Trouble playing Flash Video Files
Flash Video support has been added (provided through ffmpeg).
To view .flv files you will need version 0.8.4a. Download and install the latest version here.
VLC still has problems with a few .flv files. If you have problems playing a file in VLC you might be able to change it to an avi using ffmpeg. See VLC HowTo/Transcode from Flash Video format.
VLC 0.8.6 provided enhanced Flash Video support on all platforms, so it is probably worth to update if you experience problems with prior releases.
