Wimpy FLV Player is a straightforward app that enables you to watch your favorite FLV and SWF files from your desktop. You can make good use of this application when it comes to playing videos downloaded from websites such as YouTube or GoogleVideo.

This app comes with an intuitive and customizable interface so any user would be able to handle it and change its appearance with ease. You can watch your FLV and SWF videos windowed or in fullscreen mode and mute the sound if necessary.

The program brings some important disadvantages: you can't attach subtitles to your movies, adjust the sound volume according to your needs, and watch videos from the Internet (nothing happens after I add the URL link and click the OK button).

To sum things up, Wimpy FLV Player is a simple to use program that lets you play FLV and SWF files. However, taking into consideration the aforementioned flaws, you can't find more capable solutions for watching FLV and SWF files, and these solutions can be apps that don't necessarily come with a price tag.
