Where does MixVideoPlayer come from?

We have mentioned in the first paragraph that MixVideoPlayer can be installed willingly. After all, the media player has an official website at mixvideoplayer.com. Thus, if users are looking for media player that can help them make playlists across different platforms (like YouTube and the actual media library on your computer), then it wouldn’t be surprising if they came across MixVideoPlayer and installed it hoping that this program will provide them with some useful feature.

One the other hand, our security researchers suggest that it is far more common to come across MixVideoPlayer in software packages that distribute a number of potentially unwanted software applications via file sharing and torrent websites. The same distribution method was applied by NewPlayer, FastPlayer, MagnoPlayer, and other similar media players from the same family. All of them have the same publisher identified as SoftForce LLC.

What does MixVideoPlayer do?

We do not discuss the main MixVideoPlayer’s function because it doesn’t concern us as much as its side features. They worry us far more than any playlist you might create with this application. The problem is that MixVideoPlayer displays a pop-up with video stripe advertisement every hour. You might say that it is annoying but most definitely not dangerous because you can close the pop-up whenever you feel like it.

However, you should not overlook the possibility, that MixVideoPlayer might display commercial ads embedded there by unreliable third parties. After all, the player doesn’t generate the pop-up content itself. MixVideoPlayer needs to relay on third-party advertising networks for whatever the information it displays.

One accidental click on a corrupted ad might redirect you to a website that collects your browsing data for online marketing purposes. That wouldn’t be much of a problem, considering that you might also accidentally open pages that are involved in malware distribution, and consequently you could get infected with dangerous threats.

How do I remove MixVideoPlayer?
