What is an .FLV file?

FLV files are video files saved in the Adobe Flash Video (FLV) container format. The FLV format was widely used in the 2000s to deliver videos, such as short clips, animations, and TV shows, online that could be played with the Flash Player desktop program or web browser plugin. However, in the 2010s, other web technologies surpassed the FLV format, and Adobe and many web browser developers officially ended support for Flash on December 31, 2020.

While the FLV format has been phased out, you may still encounter an FLV file when downloading video from the Internet. You might also receive FLV files from co-workers, family members, or friends looking to share videos or find an old FLV file on your computer. Regardless of how you acquire the FLV file, File Viewer Plus can play the video file and convert it to MP4 format.
