Sorry to offend...I didn't know I had accidently responded...was going to say that I downloaded and installed K-lite codec Pack and haven't been able to make Windows Media Player play flv files with it yet. Is there a config or something other than installing it to make it perform as you indicated it would?

I'm just a novice looking for help.

I was looking for help on this earlier today. If you did not already solve the problem, just download the full codec set (instead of the LITE) version. Worked for me anyway on an XP machine.

I had trouble playing flv files in media player. Even the suggested codec didn't work.

I then downloaded and tried the Windows Vista codec pack and installed it on my XP machine. Everything is now working fine and I can play flv files with no problems.

Hey guys the only codec pack that i have is CCC (Combined Community Codec) and i just right-click on .flv files and select 'Open With...', Windows Media Player and checked the 'Always Use Selected Program...' button and they work fine after telling WMP to ignore any error messages that popped up about it

CCC is the only codec i use because it doesn't work well with others and i can play everything that i come across so...

This is just so u have another way in case u don't like the ones already suggested

Flv Extract will split the file into avi and mp3. Then combine/recode with Virtualdub.
