MixVideoPlayer is a media player that is categorized as potentially unwanted program. It means that this application is malicious or extremely dangerous, but it has some features that shouldn’t be overlooked by security-minded computer users. Thus, if you care about your system’s safety, you should remove MixVideoPlayer from your computer. Needless to say, if you installed MixVideoPlayer willingly and you find the application useful, you can continue utilizing it, but there are a lot of users who have no idea how this program entered their computers, and that is the reason we are writing about it.
Users can download MixVideoPlayer from mixvideoplayer.com. For the most part, this should convince users that MixVideoPlayer is a reliable application, especially as its homepage looks highly sophisticated. It says that this application is “simply the best way to create personalized playlist using your favorite videos.” MixVideoPlayer allows you to make a playlist from the videos on YouTube or your hard drive. Mixing them all you can create “the ultimate media playlist in no time.” However, the problem is that the official homepage is not the only distribution source, and this application might enter your computer in other ways. This is exactly why some users are confused about MixVideoPlayer.
According to our research, MixVideoPlayer is a direct clone of MagnoPlayer, which, in its own right, is similar to NewPlayer and FastPlayer. All these applications have the same publisher: SoftForce LLC. They also are considered potentially unwanted applications as they exhibit particular behavior that is quite worrying. One of the worrying features is the main distribution methods we have mentioned in the previous paragraph. Like many other potentially unwanted programs, MixVideoPlayer can be bundled with adware and shareware. Such applications are widely available for download from file sharing sites and other unreliable domains. The point is that, most of the time; users do not realize they download more than just one program and, as a result, they get surprised to see MixVideoPlayer pop up on their screen. It is so unexpected that users seldom understand they can easily remove the program via Control Panel.
Some users choose to keep this video player on their computers, but you have to know that MixVideoPlayer supports third-party advertisements. Every hour the program displays a pop-up with a video-stripe advertisement. It wouldn’t be much of a deal if these advertisements were to be trusted, but the problem is that MixVideoPlayer doesn’t check whether the content in its ads is reliable. If the ads get hijacked by cyber criminals, the video player might inadvertently expose you to malicious sites and infections.
Therefore, you should delete MixVideoPlayer right now and invest in a licensed antispyware tool. You need to rely on a powerful computer security application to protect your system from similar issues in the future.
