    my problem isint that i cant find a flv player, its that i want to be able to play my .flv files in windows media player. i saw on my friends alienware computer that he was doing this and i asked how, he said "it just did". so i did a google search but came up short... afterdawn is my last hope. Im only looking for a .flv codec pack that will allow .flv files to play on windows media player

    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.

    Dear PanterX
    if you'd like to play flv files by your windows media player , just download and install adobe flash player . your windows media player will be able to play all flv files. Thata all ! Be succeed !

    u can try moyea flv to video converter, I've been using it for a long time. it is able to convert any flv files to avi,wmv, mov for play on popular video players, such as windows media player,you can follow the tutorial step by step I give you step by step, it works fine for me, I wish you haven't any problem too!

    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.
