|FLV player for flash videos|
Another very interesting flash video program that canbe found in this site :
and can be doanloaded from:
This is another ‘standalone’ player that requires just a simple installation. Its installation is the fastest I ever seen making just the copy into the program files directory and associating the flv/wsf file types with it.
Its interface is very nice comparing to the very poor of Wimpy
The program seems good for dragging files into its window . However flash files with different file name , say files that downloaded incomplete from the internet via orbit or any other file manager , once dragged cannot be played
The window is dependent of the video file. Once a file is dragged FLV’s window is resized.
Looking into memory resources , I found that flv player has quite higher memory requirements than Wimpy. A closer look for a basic size goes to 20- 35 % of the CPU (depending on the screen size ) with a steady memory requirements of 16.5 with very slight changes even with window resizing. IN the same case wimpy shoes a level of 3-10 of CPU and ca 5 MB on RAM. ON same instances mplayer occupied 7-17% from CPU and 26 MB RAM
