Friday Freebie - Play Your Flash Movies Anywhere, Anytime

Wow, deja vu. The double feature week continues right now with another Freebie to clog up your hard drive. And, because everyone loves themes, today's Freebies are related. We just looked at a way to play your Flash games from your PC, but what about your Flash movies? You know, all those clips on YouTube, Google Video, and those other sites you don't tell your girlfriend about? We've got you covered there as well:

FLV Player is a dedicated program for playing Flash movies (flv files) directly from your hard drive. No longer do you have to bookmark pages - just download the movie or grab it from your temp directory, and with this software installed, you can play it anytime you want, no internet access required.

Unlike the last program, this one does require installation, but it's quick and easy. This is also a fairly basic app, so you can't arrange fancy playlists or easily navigate through the files (though some fast forwarding and rewinding is possible). For those and even more advanced features, you'll probably have to wait for the official Adobe Media Player, set to be released later this year (we'll cover the program once it's released). But until then, this is an excellent free alternative.

You can grab this program here, and then start watching all those movies you saved but didn't know how to play. Just make sure that no one can see your monitor when you're enjoying those "special" videos.
