    How to play Flash video .FLV files (FLV players)

    Play flash video .FLV files with Free Applian FLV Player

    1. Download and install freeware Applian FLV Player. Note that it is available for Windows platform only.
      If you already have Replay AV or Replay Media Catcher installed (it can be used to record .FLV videos easily), then FLV player is already loaded for you.
    2. Locate the FLV file using File Explorer. If you've used Replay AV, click the Show you've captured, then click the View button.
    3. Double click the .FLV file. It begins playing in FLV Player.

    Playing .FLV videos with free VLC Player

    Freeware VLC Player is available for Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, BeOS and other platforms. VLC Player can play .FLV video files among others.

    Play flash videos with Media Player Classic or any DirectShow supporting player

    Freeware K-Lite Codec Pack (Windows) has an FLV splitter so after installing it you will be able to play .FLV files with Windows Media Player, free Media Player Classic or any other DirectShow-supporting player.

    When installing K-Lite Codec Pack don't forget to mark "FLV Splitter" (DirectShow source filter) among the installed components. You will also need to mark ffdshow decoder to decode video and some DirectShow audio filters to decode audio (Usually the default options will suit you OK. If you don't wanna keep them, make sure you understand what you are doing.)

    Among additional tasks for setup to perform find the "Decode the following video formats with ffdshow" group and mark the "FLV1" option.

    After installing double click your .FLV file to play.

    P.S. This was tested with K-Lite Mega Codec Pack v. 2.71f - 5.05.

    Other options to play flash video .FLV files
