I can't play a FLV file which I downloaded from a website, either directly
from the website of from the saved version.
I've read most of the posts regarding FLV including
My Irfanview is Version 4.00 with plugins updated 24 Nov 2008
The Extensions menu does not show FLV; all extensions are checked
and checked for all users.
I have WIN XP SP3 and IE7 and Firefox 3.
My WIN Explorer shows Flash.dll and Flash4.dll both shown as updated
24 Nov 2008.
The Irfanview website plugins page says
FLASH - (version 188.8.131.52): allows IrfanView to read Flash/Shockwave/FLV
format but I don't see any mention of FLV in my Irfanview application.
My Add/Remove programs shows two Flash applications:-
Adobe Flash Player 10 ActiveX downloaded via IE7
Adobe Flash Player 10 plugin downloaded via Firefox
both updated recently.
So why doesn't a flv file play?
