    To play FLV files on your default video player, you need to install PlayFLV as well as ffdshow which is a media decoder/encoder. Once done, all FLV files are played without fault.

    but instead I suggest use k lite codec pack

    just download from any site and you can play flv files in wmp 11 or 12 :)

  19. tonalee says:

    it not work , fddshow , k lite codec , not work

  20. pizzed off pete says:

    The situation with codecs is typical of the lack of standardisation stupidity that is rampant within the IT industry. There are more proprietary formats than I have had hot dinners, and non are compatible.
    I tried this solution, and it didn’t work. Users end up with a hard drive full off crappy video players to cover the multitude of junk formats that propagate the internet.

  21. hoova says:

    stuff media player install real alternative and Klite and you can play ANYTHING you like,media player is CRAP
