Windows 7: Playing FLV video with Zune Software

Playing FLV video with Zune Software

I have Shark007's codecs installed on Windows 7 64 bit SP1. I can play all kinds of files including FLV videos using WMP12. But Zune 4.7 software can't open FLV files. Does Zune not support Shark007's codecs?

The Shark007 software installs directshow splitters and filters (known as codecs) which are supported by the Windows installed players (WMP and MediaCenter).
The Zune player does not use codecs.

Zune 4.0: Any customization software?
OK, so I know we've had Zune Software Customizer before...but has anyone seen anything to customize 4.0 yet? I love the software, but the colors are atrocious. Mods: Wasn't sure if I should put this here or in Customization. Move it if you need too.
Zune Software's Future
Does anyone here who thinks that the Zune Hardware and software will work out? Or will it end up like Microsoft Urge Service and system? I like it but I wish it would play all the formats. Then it would be perfect. What you guys think? Will MS scrap it and work on WMP future versions?
