Fireplayer Description

The Fireplayer software by DisplayTime Software Inc. is promoted as 'The Ultimate HD Media Player' as stated on The Fireplayer software is offered to users as a reliable multimedia player and entertainment solution that allows users to stream content from YouTube without the need for a Google account. At first sight, the Fireplayer does not require integration with your browser to provide multimedia content from YouTube, and it appears to work and look similarly to Splash player by Mirillis Ltd. The marketing pitch for Fireplayer reads:

'FirePlayer is the ultimate tool for video enthusiasts. Marvel as HD quality is played directly from YouTube on your desktop, and then view local video content as well--with FirePlayer’s built in hardware acceleration that uses less CPU resources and less battery life!'

However, the official site for the Fireplayer media solution appears incomplete. There are no contact details, a list of the complete features of the program, information on the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. What we discovered is that the Fireplayer program is distributed to users via free software bundles primarily. Additionally, the Fireplayer desktop app transmits data to known advertising servers. Further investigation showed that the Fireplayer is powered by open-source code and it is programmed to gather usage statistics to help advertisers provide tailor-suited ads on connected pages. The Fireplayer is deemed as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP), which may collect data like your Internet browsing history, recent downloads, and record your input on Google for market development purposes. The performance of the Fireplayer does not appear to be superior to its competitors and users may not be satisfied with the HD video renderer employed by Fireplayer. Computer users that have the Fireplayer installed on their system may want to remove it with the help of a reliable anti-spyware instrument. AV desktop applications may detect the installer package for Fireplayer as:
