Viewpoint Media Player (VMP) is a browser plug-in produced by Viewpoint Corporation. It is commonly installed with AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) and various other softwares, most often without the user's consent.
VMP is sometimes considered to be spyware because the license agreement states that the software collects information about users' interactions with advertisements and the browser and operating system in use. This information is reported to Viewpoint and is delivered with a unique identifying code. Most people consider this to be an infringement on their privacy.
The addition of their advertisements and collection of information will most often create a performance decrease on the user's computer. Though viewpoint can be partially removed through the Add/Remove programs dialog in Windows, many users have reported having to search for all folders with "Viewpoint" in the name to completely remove the program from their system.
