FLP is a proprietary format used by Fruity Loops Studio software. You need to convert the flp files to other formats such as mp3 in order to use them in other players. Take a look at this link:

Just to clarify my last answer, flp and mp3 are both audio. Flp is just a special audio format that is only used by the Fruity Loops Studio software (This software allows you to modify and add effects to mp3 and other music files). AAC, MP3, WMA, are all examples of different formats of audio files, and all of these are playable in most media players due to how common the formats are. Amazon.com music downloads are in mp3 format (mp3 is the most common and universally compatible format). Itunes music downloads are in AAC format (AAC is a newer format than mp3 and is compatible in most devices these days). WMA is Windows' own music format. So you can see how different software will use different formats. Here's a couple of links with details on Fruity Loops software:
