i downloaded a .FLV file but i can't get it to play. i have FLV Player and i have CinemaForge, but neither will recognize the file. CinemaForge says it doesn't know what kind of file it is (it says under the icon "FLV File") and FLV Player just won't do anything. i've deleted the file, redownloaded it and restarted (not necessarilly in that order), but i still can't get it to work. i've never had trouble like this before. can someone help me out? thanks

well....i just did that, but it still won't work. i've downloaded FLV files in the past...but this one just refuses to work. i just need to convert it into .mov, but i can't get it to do anything....FLV player just doesn't do anything...and CinemaForge says it doesn't recognize the file type. i'm confused...

If you have another file with that extension, it plays, right? Then I'm guessing that particular file is corrupted somehow.

I agree with Johanna, it is probably corrupt if you downloaded it then try downloading it again.
