Generally speaking, it is almost impossible to view animations, graphics, movies, and videos without first installing Macromedia's Flash program. Well, if you weren't aware, an upgrade to Macromedia's Flash Program is Flash Movie Player. This Flash Video (FLV) program is a free stand-alone program for Shockwave Flash animations. It aims to broaden the abilities of the Macromedia Flash Player plugin. The ability to play Flash files is essential in light of the rapid growth of video sharing programs, such as Youtube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Vevo, Flickr, and more. Additional features permit users to rewind and fast-forward though Flash-formatted movies. Flash Movie Player lends great support to Adobe Shockwave Flash (SWF) files and executable binary file (EXE) formats.

Users can watch videos and movies in default mode, theater mode, or full-screen mode, as well as specify their viewing preferences with this FLV’s ability to create playlists. It contains a multilingual interface with support for 40 languages. User friendly, this program does not call for any special computer skills to operate it. There is no hassle or bother--it looks, acts, and feels like the default Windows Media Player.

Moreover, there are some more great aspects of Flash Movie Player in comparison to other video and movie players. For example, it can set itself as the default Windows screen saver. Not only do users have more control over the viewing capabilities, but this FLV also permits users to create screenshots. The program's simple set of controls, drop and drag feature, and ability to work with slower computer systems enhance a viewer’s experience.
