Great plugin, great support
By , for WP 4.5

My WordPress theme was not working well with this plugin and the support went there and fix it for me really quick, great plugin, I am very happy. Thank you

Solid plugin
By ,

The plugin is truly rich with features which is why I purchased to begin with. It's also clear to see that it's well built from a coding standpoint. While I ended up not being able to use it for my site due to various reasons, the developer was willing to offer a partial refund for the unused license, which I appreciate. If you have a project that needs to utilize complex but powerful 3rd party video hosts such as S3, this plugin should effectively meet your needs.

Great Plugin!

I've been using this plugin for over a year now and it's really the best that I have found for video. So many ways you can customize the videos and all the features that no other video play has. Thanks for making the best wordpress video plugin!

Best video player plugin on WordPress by far
By , for WP 4.4.2

The FV Flowplayer Video Player is the best video player plugin on WordPress by far. It has so many great features and it's working perfect for my guitar lesson business. I'd highly recommend the FV Player Pro version. Compatible and responsive player and great customer support. Thanks!

Finally I can secure my S3 video files. GREAT PLUGIN!
By , for WP 4.4.2

Excellent plugin allows me to enter my S3 access keys and secure my S3 videos from being downloaded and/or played on other websites. (There are a few things you will have to do in your S3 account but this plugin was the missing link that made it all work.)

Great Plugin
By , for WP 4.4.2

This plugin was easy to setup and impletment. The shortcode is straightforward to use and the Amazon S3 integration works perfectly. I highly recommend it. My hope is that the good folks at Foliovision make an audio player version of this great plugin.

Easy and Quick

One word summation ... brilliant.

Unclear functionality and unclear refund policy
By , for WP 4.3.1

I wrote a complete post about that (in Italian) here: [ Redacted, please do not post links in reviews ]
I was searching for a video player for WordPress and before to buy the very expensive FV Flowplayer I wrote some e-mail to Foliovision (the team that programmed the video player). Mr. Alec treated me in a very rude way because, beeing VERY INTERESTED in the plugin and wishing to buy it (also if the pro version is very expensve) I wrote some e-mail asking all I needed to know to make an informed purchase.
His answers were disconcerting. So, dsconcerted, I asked if they have a refund policy and I received the following answer: "(...)to be honest I don't like your communication style. You are free to buy the plugin but in your particular case, there is a no refunds policy."
Baffled from that answer, I wrote that:

"So, to be completely sure to have understood your message:
1. I am interested in your plugin.
2. You don't like my communication style and...
3. ...because of my communication style I will not have right to a refund"

And here you are the following answer: "(...)You know the conditions of sale now. There will be no refund in your case under any circumstances."
In the last email Mr. Alec offended me a little bit more and we stopped our email conversation.

So, I can't know if the PRO plugin works, but I am sure that if a company can decide to not have a REFUND POLICY for customers that ask for information, I am not sure that this plugin is worth paying 75 EUR without have the possibility to be sure that the pro version works for my needs and without a fair, clear refund policy.

Terrible Experience
By , for WP 4.3

I not only purchased the product, I purchased the installation support. Over 20 emails over 2 weeks, and the product still does not work.

I've uninstalled it and moved on to a different product.

I would never recommend using this product.
