    support in windows 10 for .flv files?


    Windows 7 and 8 I don't believe had native support for .flv video files, does windows 10 and if not what is the best way to achieve this?

    I always thought the work around was to open them in Internet Explorer.

    I use VLC. It will play anything you throw at it. You can right click on a .flv file and assign VLC as the default program and works great.

    VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework!

    I have used Internet Explorer with flash player installed in the past. I like VLC better. Just my preference.

    I would agree. The OP asked for native support, so I went with an answer that didn't involve software. VLC would give a better playback experience, and you can't beat the price (free).

    This, I have used VLC player for all my media since Vista. I don't use any other player for video. It has never given me any problems no matter what file format I throw at it. Be it AVI, MPG, MP4, MKV, FLV, anything.

    And I'm old school, I still use WinAMP for all my music listening (I know there might be better programs out there) but I have been using WinAMP since XP and I prefer that as well for my sound system.

    Winamp — It really whips the llama's ass!

    Yes! It works great. But a 4K Movie with 40 min. running time is a very big file - 18GB!!!
