As the name of this software application implies, F4V Player allows you to load Flash Video files with the F4V format. But the tool also supports FLV.
The interface of the program is based on a standard window and an uncomplicated layout. Loading a video file can be done with the help of the file browser only, since the 'drag and drop' function is not supported. Unfortunately, you cannot import multiple items at a same time, in order to create a playlist.
So, you can use some basic media player functions, such as pause and stop, switch to full screen mode, as well as go forward or backward a few frames.
The simple-to-use tool runs on a low-to-moderate amount of CPU and system memory, supports keyboard shortcuts, has a good response time and didn't freeze, crash or pop up error dialogs during our evaluation. There is no help file available but that's because F4V Player's features may be seamlessly figured out.
On the downside, F4V Player lacks some essential tools. For example, you cannot use a slider to navigate back and forth within the clip, jump to a specific frame, view video duration, adjust the volume or enable loop mode. Plus, you cannot configure program settings, such as making F4V Player minimize to the system tray or exit after the playback.
