Re: Play FLV files in Windows Media Player

Windows Media Player does not play .flv files. However, by using the PlayFLV plugin, we can play FLV files on WMP.

Download PlayFLV plugin
and double-click to install it. PlayFLV associates itself with FLV files, so once you install it, double clicking an .flv video file will automatically open in Windows Media Player.

You need to download FFDShow, install it then in the FFDShow program I think you enable codecs. Then download FLV Splitter and install, once done, click the close button and now open the flv file with WMP 11, if you can't be bothered just download VLC Media Player.

The latest versions of Windows Media Player should play Flash FLV files without any problem, but you may need to install a media decoder first. If your version of WMP doesn't work with FLV files, try installing ffdshow.

When you open an FLV file the player may give you a warning message saying that it doesn't recognize the file extension ? click OK and play the file anyway.
