Notes about the FLV file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The FLV file type is primarily associated with 'Flash' by Adobe Systems Incorporated.

Adobe Flash, initially known as Shockwave Flash and popularly called simply Flash, refers to both the Adobe Flash Player and to the Adobe Flash Professional multimedia authoring program.

The Flash Player, developed and distributed by Adobe Systems (which acquired Macromedia in a merger that was finalized in December 2005), is a client application available in most common Web browsers.

Among other uses, if you obtain a video from YouTube it will likely have the .FLV file extension and be a Flash Video File. Media-Convert can convert these files to other formats. See the FILExt Conversion FAQ and the FILExt CODEC and Video Player FAQ for viewers like VLan and others.
