nFLVPlayer plays Flash Video (tm) format also known as .flv.
This format provides the best available compression out there through
the VP6 codec. At this time this is the best video format for online
video playback ... but it lacks support in other means of ussage. A
while ago I had to develop an online video system that needed to play
video in this format and I found out there was no decent standalone
player to try my video's quality/size in various setups ... so I worte
this one. nFLVPlayer can also be used to play videos from most large
online sources (like GoogleVideo) providing you get the proper URL's.
This player offers common video player functionality controls. As an
addition there is an OSD display, Smoothing function, and most recently
accessed files/URL's list.
Since version 1.1+ nFLVPlayer offers fullscreen playback and picture
adjustment filters: brightness, contrast, saturation and hue.
You need a flash plugin installed on your system in order for this
player to work. The oldest flash version that nFLVPlayer supports is
Flash 7 which imposes some limitations and may not play all possible
videos because it lags codecs for the newest. I recommend installing
flash 9 as it has quite alot of improvements in performance.
Note that FlashVideo is generally very CPU consumming so heavy bitrate
video might need faster CPU accordingly.
