SWF & FLV Player PRO

SWF & FLV Player PRO ($19.95) is the third product that I have featured on the site, the others being Flash Decompiler Trillix for Mac 3.1 and Flash Optimizer for Mac 2.1

As before if you want to ‘win’ a copy of the application just leave me a comment below.

SWF & FLV Player PRO

Initially, SWF & FLV Player was developed as an alternative to Adobe Flash Player which lacks a lot of useful features and options. Straight after the release we have received a lot of responses with comments, suggestions and recommendations from our customers. These ideas were implemented in new SWF & FLV Player releases, however PRO version meant to be more advanced application and always be a step ahead of standard SWF & FLV Player. Indeed, your proposals are very welcome and vital for the development process. Please, contact our support team to help us bring the best player for Mac OS to you.

One of the main benefits of SWF & FLV Player PRO is its feature that lets you save Flash animation to the hard drive. This is extremely useful if you are viewing online animation and want to save it. Usually, to save Flash movie to the disk you need to find the full URL address to the SWF file and open it in a player or browser or download it separately. Alternatively, you may search through the browser’s cache to find the required file. However, it is only part of the problem: most of the SWF files load other resources such is interface layout, scoreboard (for on-line games), streaming audio/video (on-line presentation, games, etc.) and so on. SWF & FLV Player PRO allows you easily determine whether the loaded Flash animation requires other files and saves all files to the hard disk.

Starting from the version 3.0 the Viewer window of SWF & FLV Player contains a smart toolbar where all advanced features of the Player are presented. However, not all of them are accessible in free version of SWF & FLV Player. While buttons 2 and 3 work in free version of SWF & FLV Player, buttons 3, 4 and 5 are available in PRO version only. Users of SWF & FLV Player PRO can make the application float on top of other windows (3), make screenshot of the current frame (4) and convert the current movie into a series of images (5).

Last but not least, to bring the full enjoyment when viewing Flash animation, SWF & FLV Player PRO lets playback SWF/FLV files in full-screen mode.

SWF & FLV Player

SWF & FLV Player (formerly SWF Movie Player) is a free and smart Flash movie player. It is the only stand-alone application for Mac OS that is able to playback SWF and FLV files with plenty of bonus features. It provides handy movie controls, that let you play, rewind, fast-forward and playback movie files frame-by-frame. Flash animators and FLV movie creators often hide things in single frames. Think you saw something out of the corner of your eye? You probably did. Drag along the playback bar to go frame-by-frame to find out.

SWF & FLV Player will browse any web addresses to discover and save all SWF files it uses. If any SWF file requires external resources (it may open and play other SWF or FLV files, load images, etc) SWF & FLV Player will inform you about it and offer to download all the external resources required as well.

SWF & FLV Player also lets you create and manage playlists – play FLV and SWF files randomly or one by one, repeat one item or the whole playlist, save playlists so you can load your favorite movie collection later. With our SWF & FLV Player you can zoom in the movie to see the specific part of it, fit to current window size or restore to original one. Moreover, you can set playback quality (useful for low-end or heavy-loaded systems), manage Flash security policy, check SWF/FLV file’s comprehensive information and lots more.

SWF & FLV Player PRO version (available for a small fee) delivers yet more functionality to the users: ability to save currently played Flash movie no matter whether it is loaded from web or locally; switch to full-screen viewing mode; capture the current frame of the movie and produce series of screenshots out of your favorite FLV or SWF movie.

Created with the simplicity and resource efficiency in mind, SWF & FLV Player provides absolute control of the playback and lets you manage SWF and FLV movies at your fingertips. Packed with plenty of options, it provides clean and intuitive interface which will suite even the most refined taste.
