Greetings, magnetic_kisser !

.flv file is a Flash Player file.  If you really mean to download and view this file, use FLV Player
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/WEB-Design/Flash/FLV-Player.shtmlhttp://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/WEB-Design/Flash/FLV-Player.shtml

Are you sure you don't mean the downloaded file is .swf? What is probably happening here is you downloaded the flash video file without the loading swf file. Without it's loading swf file, you won't be able to view it.


Best wishes!

Oops.  I read "fiv" instead of "flv". So here's the real deal:
