    Adobe Media Player has been my media player of choice for watching their product videos, tutorials and occassionaly my FLV's. Its name could be misleading as it is not designed to be a general media player but a player targeting creative professionals. It is also a small cross-platform media player for its UI. Any claims about bloated probably have not done any objective research or even known anything in terms of that level of programming. Adobe Media Player is able to work responsively on my 1.6Ghz laptop with jazzy UI animations, and flawless content playback, something that Windows Media Player or Quicktime could not even come close.

    It's kinda late for Adobe to jump into the media player competition. Overall, it's a good player but a bit bloated.

    For Mac users, it's a must. But for Windows users, better use your current favorite player with a FLV DirectShow filter.

    I can see its future matured version already. It would be like Windows Media Player. Heavy and bloated, and probably even more.

    Didn't care for it, too much content that just didn't appeal to me.
    It's a fine player, just not my thing.

    On my third--and final-- use of trying this product out, I found the first video to be or horrendous quality, previewed with a 30 second commercial I put on mute.

    The second video wouldn't play.

    I'm done. 3 strikes, you are out, adobe.

    I'd like to try it, but it won't install. Maybe others have had the same problem. I finally got it installed after going to the support page and installing air runtime.

    The video quality was very good, but the content was next to awful. The search funtion worked poorly. For example: Jon Stewart became Ryan Stewart and so on.

    Lastly, I don't who wants to spend their time watching 5 minute clips of not so great stuff. But, I'm sure there are plenty of folks who do just that. Anyway, it's officially uninstalled.
