    I want to be able to play FLV videos on Windows Mediaplayer 11. Where can I
    download the codec and how do I install it so it functions with Windows
    Mediaplayer 11?

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    I don't know of any way to play it in Windows media player, but you might
    want to look at GOM player. It is freeware and plays most media types
    (including FLV). It uses internal codecs, so there is no need to download
    individual codecs and have them mess with and corrupt your computer. GOm is
    very small and uses a very small footprint (Unlike WMP). I use it as the
    default media player for all my media (except mp3)

    I second that...

    Gomplayer is what media player should have been...

    the best player I have ever found, and I have tried almost everything that
    exists!

    media player 11 is a total disgrace! It was developed for vista.. what do
    you expect other than crap?

  7. Absolutely! I always recommend GOM Player. Also XnView and VLC Player.

    It is comical that giant Microsoft can't find the "talent" somewhere
    in it's 79,000 employees to write a decent media player while tiny
    little companies give away much better players. In fact it is shameful
    that Microsoft is outperformed in this area.

    Hey, could you not link directly to an .exe ?
    Didn't think people did that type of stuff.

    www.gomplayer.com, hit the download link.

    It's just bad form to post a direct link to an executable , regardless of
    the OS that opens the post.
