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.
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.
