My sugessition is better convert flv files to avi and then try using it in vb. This sounds good. or try any third party tools or ocx are available to solve your need.

hi,

Please ensure that you can run flash files using the shockwave flash (flash*.ocx) in vb. But if you want to run flash videos better try as I already said.
