Hi Rob,

I'm sorry to ask such basic questions - as I am a new user to gnash.

I have a library of downloaded .flv files which I've downloaded from
I would like to play these .flv files on my laptop without an internet
I would like to use a 100% open source flv player, as open source can be
trusted not to have malware.
I came across the gnu gnash project, and it seems like a very promising

I understand your response that the command line gnash can only play
.swf files.
Please provide more details about which open source flv player to run
with gnash,
along with any url's you might know of which show how to integrate it
with gnash
on a Windows environment.

   Gnash doesn't play flv files from the command line, only swf files. 
So you need a flash based media player to run in Gnash, and then you can

play the video just fine. If you use the plugin for Firefox, you can see

the videos when you go to youtube.
