You can play flash videos with Media Player Classic or any DirectShow supporting player using the Freeware K-Lite Codec Pack. K-Lite Codec Pack Standard is a free software bundle which contains everything you need to play the most popular audio and video formats like flv. You can play flv files afater installing K-Lite Codec as it has FLV splitter.

Flash Video Splitter or FLV (the format used to display video in Flash content) Splitter helps to watch .FLV files locally. You will also need to install a FLV decoder. FFDShow can be enabled to play this format by selecting FLV1 from Decoder tab.
