You need a flash player, I googled .flv and found this Free FLV Player. Download the Applian FLV Player
I have been asked numerous times in the last few days by different staff asking to use You Tube for lessons. Unfortunately here it is blocked by RM so we cannot access it.
I have tried to download a sample flv file from an unblocked site using Firefox and Video downloadhelper.
I have now got a .flv file that nothing seems to be able to open.
What can i use to open the software. I have tried VLC Player and get this error:
ffmpeg: av_open_input_stream failed
Hope you can help.
Our languages dept. always wants youtube videos and as usual they are blocked for normal access, so they send me the url and I use Mediaconvertor.org and change them into an .avi file and leave them in their user area. works a treat
I've tried conversion websites and the results are usually poor. To play flv's I use K-Lite Codec pack with Media Player Classic. However, Mediacoder is supposed to take YouTube URL's and convert them on the fly.
VLC will also play FLV
If you have any Linux workstations .flv files open with no problem with the built in Totem movie player (Ubuntu)
Online convert to AVI/DivX. Never let us down yet.
It should just work, there's something funky with your FLV file if VLC wont play it.
I am using VLC Player on OS X. Would this make a difference?
Maybe, I don't have any Macs around to try it on.
