Player for watching .flv files
on Apr 3, 2012 at 7:17:13 pm

I have been streaming .flv files and am looking for a reliable player to test them out before publishing them online. I've been using VLC players to check and play flash files (.flv) files but have been experiencing playback problems.
Most of the time the VLC player will occasionally skip when playing back the .flv files and I am used to that. I Just downloaded the 2.0.1 two flower release and when I tried playing a .flv file, playback stalls, then starts to skip and play at what appears to be half speed of normal playback.

I'm using VLC 2.0.1 with the two flower release on a windows XP for business PC.

Is there a release that is better for playing .flv files that does not skip and it does not have to be a VLC player. I don't care if the player only plays .flv files, so long as it works. So far VLC is one of the best players I have found for watching .flv files but after downloading the 2.0.1 with two flower playback has definitely suffered.

What are you using and if you are using VLC what release? Where can I download it?

Thank you!

I find myself viewing and reviewing .flvs in QuickTIme player ( i use QuickTime pro). It has always felt pretty reliable to me.

Thanks, I haven't tried using QuickTime before. I'll test it out.
