Hi,

I don't know if it is adequate to ask this question here, I am going
to find a software to play compressed flash video, the URL is got from
a webpage like youtube. I tried mplayer but it says libavcodec doesn't
support this format.

I can play it in firefox using the flash plugin from macromedia, but i
want to find an open source one!

Thanks.
