Life of a Jackal

Another day a new beginning

Watch FLV files on your media player

ohhh you may be wondering what .flv are. They are the kind of files you find on youtube, Google video and the likes. You can download those files using either Firefox extensions or various bookmarklets available…
After downloading using these few steps you can enjoy them on windows media player rather than various apps build for FLV playback which aren’t that good at all… so enjoy

First step :
Download and install ffdshow

Then :

  1. Download the packed binary file (build by “Celtic Druid”)
  2. Extract the filter file (flvsplitter.ax) from the archive
  3. Copy the file to your “windows/system32” directory
  4. From the Start menu choose “Run” and enter: regsvr32 flvsplitter.ax

If you intend to uninstall the filter at any time run regsvr32 -u flvsplitter.ax and remove the file.

Still didn’t understand how to do it, then watch this video on how to do the whole thing.

  1. Thanks a friggen million. That thing of enabling the flv thingy in ffdshow was my problem, and it’s not ever mentioned anywhere. Thanks!
