyboard in this mode. The only disadvantages to the FLV Player is that it only works with that extension. It is also one of the simplest video players out there. Other than those two facts, the player is fast and smooth and perfect for simple video viewing.
