FLV Codec Plugin

Editor's Review


The Play FLV codec is not a stand-alone FLV Video Player but it does give your installation of Windows Media Player the ability to play FLV files by installing a codec.

The PlayFLV.com Plugin Codec is an installation package that enables Windows Media Player to play FLV (Flash Video) files.

Key features

  • Plugin that enables Windows Media Player to playback FLV files
  • Features all default functions, such as zooming, skipping and full screen view
  • Creates file association: Double-click FLV files to play them in Windows Media Player
  • Very lightweight plugin

Technical details

This program installs and registers FLVSplitter by Gabest. It binds FLV files to Windows Media Player, enabling playback of FLV files by double-clicking them. The installer prompts to download and install ffdshow, required for movies in Flash 7 file format. An uninstaller is included in the package.

Alternatives

  • An offline standalone FLV player is available here.
  • This program only installs the FLV playback component for Windows Media Player. You can also install a codec pack like K-lite, which not only installs the FLV component but also dozens of other video playback components.

PlayFLV is a project by Barend.nu and your download is made possible by PlayFLV.com the FLV Codec site.
