AFAIK, it doesn't. Check out VLC Media Player. It plays FLV files (and countless others).

It does if you use the Windows 7 Codec Pack. That's what I use...and I can play pretty much any file I want in both WMP12 32-bit and 64-bit editions. Granted if you want the 64-bit version, you gotta download the x64 codecs too.

Isn't there an Adobe player available for download, which supports these also?

... and I don't just mean one for reading the flash contents of websites either!

Having asked that question, I have just "Googled" the following page, which explains a lot : Adobe - Media Player ... which has helped to reasure me!
