  • After installing ffdshow, my windows media player is still unable to play flv files. What is wrong? The pop-up window states that the selected file has an extension (.flv) that is not recognized by WMP but the Player might still be able to play it. Because the extension is unknown by the Player, you should be sure the file comes from a trustworthy source. Do you want the Player to try to play this content? And when I clicked YES; another pop-up states : The player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file. Now what do I do?
