Hmm. Which of the two sites did you download FLV Splitter from?
If sourceforge, then there's a "Release" and a "Release Unicode" folder inside the archive. Make sure you installed/registered the "Release Unicode" version for Win2k/XP/Vista (the "Release" version is for Win9x).

There's an actual installer available on the other site (inmatrix.com).

Other than that, I'm really not sure what you're doing wrong.

You're not by any chance using Winamp 5.51 Public Beta are you?
If so, 5.51 comes with a new FLV Decoder (in_flv.dll)

However, Nullsoft in_flv.dll can only decode VP6 content
(AOL Video Streams are switching over to this format)

It cannot decode H.263 content

H.263 is the codec used by Flash Video FLV's from sites like youtube.com

We aren't licensed to decode H.263, therefore it isn't supported... yet.

If you've followed the instructions from my post on the first page of this thread, and you're getting audio but no video, then this to me suggests that in_flv might be present, and you'll need to remove it first...

More info here:
http://forums.winamp.com/showthread....d=282570#notes


I expect there to be a heap more posts about this after 5.51 is released.
Fun times... not :-/

5.35. Installing the inmatrix rather than the sourceforge splitter did the trick. (As someone said above, "you are a god man"... )

Hmm, ok. Strange though, because they're the exact same splitter. Though I guess that it must be easier with the inmatrix download being a setup.exe installer, as opposed to the manual installation from sourceforge...

Right, I should have said the inmatrix installer did the trick.

I had been confused about the standard vs unicode splitters, so had installed and registered the wrong version for XP, which you clarified a few posts below the initial instructions. I had assumed that the mirror link ("Win9x & mirrors") referred only to the Win9x version. Also hadn't realized at first that the unzipped ffdshow file is an installer and not the actual component. So it was just frustration piled upon misunderstanding, re-reading, re-tracing steps etc -- we all know how that goes sometimes. Finally the brain uncramped and everything fell into place.

strangeness - no filters showing up

I beleive I have followed the steps Egg listed below:

- FLVSplitter.ax extracted & REGSVR32'd
from flvsplitter20060320 (tried both "Release" and "Release unicode")
- ffdshow (12/17/07) is set for "libavcodec" for all ("set all stable formats to libavcodec")
- the ";FLV" is added to the WinAmp config

When I try to play an FLV, I get no video at all.

When I Alt-3 on the FLV file, it shows no filters at all.

Any ideas?

What does it show in File Info (Alt+3)?

Here's a simpler way:

1) Download and install the Combined Community Codec Pack @ cccp-project.net
2) Add FLV to the DirectShow extension list: Options > Preferences > Plugins > Input > DirectShow > Configure

CCCP installs fddshow and a bunch of other codecs and handles registering them for you.

No. My solution is the one & only recommended method. No other.

The version of ffdshow in the above screenshot is old and not the latest version.

-Install the separate flv splitter
-Install the latest SSE version of ffdshow
-Make sure ffdshow is configured to handle all of h.263, flv1, vp6
-Either remove Nullsoft in_flv.dll (if you installed it in the 5.51 installer options), or save your flv files as .flv1 instead of .flv
-Add ;FLV and/or ;FLV1 to in_dshow config extension list

And that is all.

Little bit defensive, eh? Sorry to bruise your apparently fragile ego, but installing CCCP and adding the FLV extension to directshow worked for me.

So you installed a huge codec pack just to play flv files?

We do not recommend installing codec packs, as they invariably cause more problems than solutions... by installing unrequired codecs/filters/splitters, and in many cases, duplicate ones which end up just causing conflicts.

I'm not being defensive. Just professional. No ego required.

Except that I don't just need to play FLVs, I also need several other codecs, so I might as well install a pack instead of each one individually. I haven't had any problems because of this. But even if I did only need FLV support, it's still a lot easier to install CCCP than going through all of your steps.

If you say so... though I still have to disagree.
It's easy to install FLV Splitter and ffdshow
and that's what this thread is about...
how to play FLV files, not any other format...

plus you don't end up with a huge DShow Filter list showing in dxdiag,
with multiple splitters/codecs listed that all handle the same file types.

Grab the K-Lite Mega CoDEC pack and install, this will handle all major CoDecs (including .flv) extentions without all the bulk of Bloatware.

Also don't forget the Qtime Lite (Quicktime Alternative)
and RealAlternative (RealPlayer Alternative).

http://www.codecguide.com/download_mega.htm

All three packs work WONDERFULLY with WinAMP!

hi!
thx for the good instructions, works perfekt so far!

BUT, as i look at the original video from youtube, then the same (downloaded version) on my pc :

1.--i see the pixel-like-squares in the video much more intense, its like 1 cm big pixels lol, althought not 1 color but the real video, if u know what i mean! maybe the player on youtube is using some "antialising" of some kind!

2. --- the audio quality is worse!

any1 any clue? i know sound is been told to be mono on youtube, but still its a much better one than after-the-dl

Hmm, strange.

Are you viewing the FLV's at their original size in Winamp, or is the video window maybe set at a larger size and you've disabled the auto-resize setting in Prefs -> Video?

I guess the sound also depends on your Winamp settings...
Prefs -> Playback: Allow 24bit, etc etc
Prefs -> Plugins -> Output -> out_ds -> config
Whether the EQ is on or not...

And maybe also ffdshow settings (though that depends on whether you're using ffdshow/libmad or the Windows/Fraunhofer mp3 codec for DirectShow mp3 playback).

That is known as blocking and that is because YouTube videos are SHIT! The blocks will be either 8 or 16 pixels in size (I don't know what kind of partitions H.263 uses). These blocks arise because the video is compressed way too much. If you want to try and hide them you can use ffdshow for decoding, which will require you to swap to in_dshow for flv playback, and then enable ffdshow's post-processing features, specifically the deblocker.

Whoops, you must be using in_dshow if you can playback YouTube videos.

YouTube's flash player does not do any kind of post-processing like this as it is far too inefficient on just the decoding. You may not notice the blocking if the video is being resized by the flash player where as Winamp may be showing it at the original size.

hi, i was trying it and it works fine with some flv but with my crunchyroll flvs it does not work, for some reason the video appears completely damaged in winamp, with some annoying green lines over it and the image is all distorted. If i play the same video in flv player there is not a single problem

Do you know what can i do?

thanks

i meant the video on his full screen size! when i full size in youtube and wineamp the ratio is the same! I have 2 versions, one in FLV and one in AVI, and the one in AVI is the video quality of the youtube video too, that means, no squares seen anymore, at least no video quality loss! i think it has something to do with how u dl the youtube video! The FVL is downloaded with the firefox-plugin , so that is a do-not-try-at-home! the AVI i dled with some paste-youtube-link-and-dl-website!

i use the ffdshow/libmad things u described!

About audio: the thing is, in youtube treble is clear without beeing disturbing, and voice is clear too, i tryed some winamp tweaks, but when voice is clear, the treble thing gets unclear/disturbing! maybe it's jsut tweaking-problem , my opinion : its a quality loss in audio!

and the ffdshow settings are very much work for me, or should i say, to complicated for me ! anyway thx all for support ! cya

Nullsoft Flash decoder is just able to play VP6 video and not the newer H.264. All videos from YouTube etc are H.264, so you need Nullsoft DirectShow decoder, otherwise you'll just hear sound, but won't see any video.

1. Uninstall Nullsoft FLV decoder
2. Install latest ffdshow and separate flv splitter
3. Open the configuration of Nullsoft DirectShow decoder, add ;FLV to the extension list.

4. Go to Preferences --> File types and make sure, that FLV is selected.

No manual registering is required.
The download link for the FLVSplitter in the instructions is an installer. Did you run the installer?

I think it prompts to install FLVSPlitter somewhere in "C:\Program Files\..." by default, though I changed the install path to "C:\Windows\System32" because that's where I had the older version installed.

Other than that, make sure you follow all 3 steps in the instructions, exactly.
Well, there's actually 4 steps, because you also need to disable the Nullsoft VP6 FLV Decoder (as specified in the IMPORTANT section at the bottom of the Instructions).

Hrmmmmm...

I'm not rightly sure then. It works fine here.

What DO you see in Alt+3? Anything?

Checklist:

1. Install FLVSplitter (by downloading & running the installer)
2. Installer latest SSE version of FFDShow, and configure it as instructed
3. Move in_flv.dll out of the Winamp\Plugins folder into some backup folder elsewhere
4. Open Winamp and add ;FLV to the extension list in in_dshow config
