    Folks:

    What is the best software (or your favorite) out there that can be used to
    play FLV format files.


    Thanks,
    JoJo.

    Ho JoJo,
    I use VideoLan VLC Player:
    http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

    During installation, there is a window where you can choose what file
    types (file extensions) to associate with the player. I uncheck all of
    them, then just check .FLV and .VLC, since I don't want the player to
    take over any other file types that I have associated with other
    players.

    There are several small dedicated FLV players out there (dedicated to FLV,
    so they won't mess up any of your other video players and settings). Some
    examples include:

    Martijn FLV Player
    Riva FLV Player
    Sothink FLV Player

    Check them out by reviews, such as over on download.com, and by Google.

    The only one of those three I've tried is the Riva FLV player. It is
    small and handy, but not only doesn't it have a Full Screen option, it
    does not let you resize the window either. That's why I went looking
    for something with more features.

    Both the Sothink and Martijn FLV Players have a Full Screen option.

    IrfanView(free) has had support for viewing FLV files since version 4.10.

    Good luck,

    Hello:

    I have used the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack that was recommended on Download.com
    to allow Windows Media Player to play .FLV files.

    See: http://www.codecguide.com/download_mega.htm .

    Cheers,
    Jerry
