PartI. FLV VS. SWF

What is FLV?

FLV files (Flash Video Files), a binary file format, are composed of a video bit stream and an audio bit stream and deliver web video over the Internet with Macromedia Flash Player. FLV files are considered to be streaming video files. If you put FLV file in website, you don't have to download the entire file before playing. FLV content may also be embedded within SWF files. The audio and video data within FLV files are encoded in the same way as they are within SWF files. Unlike SWF format, FLV do not have maximum of 16000 frames limitation and ideally for large video file size. Notable users of the FLV format files are YouTube, Yahoo video, Google Video, Reuters.com, My Space, Facebook video etc.

What is SWF?

SWF (Shockwave Flash)- The file format SWF is a vector graphics file format, not streaming media. SWF file can be played directly in web browser, such as Internet Explorer. However, FLV file can not be playback directly, because it requires a separate SWF file which reads the video content from FLV. The SWF file that plays FLV file is called online flash player.

Can't ope a protected movie error while opening


You may need to reinstall the Flash Player. The copy that you have might have been corrupted.
Try the below task and i am cent% sure it would work.

Do you have jv16 Power Tools installed? There's a link below if you
don't. With that program you can go into Registry Tools > Registry
File Types and disassociate .swf files with Windows by removing it.
http://www.oldversion.com/program.php?n=jv16
You should uninstall Flash Player, they have a utility for that
here:
http://www.macromedia.com/support/fl.../playerfaq.htm
Reinstall the latest version of Flash Player and hopefully it will
automatically reassociate itself with .swf files.

Enjoy the game where name is game... ;)
