BlitZ, The 57th;4945943Well, FLV seemed like a smaller file compared to WMW thats why I wanted to convert them.

Surely you're not that desperate for space? I'd rather burn my stuff to DVD than use a format like FLV.

Well, my brother took the external hard drive along for the naval trip. All the music, movies and videos are in there.I'm stuck with my non-upgraded hard drive (60GB). P.S. With the codecs I'm able to play FLVs in their original state but not FLVs that have been converted from other file types. I also can't play AVI? Both gives me the sound but no pictures.

The codecs allow me to play FLV files but not the FLV files that were converted from other file types in media player. As for the VLC player, I have it, it plays FLV but doesn't allow me to use the progress bar? Everytime I use it, it restarts the entire video. VLC player also suffers from this: "With the codecs I'm able to play FLVs in their original state but not FLVs that have been converted from other file types. I also can't play AVI? Both gives me the sound but no pictures. "

VLC should be able to play AVI files, are you sure the files aren't corrupt?

VLC can play /anything/. If it doesn't work in VLC, chances are it won't work in anything else - i.e, you have a corrupted or otherwise broken file.

Also, if the progress bar doesn't work, that usually means the video index needs rebuilding. IIRC, VLC has an option to repair that, too.
