    Downloaded some old music files that are FLAC (not illegal :squint: ) and was curious what program you use to play them?

    Same question for flv's?

    Media player classic for all of my video needs.

    If I need to convert it, then its mediacoder.

    Winamp plays FLV? You mean I don't need Riva installed anymore?

    It is listed where you can pick the file association. But I dunno, cause I don't have an *.flv's.

    There's a couple of splitters, filters and codecs out there that will let you play these easily. I've been using the Combined Community Codec Pack which has pretty much everything in there (flv splitter, ffdshow, ac3, xvid etc)

    Then you can use most media players of your choice e.g. Media Player, BS Player, Media Player Classic etc.

    VLC Player plays pretty much everything out of the box and is an excellent fallback, it's just not as polished and as good an interface as the other options imo.
