@13 Dusty. I bought the FoxReal YouTubeFLV downloader. I must say i never had any regrets of this purchase. Because it does what they promise it should do. Something this program offered here today does not. Maybe you can take a look at the foxreal product. It was a GAOTD not so lang ago. The only thing, and thats why i bought it, was that the goatd had a timer on the number of downloads which their paid version does not have.

This is on the developers site under help.Doesnt help though in correcting error
"Floating point division by zero." error message
This error occurs when FLV file that you are trying to view is encoded with a codec, developed later, than SWF & FLV Player was released last time. This causes an error message.

Playback of FLV files encoded with new codecs will be implemented in future release of SWF & FLV Player for Windows.

I have fould that VLC Media Player (which is free plays FLV files with no problem as well as most other file types (have never tried it on SWF but then never downloaded a SWF file either.) Also Foxreal youtube downloader (free edition) works on most sites as well for downloading flv files.

WOW .. nice program few bugs (Added features in microsoft's case lol) but all in all I like it never cheated so much in flash games :-P

Just one add-on I would love the opportunity to have a screen shot or frame of the flv or swf file in the playlist... FLASH GAME MANAGERS (Cause this could be a excellent one) all miss one thing a decent screenshot to know what the heck your trying to access... with this one feature this program would sell like hot cakes...

P.S: Sign me up to any beta testing this program I am sure can go places...

Mike: #33 - Thanks so much for the information. I tried setting the Adobe Flash Player preferences, but it didn't help. Thanks for the suggestion, anyway. If support doesn't come up with any solutions in the next few days, I'll be asking for my money back.

And here I thought I was doing good by researching beforehand. You never know, huh?

On the "Choose installation type of SWF & FLV Player"

the "Custom instalation" section all refer to "(Powered by Bing)" browser changes, yet the last line which is ALWAYS ACTIVE states:

"By clicking Next you agree that you have read and accepted the start page and search assitant terms and conditions" which points to http://www.zugosearch.com/terms/ which is a "ZUGO" search portal powered by ASK not BING!

All the previously reportted bugs and this mess point a very undisciplined development process and a very premature public launch!

Why do companies try to sell you something that does little and yet there is freeware that can do the same or better? VLC Media Player and your prefered browser can play these video formats. If you want Windows Media Player to play FLVs along with various other formats not supported by Windows Media Player, just install the K-Lite Codec Pack. This is what I know.

While the Description of this progeam sounds appealing (especially the part about being able to go though the movies "Frame-by-Frame")... Due to all the problems reported by almost ALL of the commenters, I believe I'll pass on today's offering.

I'd like to make the suggestion that (in the future) GAOTD "personelle" try out these software programs (at LEAST the one's from new or "unknown" developers) before approving them for the GiveAway. That would help to avoid the frustration that many have experienced today and yesterday.
I know we ALL Appreciate GREATLY what is provided here by the GAOTD Team and 99% (+/-) of the programs ae GREAT!
Thanks again and have a great Day!!!

KMPlayer can play FLV and SWF files, and VideoDownloadHelper addon for Firefox can download web videos (FLV, MP4 etc). So today's GOTD doesn't really make sense, especially after seeing all the comments above.

There is a free version of Eltima SWF & FLV Player. Comparison between free and PRO versions is listed here:
http://www.eltima.com/products/swf-flv-player/

If Eltima offered their "SWF & FLV Toolbox" as a GOTD, I would definitely download and recommend it to everyone, as it allows you to even make screensavers and executables out of SWF or FLV movies/animations (though there are freeware software to do that too).

However, I would sincerely urge the developers to heed to the comments here, and incorporate them into their software. Though that floating-point error seems to be actually a codec problem, I am sure it can be fixed by Eltima. Bing toolbar as default installation is a definite no-no (Softpedia will classify Eltima as adware/spyware if they persist with force-bundling such toolbars!).

I don't understand why all these major software manufacturers try to force toolbars and hijack homepages - very few percentage of people I know actually use these toolbars and many who do, later uninstall them once they realise the privacy and security concerns.

It's possible this might be a pretty good application; however, I can't tell with all the "Floating point division by zero" errors that pop-up every time I start it. And to make matters worse the only way to close the program is to use Task Manger to abort it.

I find it hard to believe that Eltima software would expect us to pay $20.00 US for this none working application. Perhaps the problem is related to Windows 7 64 bit, but there is no warning stating that the product doesn't work on that platform.

I will be uninstalling this program along with the Bing bar it installed.

#5: "don’t like it when developers attempt to download changes or mess with browser settings."

Purely FWIW, that's just "life" nowadays... I pay for cable & still see loads of commercials I'd rather not be bothered with, but those ads make the cable company money, & hopefully that means they don't up my rates. Software publishers get money for advertising other products too, & hopefully that keeps them from charging me more for their software, or in the case of free-ware, helps pay their web hosting & development costs, so they keep giving away free stuff. :-)

* * *

#12: "... I must have been lucky/unlucky enough to pick just swfs/flvs that had used codexs encoded before the last time this program’s software had been updated... "

At 1st I thought the app's age [8/07] meant that it wouldn't handle newer video files, but the Sothink player's not much newer, & indeed SWF & FLV Player Pro is just like the Sothink player, using the Flash Player you already have installed for viewing on-line Flash &/or Shockwave.

FWIW, since you bought SWF & FLV Player Pro you might want to try setting your Adobe Flash Player preferences to see if that helps... visit a web page with Flash, then right click it. AFAIK those preferences are global to Windows.

"... I read that this particular build was “compiled” on the 19th of October, 2010, but I can’t find any explanation of what that means..."

Simplified, when an app's compiled all those lines of code are put together into the .exe file that you'll run. When a program's compiled at a later date than the original, it's implied that something is changed because why would you bother otherwise? The date it was compiled, build numbers, & shown file dates may be useful as versioning control or for comparison -- a newer file *may* have newer stuff inside, & that *may* include maybe a fix or two. That said, the dates & times shown in Windows' Explorer for a file are easily edited, & can mean different things, e.g. long ago it was common to edit those attributes to easily denote the version for the developers.

Today's GOTD, SWF & FLV Player Pro wouldn't work for me on a few ordinary network news sites -- wouldn't download & wouldn't play the .flv video I downloaded from those sites using the free Nirsoft Video Cache View [you can get it at videohelp.com &/or nirsoft.net]. I use VLC [videohelp.com &/or videolan.org] as my all-around player, but when a couple of those .flv video files would play but stall after a few seconds, I checked a few other players I had, & then took a look on-line at videohelp.com & using Google. I had the Sothink FLV Player [I *Think* a GOTD from 2009], & it did very well -- checking for a newer version I found it's free... it's the same version with a newer file date [3/10] at http://goo.gl/IBRCk . [Note that install offered to add the Ask toolbar, & that the default program folder is in Common Files.] I also found FLV Player [http://goo.gl/N4NvE & videohelp.com & CNET], which is more recent, but just didn't play the flv I was testing quite as well as Sothink's app -- your mileage may of course vary. [Note that this install offers to add extra software too].

SWF & FLV Player Pro includes a Flash video downloader -- File menu -> "Download online Flash movies (beta)" -- with a drop-down text box where you paste the url, & a Browse button next to it that's supposed to find & list any Flash video on that page. The app itself opens into 3 windows: the main Player, a Playlist window, & playback controls [i.e. play, pause etc.]. The GOTD registration info is entered [copy/paste] through the Help menu. Setup adds the program's folder [9 files, 2 folders, ~4 MB], with a 2nd folder [Eltima Software] added to User\ Application or App Data\ for storing configuration info. I recorded 120 new registry entries. Going to the SWF & FLV Player site I found a few FAQs in their knowledgebase... long story short there doesn't seem to be anything you can do about it when the player won't work, but if you have problems with the playlist end of things you might try going to the File menu -> Preferences, which will bring up a small dialog with a few checkboxes & a slider on the Playlist tab that *might* help. Otherwise the app itself is slightly older [8/2007], so IMHO you'll not likely see any updates.

I like being able to play stored/saved flv video files when it can save me the trouble of converting them to something else -- why go to the trouble of converting the video when I'll delete it as soon as I show it to someone? I do convert flv video that I'm going to keep, & of course you usually have to convert if you want to play it on a hand-held, so OTOH an flv player isn't something I use all that often. Judging from what I saw looking for alternatives this morning, I'd *guess* many (most?) folks are the same way -- there'd be more full featured players [like SWF & FLV Player Pro ] otherwise. Based on that, if you want a easy to use flv player that can handle playlists, you might want to check out SWF & FLV Player Pro because there just aren't loads of alternatives [VLC can do playlists, but it does so much it's not as easy]. If you're just after a flv player I like Sothink's more.

Only tested on existing .flv files. As indicated by many of the above comments this program fails to work properly. I cannot determine its usefulness because of the “floating point division by zero” error which occurs every time. I put 10 existing .flv files in the playlist and immediately got the divide by zero error and then the flvs started to play but none of them finished. After playing a little bit of one .flv the programme then skips to the next .flv, and so on. It is good that one can try such a programme without having to purchase it first. Those who paid money and get the results I got should have no problem in getting their money back!

thanks GOTD-
I appreciate being able to try and learn about so many different types of software here from your website -
I'll bet it is tough sometimes, getting developers to release a selection of their software for your evergrowing community.
seems like a total win-win, we the consumers get to see some great 'hits, and some misses', hopefully the developers get some great input from some of the reviews- :)
(yea, i've noticed 'some' of the reviews in the last year I have followed ya have been just vicious & not at all helpful to a dev team who wants some advanced testing LOL )

Great possibilities and good documentation. As it stands, bugs have to be worked out. I downloaded and installed it in the hopes the developer will fix the current problems because this software has LOTS of potential. Meanwhile my free GOTD copy will remain unused on my computer waiting for the fix.

I tried this program just to see if it could be as bad as the reviews say it is. It is! I had every problem the other reviewers had. The test file I used played in Irfanview, AlShow, Vlc Media Player and Windows Media Player.

The program automatically associates .flv and .swf files with itself but even after removing those associations in other programs and running this program in compatibility mode with XP I had the same problems on my Vista 32 machine.

Terrible software!

I'm not going to bother with today's offering (due to the many comments of errors during playback). I am, however, going to tell users of another free FLV/SW player.

If you visit http://www.softwareclub.ws/flv.html and select Multimedia from the left hand menu, you can download the SC FLV Player.

Features:
* Play FLV files
* Play swf files
* Easy shortcut keys
* Full screen mode (Resizable window)
* Can be Associated with flv files

Used it on a couple of flv files with mixed feelings.
Got errors with some (as comments above).
But then it could play a file that VLC media player didn't play correctly.
So it helped, but at the moment I can only used it as a backup player for the scarce few files that VLC can't play.

And no problem with the BING toolbar install - shouldn't just everybody READ what they are clicking on and approving? Don't see any problem with that.

Go to help file and enter reg code and name (again ) until you get a box come up saying restart the prog. Otherwise you think it is registered and it isnt. When you restart the pro it comes up as the Pro version. Confusing initially as it says it is the freeware version.

Also after playing a file when you next reopen the prog, it auto plays your last flash file without you telling it, and the stop or pause function does not stop it/ work!

Thanks Eltima Software & GOTD for this handy and useful software.
I find this program will be great for previewing swf files that I have made before publishing them to my site. Just double click the swf file Icon and the player opens up and auto plays the file. Before I would Have to import the swf file to the web site software then preview in my browser, this software will save those extra steps.
The only thing I did not like was the Bing toolbar trying to install itself , but that was taken care of with a simple click before finishing installation.Choose custom install to opt out of the Bing toolbar.

As Chad#2 States,"nor am I crazy about the interface with the separate window for play, pause controls and it showing the playlists.." This is a VERY good point. The interface should be one piece not 3. that feature can and will get a bit annoying.

Thanks GOTD & Eltima software, this is a keeper :)

The program installed ok with the ID and registration code which resulted in a "thank you" for upgrading to the Pro version being displayed inside the main menu window. That's about the extent of the good things I've found on installation and use. I was able to input URL's with FLV files, but unable to download any: I always got some script error. I was unable to play any online files with the program: again, some script error. On attempting to play files already downloaded, they would *flash* in the window, then the window would resort to the "thank you..." image. This occured with numerous video clips and video movies downloaded over time from various websites. I DID manage to get one to play, after *flashing on and off* a dozen or so times. Had I actually PAID for this program and gotten these results, I'd be chewing nails. As it is, I've discovered one potentially useful program to avoid in the future. As someone else already commented, I'll be looking for any suggested alternative 'free' programs.

Maybe it's because I haven't used any other FLV player, but I kind of like this one. During installation it clearly asks up front if you want the Bing tool-bar, so it's not deceptive or trying to "trick" you. I would think most people here would be used to applications asking this.
I like the separate windows for controls and playlist. They can be positioned where you want them or close them independently. I also like the built-in FLV downloader (beta) though I haven't had much time to play with it. I think it has a decent interface and is pretty intuitive.
It installed fine, and upgraded to the "Pro" version with the included key. I have a 3 year old C2D laptop with 4 GB RAM running Windows 7 x64 and the application runs smooth.

Confirming @2 Chad's finding of "unspecified error" on loading flv files. Program can be closed using sustained Alt-F4 or Task Manager. With a bug like that it's uninstalled again pronto.

Repeat that warning: DO NOT CHOOSE standard instal. Read carefully: the Bing toolbar will be installed and your homepage and search engine hijacked. If you wish to instal then use custom instal and uncheck these items.

It's a breach of etiquette to instal these by default. It would also be nice if they asked first before claiming their app as the default for swf and flv.

A nice player, but this does nothing my computer can't already do.

As the first commenter said, make sure to use the custom installation mode and disable the Bing toolbar. I really hate programs that "bundle" crapware with their products. (Remember how annoying toolbars were in the early 00's?)

The program itself runs good on my not so new Win7 laptop. A decent, straight forward control setup. If you've used any type of media player before, you'll know how to use this one.

But thanks to "Klite" codec pack + WMP + Download Helper on Firefox, I can already do everything this program does. But my way may not be for everyone, and this is a good alternative. Especially for the newbies on the computer or those who aren't very techie.

I purchased this program just last week, after researching several swf & flv players/screen capture programs. I thought it would be a good fit for what I needed. Unfortunately, while researching the trial before buying it, I must have been lucky/unlucky enough to pick just swfs/flvs that had used codexs encoded before the last time this program's software had been updated.

However, after purchasing SWF & FLV Player Pro, I began to get the "floating point division by zero" error that Chad (@ comment #2) has already mentioned. According to the program's Knowledge Base, if you play flvs with codex which were endcoded since they last updated their program, you will get the "floating point division by zero error" message.

In researching their site, I read that this particular build was "compiled" on the 19th of October, 2010, but I can't find any explanation of what that means, because the change log says that the most recent changes were made when the program was totally rebuilt on August 22, 2007. Am I missing something here? Or am I correct in my assumption that anything that uses a codex that's been released since 2007 is not going to work in this program?

I'm also having the problem with popup messages that are "nonstop stacking on top of each other," which is another problem encountered by Chad. Like him, I have to bring up the Task Manager to terminate the program after this happens. I sent a message to Support last week, but they have not yet resolved the issue. They asked me for a copy of one of the files causing the problems, which I sent, but I haven't had any response since then.

To be fair, they've only had two days to research the problem since I sent the file to them on Thursday of this week, but I'm not very encouraged by what I've discovered so far. I thought I'd done my homework and found a program that suited my needs, but so far I've had nothing but disappointments since I purchased SWF & FLV Player Pro.

First off be sure not only to use the custom settings but also after the first launch of the program go to help/add register key info
this turns the free version into the full version.

Now i do not particularly like the many opened windows, is there a way to dock them together, perhaps you should add that feature.
Also every time i load the files in the play list and go to play one i select, it sometimes plays them sometimes not, and they are all FLV files.I do not know what the deal is with that.
Maybe it's just picky?
I like the interface setup design other than the many windows it launches.

If you could explain why it opens some FLV's and not some others this would help a lot.

Thanks

I am using Windows XP and have experienced the same situation as #2 with the error messages. The first time I tried adding/playing a handful of files in the playlist there were so many error messages that my computer crashed and rebooted. None of my FLV files would play in their entirety or would not play at all. The same files play fine with Any FLV Player (free). Trying to play a single file took a long time to load only to find out the file does not play. Too bad. From the features list of the software descrition it sounded like a nice program.

Didn't like the interface, looked very amaturish and the program itself is full of bugs it couldn't open many of the swf files I tried on it or threw up floating point errors. Really glad I wasn't stupid enough to actually buy this or I would have been demanding a refund. I'd score it 1/10. There is better freeware out there that do the same job better.

Yes, confusion is a lot.
It is advertised as Pro version, but after entering
registration code, what you ultimately get is
the free version.

Eltima Software staff, please do come and rectify this immediately!!

For those living outside the USA, yes, be careful that you untick the Bing toolbar items under 'Custom installation' if you don't want the bar.

Not too impressive, on many local flv files I've tried it gives me multiple popup windows saying floating point division by zero error. Some videos the popup messages are nonstop stacking on top of each other forcing me to bring up Task Manager to terminate it.
On the plus side it seems to have some interesting extra features for saving video caps, but I'm not interested in that right now just wanted a fast full screen flv player and this isn't reliable enough nor am I crazy about the interface with the separate window for play, pause controls and it showing the playlists..
I'm looking forward to seeing comments on some of the best other options out there.

Beware of the 'Bing' toolbar installation folks! When prompted, go to 'custom installation' and uncheck the boxes....
