Why do I need FLV Player?

For web videos firstly, usually you get them played in a narrow-framed web pane, which is not quite eye-friendly actually. Plus with frequent video buffer, you are probably driven to mad! If change mind to import the flv URL in the flv Player, it’s going to be the very opposite!
