Playing FLV files with Windows Media Player 11

Thanks to afterdawn for these directions:

  1. Install FFDSHow as per the directions. In the installer, check MP3 for audio; defaults are otherwise OK.
  2. Install Gabest Flash Video Splitter v1.0.0.4, also available at the above link.

When you open an FLV link in WMP you’ll get a warning that it doesn’t recognize the extension, but the file will play.

May come in handy for the Media Center project…
