    I'm not sure, but I think you may be confusing Flash and FLV. You may not be aware but Flash and FLV are not the same thing (in fact, as I've tried to explain, they are very different things).

    This may help:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adobe_Flash

    I am quiet aware, thank you. For the porpoise of this discussion they are linked. As far as I am concerned Flash is one way to play .flv video, and this is another. You dont want flash, and you dont want the .flv container either.

    I wonder why.

    Yup, so FLV is a container that has recently announced support for H.264, which is a dang-sight better than H.263/spark. Again, I'm not so much caring what because the cross-platform video standard so much as I'm hoping something (good quality) does. If FLV H.264 wins out, no worries. So far, however, from where I'm sitting (and making content), the MP4 container has more adoption (Microsoft, Apple, Sony are huge, and Xbox, PS3, and Apple TV is what's hooking into the living room).

    And having FLV support is a lot less worrisome than having Flash support. My movie file is a lot less likely to try to access Core Location to find out where I'm going and what advertising my website should be showing me than SWF...

    just to report....

    THe Palm OS version of Coreplayer 1.2.4 stutters on videos that previously played smoothly on 1.2.3.

    Just a heads up.

    The 1.2.4 version now out on WM plays flv pretty nicely on my Tilt.

    Surur,

    What's the procedure? Does it render them inline in websites, or do you download them / save them and then open them like any other video file?

    Download, save and open, just like any other video file, which is convenient if you have a video play list.

    Coreplayer already doses the dedicated YouTube player thing, but this ads an offline element which is much more convenient.

    Basically its a cheap and easy source of music videos for example.
