FLV Splitter | mirror | Direct Download

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

For Winamp 5.54+

1. Make sure Nullsoft Flash Decoder (in_flv.dll) is checkmarked in the Installer Options

2. Install the 'Additional FLV Decoder' from the latest Essentials Pack

(See 'Updates/extras' section at bottom of first post in the 'Winamp 5.xx Released' sticky thread at the top of the 'Winamp Discussion' forum for info/download)


For Winamp 5.53 and earlier:


1) Download and install the FLV Splitter (required to demux the FLV container)
2) Install the latest SSE version of FFDShow, which is required to decode FLV content.

Make sure 'FLV1', 'VP6', 'VP6F', 'H.264/AVC' and 'H.263' are set to 'libavcodec' in:
Start > Programs > ffdshow > Video decoder config > Codecs page.

If it says 'disabled' next to FLV1, VP6, VP6F/FLV4, H.264/AVC or H.263 (+), 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.


More in-depth instructions/info here


IMPORTANT
If you are using Winamp 5.51 or higher, you will need to disable the Nullsoft VP6 FLV Decoder (in_flv.dll) first: Further instructions & workarounds

____________________________________________________________________


ps. for GVI (google video) just use GVI2AVI (more info) which automatically strips the "goog" info out of the headers and changes the extension to .avi (note, requires .NET Framework 2.x to be installed).


I was having the same problem this solution worked for me too. But this is a little elaborate just to play a simple flv file. I still love winamp. I remember back in the day they used to be far ahead of windows media player now they seem to be far behind. Hopefully there next player they come out with won't require so much hassle. Hopefully you just push play and go.

Winamp 5.5x can play flv files with vp6 content by default,
via the Nullsoft FLV Decoder (in_flv.dll) which comes shipped with the Winamp package.

However, if you also want it to be able to play the older flv format with h.263 content,
of the type commonly found on the likes of youtube.com,
then using the aforementioned DirectShow workaround is the best/recommended method*.

We are not licensed to play h.263/h.264/mpeg4/avc video content.

Such a license would cost us $5M/yr

http://www.mpegla.com/news/n_03-11-17_avc.html

Quote:
Royalties to be paid by end product manufacturers for an encoder, a decoder or both (“unit”) begin at US $0.20 per unit after the first 100,000 units each year. There are no royalties on the first 100,000 units each year. Above 5 million units per year, the royalty is US $0.10 per unit.

The maximum royalty for these rights payable by an Enterprise (company and greater than 50% owned subsidiaries) is $3.5 million per year in 2005-2006, $4.25 million per year in 2007-08 and $5 million per year in 2009-10
And there we have it. The end. Goodnight & thank you :-)

* Though that didn't stop someone from making an in_flv f.263 decoder for the Essentials Pack ;-)

Still doesn´t work

Hello,

I´ve tried the instructions many times, and it still doesn´t work.
Thanks in advance for the help.

I´m using windows 7 ultimate, and the thing that I notice that is different is that when I press Alt+3, nothing shows in the info box neither in the filters being used box.
What have I done wrong?

I´ve removed the in_flv.dll, configured the directshow to handle flv and flv1 files, instaled ffdshow and associated all the types with the libavcodec, registered the flvsplitter.ax.

This thread helped me in the past, I hope to be giving back a little:
In order to this tip work, you need to update to a newer flvsplitter, this one:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/guli...8.zip/download

I hope this helps.

Already tried the FFSoX Player plug-in?

Maybe you give the FFSoX Player pug-in a trie:

Home: http://in-ffsox.sourceforge.net/
Download: http://sourceforge.net/projects/in-ffsox/files/

No trouble with DirectShow and media splitter. The FFSoX Player plug-in decodes all formats supported by FFmpeg directly in Winamp's memory.

After installing the plug-in you have to download the latest shared win32 build of FFmpeg and substute the FFmpeg DLLs coming with the plug-in (cf. here).

Also you have to add "FLV" to the plug-in's preferences.

Old thread revived.... why?

I hope someone isn't trying to post-pump there way to 20 posts so they can put spam in their sig/homepage.....
because if you do, you will be banned instantly.... so it's not really worth it, lol.

As from Winamp 5.58 and later, Winamp's default in_flv now has the capability of handling all vp6, vp8, h263 and h264 content.

vp6 & vp8 are supported by default.
h263 requires the Extra FLV Decoder form the Winamp Essentials Pack
h264 is Winamp Pro only.

Update requirement for Win7

I wasn't able to get flv files to use flvsplitter on Windows7 until I disabled Microsoft DTV-DVD decoders using the instructions from:
http://www.makeyoutubevideo.com/disa...eodecoder.html

Some of my FLV files would sound very distorted until I disabled this. I hope this helps others because I spent a lot of time retrying the FLV instructions with no luck.

I have started my quest for complete hair removal! Thanks Being Hairless!

FYI, here's an alternative you may find useful.

There is a Winamp thread (here) that explains how to play files that require 3rd party plugins.
In that thread there is a link named Preferred DirectShow Filters Tool that eventually leads to a tool called Win7DSFilterTweaker.
The tool is recommended for getting Windows 7 to use ffdshow instead of the default Windows decoders.
Among other tweaks, it can also be used to disable/enable the Microsoft DTV-DVD decoders on Windows 7.
Download here.

I did try Win7DSFilterTweaker also but I couldn't find an option for flash.

Right, there is no specific mention of flv files.
But if you click on "Tweaks" you will see the options to disable / enable the Microsoft DTV-DVD decoders.
