Useful FLV Player Application

June 6th, 2007 · 2 Comments

One of the most frustrating things working with flv files is that you have to upload it to a server and then put the code on a webpage and upload it just to preview it. At least that is what I have been doing for quite some time until I read an article in the March edition of Mac | Life. Automagic Software has a freeware program called flvThing which plays Macromedia Flash Video files otherwise known as FLV files. This is a stand alone application in which you can now watch any flv file on your desktop. Finally, very cool. Thanks Automagic Software, great product.

    Riva has been offering a free FLV player for a while. It’s compact and has low minimum system requirements. They also offer a free 30 day trial of their low cost encoder. Check them out at…

    On2’s Flix exporter also comes with a stand-alone player that works quite well. Just download the sample encoder, which watermarks the image, and install the package. The player is included, and you can just delete the encoder later or upgrade it to full functionality.
