Here is a list of top 4 free FLV Players for Windows.
Whenever we download any video from video streaming sites, it is generally downloaded in FLV format. Many media players don’t support FLV format. And hence we need Flash players to play them either offline or online.
The below mentioned 4 FLV players let you stream videos and audio efficiently and quite easily. These freeware let you watch any Flash video available on your PC, and some of these even let you open URL of any FLV videos.
Now, many of the popular media players can also play FLV files easily, but if you are looking for a dedicated FLV player, then options below are a good choice.
The First Flash player in the list is AnvSoft Web FLV Player. This freeware lets you play FLV files that are stored on your PC or FLV videos available on the web. It is a lightweight software with a download size of less than 3 MB. It will hardly take 1 minute to install and during installation it doesn’t provide any unnecessary options to install any other software as well.

The next one in the list is Free FLV Player. Free FLV Player has a simple interface and is quite easy to use Flash player. This freeware is also small-sized with a download size of less than 3 MB. One limitation of Free FLV Player is that it lets you play offline FLV videos only i.e. the videos that you have stored in your local system.
You can efficiently play your FLV video with options, like: Volume controller, Increase/Decrease speed of the video, etc. One additional feature of this FLV player is that it lets you convert your FLV video in other four formats: mp3, mp4, 3gp, and avi.

Next Flash player in the list is Moyea FLV Player. This Flash player is quite similar to the above mentioned AnvSoft Web FLV Player except from the fact that it lets you create playlists and lets you add any video in favorites list as well. It also lets you watch FLV videos from your PC or you can even stream web videos by inserting the URL. This freeware is lightweight with a download size of less than 3 MB.

But you can change the display screen from provided options like: Full screen, 100%, 200%, etc. I find Wimpy FLV Player to be quite simple and easy to use. But no playback setting in the software disappointed me a bit. If you are OK with this limitation, then you can give it a try.
All the above mentioned software are easy to use FLV players. I hope you find what you are looking for from this list of FLV players.
