Frequently Asked Questions for Animate Video File (*.FLV)

What is a FLV file?

FLV files are also known as Flash Video Files. Most FLV files use Adobe Flash Player or Adobe Air to transmit audio/video over the Internet. Most embedded videos on the Internet are FLV files, but with the introduction of HTML5 videos, many streaming services have dropped usage of FLV files. You can sometimes see FLV files with a F4V file extension. FLV files aren’t as common now, but we still support them at Sonix.
