Video Player Packages

What is Video Player Packages?

The software uses the Install Core Click run software which is an installer which bundles legitimate applications with offers for additional third party applications that may be unwanted by the user. Such third party applications are typically installed onto users’ computers by default, but may include an option to ‘opt-out’ during or after the installation process.

The 'Packages' program is simply a wrapper/manager around the bundled software it installed during setup. By running the uninstaller option, the program will show the various bundled programs such as DealPly and allow the user to remove it. Besides this, the software servers no other purpose. To fully remove the 'Packages' program you must select the checkbox at the bottom of the screen to (Add/Remove from Windows).

By using somewhat unethical marketing tactics on various ad networks, the software is distributed by companies such as ClickRunSoftware (shares same address as ironSource in Tel-Aviv) through the website extrimvideoplayer.com.
