I don't create FLV so I am not 100% sure about this (you might ask in the Flash forum) but I **think** that a "raw" FLV file needs some kind of support files to allow it to play... such as an imbedded player on a web site and/or a further conversion (with Flash?) to create a file that plays in a "standalone" fashion
But, as I said, you might ask in the Flash forum for more information
Try the VLC player. It should play the file fine.
@JSimon Do I need to install a VLC player? Or is it in the bundle somewhere? I do not recall seeing it when I right clicked and tried to point to something for the file to play with.
@jtSmith-I will try and open it with my Browser and see if that will suffice.
@JtSmith- BTW I put this ? in this area because I created the File in PremPro.. So I wondered why it would not play it back. However your idea of parking the file so a stand alone /embedded player made me think to try and open it with a Browser. Which indeed my .f4v file did open that PremPro created. Yet the FLV file would not open. IT seems FB (Flash Builder) has taken proprietary rights over it...
@JSimon- I could not find the VLC Player you mentioned, if you can tell me where I can find that or which or what program that is in...?
Anyhow FWIW, Prem Pro did a great job on creating a Lossless FLV file from a file that was 330mb to 11mb and still looks pretty good for web use. BTW.. Hence the Prem Pro post. After all we web users would like the smallest, cleanest file we can produce from our PremPro exports. Right? Thanks for the idea JT and J Simon if you get a chance to let me know if that VLC player came with my suite or must I download the Open Source VLC player..The one that turns every icon into an 'orange construction cones'
Happy New Year. 13
Thanks JT After further thought about it. I guess having every player that Prem Pro will export would be ludicris... Apple players through the alpahbet. Hence me NOT having the player installed, via Adobe install. As this computer is a new build. I thought Quciktime would open it, guess not. thanks for the link. Orange Cones here I come..
