Windows users can finally download and enjoy the functionality of Flash player on Windows. Earlier versions of Windows platform used to support only Windows Media Player, which used to play back only text-based files. The problem with this is that Flash movies are bit long due to the compression process. Moreover, Windows Media Player was limited in terms of its features as it could only be played back using WMM. Moreover, Windows Media Player had problems playing multimedia files such as FLV, Movie library, and MP3 audio files.

There are other players that aren't free and you have to purchase the full version to enjoy all its features. The best solution for those who use Windows is the free flash player from Windows Store which can be downloaded straight to your computer.
