How to play YouTube/Google Flash Videos (FLV) in Winamp:


1) Download the FLV Splitter (required to demux the FLV container)

Win2k/XP/Vista | Win9x

To install the FLV Splitter, extract FLVSplitter.ax from the .7z archive

Note: you might need to install 7Zip to extract from .7z

and save FLVSplitter.ax to your %system% dir

%system% refers to wherever the system dir is for your Windows OS, eg.
for WinXP it's "C:\Windows\System32"
for Win2k it's "C:\WinNT\System32"
for Win9x it's "C:\Windows\System"

Then go to: Start > Run
Type: regsvr32 FLVSplitter.ax
Hit Enter

This will register the FLVSplitter on your system


2) If you don't already have it installed, install FFDShow to decode FLV content.

Make sure 'FLV1' is set to 'libavcodec' in:
Start > Programs > ffdshow > Video decoder config > Codecs page.

If it says 'disabled' next to FLV1, click on it and change it from 'disabled' to 'libavcodec' via the drop-down menu.


3) Add ;FLV to the Extension List in:

Winamp > Prefs (Ctrl+P) > Plugins > Input > DirectShow (in_dshow.dll) > config

so it now looks something like:

MPG;MPEG;M2V;AVI;FLV


You will now have playback support for FLV in Winamp.

ps. for GVI (google video) just use GVI2AVI (more info) to automatically strip the "goog" info out of the headers and change the extension to .avi (note, requires .NET Framework 2.x to be installed).
I DID THAT AND MY VIDEO COMES OUT FLIPPED VERTICALLY

PLEASE ADVISE
