FLV Player Addon

What is FLV Player Addon?

FLV Player Addon is an ad-supported (also known as adware) web browser plugin that displays advertisements such as coupon ads in the browser that are displayed on web pages that are not associated with the plugin or would not otherwise appear. When the plugin recognizes that the end user has visited a partner site it will show all available offers for that partner in a slider visible in the top right hand portion of the browser. Clicking on any of the offers within the slider will result in a redirect that will drop affiliate cookies on to the end user computer and resolve the end user to the advertiser page/offer. Additionally, the plugin will communicate with its remote server to track and report browsing habits that include URLs visited, domains accessed, advertisements displayed and clicked on as well as information about the user's location and PC details.

Overview

The most used version is 1.34.7.1, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up (this is typically done to avoid any UAC prompts). It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. The main program executable is utils.exe. Typically most users end up uninstalling this just after a few days. The software installer includes 43 files and is usually about 11.94 MB (12,516,061 bytes). FLV Player Addon-updater.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.

The program is built using the Crossrider framework, a cross browser monetization platform used to deploy a toolbar and extension for modern web browsers with monetization features including browser search and homepage redirection, contextual coupons and in-line text advertising. Crossrider extensions include background processes to monitor, update and automatically download new features/code without direct user interaction.
