FLV files in Windows Media Player

On MS Answers I read that wmp12 can't play flv files. I don't know because I disabled wmp on my pc.

You have 3 options:
1. Get an .flv codec (not really recommended) Codecs from other sources can be messy.
2. convert it to e.g. .wmv with Format Factory - Free media file format converter
3. Play it with VLC Download VLC Media Player 1.1.7 - FileHippo.com
