4. When I enter full screen-mode, I cannot go back to normal mode! - This seems to be a problem that is related to mProjector, the tool I use to create FLV Player with. other symptoms are (very) choppy video and/or stuttering audio. If this new version of FLV Player is giving you troubles, you can try reverting to the previous version. I have notified Screentime, the creator of mProjector (the tool I use to convert my Flash file into a Windows standalone executable) of this issue, I hope they are able to fix this soon!
You can also try the following fix, posted by one of my blog visitors:
1 - Close FLV Player.
2 - Find the executable file FLVPLAYER.EXE (should be in C:\Program Files\FLVPlayer) and right click on it.
3 - Select PROPERTIES, COMPATIBLITY, and check Run this program in compatibility mode.
4 - Then choose WINDOWS 2000.
5 - Start FLV Player.
5. Is there a Mac version of FLV Player available? - No, for Mac users I highly recommend the excellent free Quicktime component Perian . Perian allows you to play FLV files (amongst other formats) within the Quicktime player on your Mac.

Changelog (as of version 2.0.25)
