    .flv files

    Hello from Illinois, I have many downloaded You tube files in .flv extension. Is there any app that will allow me to play and send these my HDMI output to my TV. Failing that, is there a converter that will change these files to something playable with my Thrive? Thanks for any input

    welcome ! i believe either MX Player or Mobo Player (both free in Play store)will play flv files - and if you are looking for a converter, DVDCatalyst is the best in town - one click conversion for almost all tablets - top notch support (right here on our forums) and very well priced - i believe its still only 10 bucks -

    I have a lot of videos I have downloaded in flv and mp4 from various sites like YouTube and MX Player has always worked great for them.

    Another question about MX or Mobo player ; will they play files on a connected flash drive or sd card? Or do I have to install the flv files in my Thrive memory?

    MX Player will play from local, sd, or external , although I have had issues with stuttering on an external drive with very high bit-rate files.

    MX installed, recognized and played .flv files on my SD card and a 64 gig thumb drive. Thanks so much, this will be a major use of my Thrive and it's HDMI out.

    I used mine for the same until I decided to move my PC into my bedroom and just run the HDMI from there. I still play movies on it for trips and such though and it works great.

    I use Handbrake on my pc to convert any type of movie file to h.254 that is the native format for thrive and many other devices ie Roku. HandBrake is a free app and very easy to use no need to change any of the defualt settings just pick your source file and tell it were the new file will be created. I don't know why ppl in this forum keep on pushing DVD catalyist lol. I use the stock media player that came with Dales ICS 4.04 ROM it works great and has more options then some other players I have tried out it also sees my Plex Media server..
