About FLV players

FLV players play Adobe Flash videos. Most Internet browsers have built-in support for playing FLV files, with the notable exception of Safari on iOS, which will not play Flash for a number of reasons. (Apple has cited security, battery usage, the lack of a touch interface, poor performance on mobile devices, and licensing costs.)

    Best FLV players

    Whether you're streaming a Flash video over the Internet or viewing a file already on your device, you have a variety of options for playing FLVs, no matter which platform you're on. Even iOS users have options, despite Safari not playing Flash files. Windows, MacOS, iOS, and Android each have free apps that will let you play Flash videos.

    Windows FLV players
    Google Chrome ( Windows Mac, Android, iOS) has built-in support for playing FLVs. Stream a Flash video from a website, or click and drag an FLV file into the browser window.

    If you prefer a video player with more functions -- such as controls for color, contrast, and brightness -- VLC Media Player ( Windows, Mac, Android, iOS) is arguably your best bet for playing an FLV that's already on your Windows PC.

    Mac FLV players
    Apple's Safari browser can play Flash videos, but the function is disabled by default in version 10. A pop-up window will ask you to confirm that you want to play the file. If you click the Use Once button, you will grant permission one time, for that particular file or stream. If you click the Use Every Time button, then Safari will automatically play Flash videos from that point forward, instead of asking you.

    To re-enable this pop-up window, access your Safari preferences by pressing the Command and comma keys at the same time. Click the Security tab and confirm that the boxes next to Enable Javascript and Allow Plug-ins are checked. Click Manage Website Settings, select Adobe Flash Player, change When Visiting Other Websites to Allow, and click Done to save your changes.

    iOS FLV players
    While Safari on iOS does not play FLVs, you can use a third party app such as PlayerXtreme Media Player. It's compatible with a variety of video files formats, including MP4 and WMV. However, PlayerXtreme doesn't stream Flash content from a website, only videos that are saved on your device or available on your local network. If you want to view online Flash content, you will need to pay a few dollars for an app like Puffin Web Browser.

    Android FLV players
    Like iOS, Android no longer has built-in support to play Flash videos; it automatically switches to HTML5 when available. Your best bet for watching Flash online on Android is to view it in a third-party Web browser like Dolphin or Puffin. To view Flash videos offline in Android, you can use an app like MX Player.
