flv videoThanks to YouTube and Google Video, watching videos on the Internet has become quite popular. There are even a lot of programs, tricks and websites that let you download videos from the Internet in order to use them on your preferred device. But what if you want to watch one of these videos on your computer by using Windows Media Player? One thing to keep in mind is that you can not watch a just-downloaded video file from You Tube or Google Video as it is. As a matter of fact, such a file has got a flv format which is not supported by WMP. An easy solution is to convert it to whatever format you wish by using such a website. If you don’t want to waste any time to upload and encode, here is a simple solution which lets you watch your flv video on your computer without further delay. The solution is called PlayFlv and it is a simple, small, easy-to-install software or I’d better say plugin which, as it name goes, lets you watch flv files by using Windows Media Player. Here is a list of its most important features:

  • Features all default functions, such as zooming, skipping and full screen view
  • Creates file association: Double-click FLV files to play them in Windows Media Player
  • Very lightweight plugin
  • Free and open source
