Free FLV Player
As the name of this program suggests, Free FLV Player lets you play video files with the FLV format.
The interface of the simple application is plain and easy to work with. FLV videos can be imported by using either the file browser or the "drag and drop" method.
So, you can use basic media player functions, such as pause and stop, navigate back and forth within the video, adjust the volume, as well as go forward or backward.
In addition, Free FLV Player lets you convert FLV videos to other extensions - 3GP, MP4, AVI and MP3.
The video player takes up a moderate amount of system resources, has a very good response time and didn't freeze or crash during our tests. On the other hand, Free FLV Player comes with plenty of downsides. Firstly, there is no help file available.
Secondly, you cannot switch to full screen mode or create a playlist. Also, Free FLV Player recognizes all file formats, although it can only read FLVs, so it can be troublesome to locate a FLV file in a directory filled with random video formats.
On top of that, the converter is very slow. The time it needs to complete a task equals the time length of the respective video. Plus, the conversion process doesn't come with a "cancel" button and the tool failed to convert sound in case of a FLV-to-AVI conversion. We strongly recommend you look for a more powerful tool than Free FLV Player.
