In these cases, we suggest that you re-try your download.
A: The software available for free download at MediaPlayer.net is licensed in a number of different ways. Shareware licensed programs—sometimes referred to as free to try, free trial, or try before you buy—offer some type of trial that can be function or time limited.
Once you’ve tried a shareware program, you know whether it will meet your needs before you pay for it. If you like a shareware program and want to continue using it after the end of a trial period, you have to purchase the full unrestricted version. If on the other hand you do not wish to keep the software, you can just uninstall it.
A: Shareware is commercial software, fully protected by copyright laws. Like other business owners, shareware authors expect to earn money for making their programs available. Paying for and registering a program also entitles you to support from the developer, as well as other benefits as specified by the developers. Moreover, the more consumers who pay a developer to use a program, the more likely the author will continue to improve it and offer updates.
A: Freeware programs are completely free to use and keep. They are either distributed for the good of humanity, for fame, or as stripped down versions of programs that do not cost money. Always check the license agreement if you consider using the application for anything other than your personal use.
A: Demo programs are usually meant to give you a small taste of a large program. They usually contain only selected parts of the program while giving you ample functionality, allowing you to decide if it will suit your needs.
A: Commercial software is software developed by a business which aims to make money from the use of the software. In most cases, it is a demonstrational copy released by the manufacturer to entice customers to buy their product. Commercial demos will usually only work for a short period of time and/ or have certain functions disabled.
A: Free trials of commercial software will often give you reminders when you trial will expire; it will also give you the option to extend your license.
A: Adware, or advertising supported software, is a product that is available for free and in exchange displays advertising banners within the software interface. Instead of having to pay for the software, the company creates revenue by selling advertising space on the software product.
Spyware is software that installs and hides itself somewhere on your computer for the purpose of monitoring the behavior of your activity on the Web and passing this information on to advertisers. Spyware is often installed onto your PC when you download and install other software published as “Freeware” or as “Adware”.
MediaPlayer.net protects its programs from spyware and adware in a number of ways. However, we strongly recommend that you read the End User License Agreement (EULA) of each product before your install anything. Often buried in the license agreement will be a disclaimer saying that information about you and your browsing habits will be sent to a third-party company.
A: Malware, or malicious software and also known as badware, is software designed to infiltrate or damage a computer system without the owner’s informed consent. It includes computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, spyware, intrusive adware, and other unwanted software. Malware should not be confused with defective software, or legitimate software that just contains harmful bugs.
