RealPlayer has the functionality for downloading FLV files from the Internet to local hard disk. You can try it.

General Software Discussion / Re: Playing FLV files
« on: May 06, 2009, 05:20 AM »
I had to download a FLV player, and it works fine.  BUT:

Can someone explain why it takes a dedicated FLV player to play downloaded Flash files?

Why can't they simply be played using a browser?

What's the difference between a downloaded FLV file and one that resides on a website, in other words, why does Flash open up when you go to the website, but if you paste the downloaded file in the URL window, it just does nothing?

Is there a way to invoke Flash without using the browser?

Thanks!

Because the FLV files on website is not only a FLV, it is embedded to a SWF file, the SWF file can play FLV, that's the difference between a desktop FLV and an online FLV. (How to make a flash video player for website)
