The FLV Media Player is an alternative media player that most people use to play videos on their computers. This program is popular among people who prefer to download videos from the Internet and play them on their computers. The player can be used in place of the stock media player on the computer, and there are times when videos will only play with the FLV Media Player.

What Are The Pros?

  • The FLV Media Player is a much more functional version of a stock video player. You can do more with this player than you can with the player that came with your computer.
  • You can play videos that are problematic in other players.
  • The FLV Media Player can be set as your default media player.
  • The FLV Media Player is not a large program. It will not take up too much memory on your computer.
  • The FLV Media Player can become the player that you use to create mash-ups. You can play two songs at once and take a recording of them together for your own mash-up.

What Are The Cons?

  • The FLV Media Player is not your stock media player. This can be a problem when you are trying to play videos on this player and not your stock media player. There are times when the computer will keep defaulting to your stock player.
  • The Media Player will run in the background at the same time as other audio and video players. You must make sure it is off if you do not want it to start playing again. The pause function only lasts so long.
  • The FLV Media Player is not compatible with all videos. There are videos and music that you will not be able to play with this player.

Adding another media player to your computer can be helpful if you do not prefer your stock media player. However, you need to remember that this media player will not solve all your problems as soon as you download it.
