Coral Player

There is a common habit in internet users to download videos. Most if them work perfectly fine on our video players. But sometimes, the video is encoded and would play on some particular video players only. There are many such video players and one of them is Coral Player. And this player is not genuine but a scam.

Coral Player is a scam, but not a virus. Basically the maker's create fake torrents - usually new release or popular movies. They claim to be avi files of the movie, and usually ~ 700mb or so.


However when you get the movie, all it is, is a trailer and tells you to go and download coral player. If you fall for it, it asks you to pay a small fee to use coral player but you gotta give them your credit card number, which they then charge a monthly fee of about $30 . But you never get any player to download, and the file that claims you need Coral Player to play it, isn't even a movie file at all - it's just a trailer with Coral Player ad.
They 'pad out' the file to make it roughly the size of a legitimate movie, so people will download it, I mean after all, if you saw a "movie" that was only 1.5mb would you fall for it and download it?

In short, a complete scam - if you get one of these files just delete it - anything that asks you to download a "special" movie player to play it, chances are high it being a scam.


VLC Media Player

Personally I recommend downloading VLC player. It's an open source video player. There is no format that I know this cannot play. So if you open up a video file in this program and it doesn't work, it could be some other file and not a video file. Also, audio files can be run on VLC. So, it's a nice player.
You can download it here.



Disclaimer:
This is just a information that I got to know. If anyone has actually used Coral player and if it is not a scam, pleae let me know. I would be happy to correct it. It's just my opinion.. You are advised to do your own research before believing anything or taking any action.

  3. Hello Jammy. I was just about to buy that freaking Coral Player when I read this blog. Thank you very much for exposing their modus operandi, encoding movies in their own format, then creating a player that would play those "stolen" movies in exchange for money. Absolutely it's a scam!

    To all those who are able to hack and are reading this: "Why don't we just wage war against this scammer and teach him a lesson?!"

  4. ya teach him a lesson.

    i spent 3 days downloading the movie at a speed of 256kbps.

    WTF!! he is an idiot.............

  9. hi all!
    ive been reading into this for the past hour now and everything ive read points to this being a con and theres very little that can be done about it! however if we all share our findings im sure we will gain better insight! for example-
    i downed three films today,all from fenopy.com and all needed coral. the size of all three being the same = 742mb (a clue maybe? perhaps some base file with different names attached each time??)
    so far it would seem size and site are significant if not hugely coincidental!

    id also like to point out a partner site to fenopy (im sorry i dont remember and deleted the file) also had a similar exploit which directed you to "www.codecavil.com" for pretty much the same reason so AVOID this too!

    how can someone make money from a bootleg film/album like this? answer- they cant! thats theft against the big boys and not a few "pirates" for pence at a time! its just a scam!

    as i said if we all share it becomes less of a problem for us all! knowledge is power they say so we should all be armed. and on that note i hope someone with greater knowledge than i can find a solution to this once and for all!

  22. Whenever you download a full movie file through torrents these days, especially if it is a much awaited dvdrip or such of a new movie, when you have downloaded alteast 20mb of the file, try to play it on VLC or GOM player. If the coralfucker screen appears, stop the download and dump the file. Don’t wait for the entire file to get sucked into your system.
    Will save you of the time and disappointment.

  30. Whenever you make an online purchase from such a website create first a self cancelling virtual online credit card with a small sub limit. The card expires and then cannot be created again and billed further. If you have used your regular credit card, please report loss of card and get it blocked. Take a new card. Better to pay the charges for that rather than getting billed monthly for nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  31. thanks for that info. now i know that if vlc can't play it then it probably can't be played. i usually use vlc to preview incomplete movie downloads with no problems. so the next time a so called video file ask for another player i'll just cancel the torrent.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thanks a lot for the info... Even i 2 downloaded Transformers (torrent file) and it gives the coralfucker screen when i try to play it in VLC.. WTF in scam....

  38. People, people Coral Player IS a real program - I just used it to watch part of one of those 'scam' movies (~700mb, but cries for Coral Player when opened). I dunno what kind of black magic they are using, but when you load the 'scam' file in Coral Player, it redirects to a website that has exactly what the movie claimed to have in the first place - (i.e. whatever movie you downloaded, now you actually get to watch it).

    It's a lousy trick to get people to buy their player, and it's a CRAZY business practice to think people will pay a subscription for a movie player, but it IS a real program and it DOES play those files.

  44. Isn't this a doube standard for you all.. Downloading movies is piracy. That is theft. That coral player nonsense you are complaining about is just teaching you a lesson to go out and buy DVDs instead of stealing and breaking copyright..

    ReplyDelete
  54. I agree it sucks we that can not afford to go and buy the movies or we find out that they don't have it. Well it makes it tough for us. Just watch the next thing will be they will hit music and other kinds of program downloads. It will only be a matter of time before they try and grab it all. Someone has to find a way to create a program to DISTROY THEM AND then post the new way to distroy it on the torrent sites so we can use it to.

    I аin't saying your content isn't good, but suppose you аdԁed a post title
    to maуbe get a peгѕon's attention? I mean "Coral Player" is a little boring. You should look at Yahoo's

    You might try adԁing a video or a pictuгe or two to
