Ping Tim,

I installed a later version of ffdshow, but some flv files still did
not play.

I downloaded and installed a later version of FLVSplitter, and all
files now play.

I had the choice of installing either the Release version or the
Unicode version of Splitter. I chose the Release version (using Vista,
32 bit). Was this the correct version to install under Vista?

Any idea what FLVSplitter.ax actually does?

Thanks

It shouldn't make any difference, unless you are working with filenames
containing (very) special characters (such as Chinese letters). In that
case, only the Unicode version will be able to handle the filenames.

A splitter is a category of DirectShow filters: "A splitter filter
splits an input stream into two or more outputs, typically parsing the
input stream along the way. For example, the AVI Splitter parses a byte
stream into separate video and audio streams."
See for
more info.
