I saw that I needed to install vio player to watch a certain movie on 1channel. I googled it to see if it was a scam and found nothing but reviews for the video player. So, I clicked the link for the download. I got the launcher and ran it. It was during the installation that my AVG antivirus give me a warning about one file. It deleted this file. Then, I got another warning about a different file. Deleted that one also. Setup and license agreement was next. Every section of it tried to set up a toolbar or search thing in my web browser. It was misleading about how to not do these things. I had to carefully read all the small print to figure out what it was it was asking me to do. Literally four times it tried to give me different things that said they would monitor and store web activity. After wading through all these things, I finally finished it. The player was installed. I did not launch it. I went back to 1channel and tried to watch the movie. It told me that I had to install the vio player that I had just finished installing. There were ten links for this movie, and they all directed to the same thing. They all had like a thousand perfect score ratings. None of them linked to any movie. I looked through the numerous comments and many were repeated over and over by different users. Obvious bots placing positive posts. The whole thing was a scam to get people to install the player that came bundled with tons of misleading spyware. This vio player thing should be avoided at all costs.
The company uploads fake media files to torrent sites which prompt the user to download their software in order to play the media file.
Easy video player with out all the bells a whistles, excellent play back, small foot print on your hard drive.
Several adwares were found with this soft. Not reliable at all for me!
