What Is MixVideoPlayer and Why Is It a PUP?

MixVideoPlayer is an application through which you can use the content from YouTube, your hard drive and streaming video websites in order to create the “ultimate” media playlist.
According to its creators, “Why spend all day looking for videos, bookmarking them, saving them to your hard drive and playing them when you could use MixVideoPlayer? The program offers an excellent solution if you want to create long playlists of videos from a variety of sources. For instance, you could easily add content from Youtube, Vimeo and Dailymotion and then add videos from your hard drive. MixVideoPlayer can stream content from all kinds of locations without glitches and seamlessly.”
MixVideoPlayer seems to be legit and quite useful for melo maniacs indeed. Despite its benefits, however, malware experts do find some pitfalls such as:MixVideo

  • MixVideoPlayer tends to display pop-up ads that might appear annoying to you
  • Some of the pop-up ads may redirect you to potentially corrupted web pages that will further infect your system when you click them
  • MixVideoPlayer may recommend you to install additional questionable applications that could slow down and even harm your system
  • MixVideoPlayer may sometimes enter your system uninvited
  • MixVideoPlayer may alter your browser settings and search results

How Does MixVideoPlayer Enter Your PC?

You can install MixVideoPlayer by visiting its official website. It may, however, enter your system bundled with freeware you download from the Web. You can decline the bundling option during the installation process, but most users fail to do so as they rush into ending the downloading of the program.
That is why you must always watch closely the installation process of any program you download on your PC; disallow the features you know nothing about, and aim for custom installation instead.

Should You Remove MixVideoPlayer?

It’s really up to you. If you find its features more useful than its negatives, you can surely continue to use it. If you, however, find irregularities such as unwanted programs installed on your PC, your system being slowed down, annoying pop-ups, or what not, then you surely must take measures to remove it. Although it’s not malicious by its nature, MixVideoPlayer may interfere your normal activities and even allow other applications to harm your system.
