What does anyone use to play videos with the .flv extension?  In the other computer, an XP machine, I had installed the k-lite codec pack which allowed me to use windows media player to watch these videos.  I managed to save some of my videos onto a flash drive.  This computer is running Windows 7.  I have no idea what version of windows media player is on it, it's all new to me. Any ideas what I should use?

May wife uses windows 7 and she has windows media play installed.  It came pre-installed.  Go out to M$ site on the windows 7 machine and see what it offers.  The have it set up to only show you what you can install.  I think you will have to install the media center.

VLC media player is a free download and will play any format I've ever come across.

My experiences with VLC have all been good, with one exception. It seems to want to stay open in the memory on the work laptop (win7) and it eats memory. Not a biggie, when done viewing, I just ctrl+alt+del and kill the process.
