View Full Version : [SOLVED] Make a Flash Video Play on Windows

September 19th, 2010, 07:19 AM

I have a flash video that I may or may not have acquired from youtube by looking in my ~/.mozilla/firefox/something.default/cache directory.

it opens fine on any Ubuntu media player i throw at it.

i converted it to .mpg, i think, with ffmpeg.

ffmpeg -i inputfile outputfile.mpg

it continues to play wonderfully on any Ubuntu media player I throw at it, but does not work in Win7 media player or VLC.

ideas? i can and will use windows tools if need be, but would prefer to use ubuntu tools to accomplish this.

vlc wouldn't play it, but infraview would.

All is well.
