I have downloaded a *.flv file from You Tube, but WMP won't play it. Please advise on a simple player that will play it?
Thanks David

bluesbrother - thanks for your reply.
Any other ideas as I am on dial up and 20MB takes some down loading?
Thanks David

You could try Real Player, Never used it myself but have just tested the download size and it's 655kb. Your dialup should cope with that ok.

Sorry, your link to Real Player, click here

contains every codec for playing any media file you will ever need click here

and if i could be pedantic for a sec, 20 MB downloaded at 56k takes roughly 6 mins 40 secs, not really an eternity (The k-lite codec pack is 17 MB)

oh and for the love god don't use real player

I haven't used Real Player for years but I still shudder at the memory.
You could try Real Alternative 2.0.2 click here 6.58mb download.

I decided to work through your replies -
VLC player is 300 KB, where as the link says 9 MB and is a setup.exe, what does this mean?
Thanks David

sorry the 300KB download is a setup.exe, where as the link says its 19 MB, what does this mean?
Thanks david

You could try FLVPlayer: click here

It should be less than 5MB.

I use it and it works fine for me.
