As far as I know Adobe doesn't supply a standalone FLV-Player (they want you to build your own I guess), but there are several customizable and free solutions around on the web. All of them built on Flash of course.
The most popular is propably the JWPlayer which you can find here:
Hope that helps!
Oh I just noticed that the new Adobe Media Player (that came with my new CS4 package) will playback FLV now. I think that is exactly what you are looking for as it isn't even browserbased.
After I placed my original post I found a plug-in for QuickTime that allows it to play Flash videos. The name is Perian and does a very good job. Quite a convenient solution for those with Macs.
Thanks to you second post I was able to find and download the new Adobe Media Player and really liked it. The interface is quite nice and I think it has more functions that I haven't yet had the chance to explore (it seems far more than just a simple player).
I noticed that in Adobe Media Player the videos seem to play with better quality so this will definitely become my default player for Flash media from now on.
Thank you again for your reply and helpful answers to my questions.
