Flash Videos (.flv) are Upside Down

Post by babakan » Sat Oct 13, 2007 1:00 am

I just installed XnView.

It plays .flv flash videos but they are upside down. Is there any way to fix this. (Other video formats are OK).

All you need is FFDShow, codec packs are dangerous.

:) Hello Chris !

• Right, but this one is “clean”. It's installed here for ten months.

- The only issue was recently… a false positive from Avira AntiVir !
- They fixed it.

• I've too the FLV Player 1.3.3 which works fine (IMHO, the display is better than in XnView…)

I know, have you tried running FLV's through MPC HC?
Works really well :)

K-lite codecs fixed flv upside down, but I was getting error messages trying to [lay wmv's occaisionally, so I restored my system to previous configuration and started over.

Is any of this a clue......
Windows media player, MP classic and Zoomplayer all play flv upside down (and reversed). GOM player, however, plays them properly.

What could be the difference? Do the three that play upside down share a common codec while GOM has its own? If so, is there a way to change just the flv codec and to what?

You would need to know what codec the players were using before you install ed the codec pack that fixed this, my guess is either VP6 or Nero's codecs.

How do I determine which codecs are installed or being used by the different players? I do have nero installed.

Load the FLV into GSpot and will tell you what renders the video and audio streams.

more info since my last post......
Tried a different computer running the same , latest version of WMP (11). Plays flv correctly. So, I assume (?) some program has installed a codec in the first computer that is the proble, how to find it and delete it? BTW, Gspot shows the same codec forthe same file on both computers. The first computer has 257 codecs installed, the second has 199.
