How Does Windows Media Player Play FLV?

Summary: When you open an FLV file the player may give you a warning message saying that it doesn't recognize the file extension. This article will help you get out of that issue.

As soon as one tries to play a FLV file with the help of Windows Media Player, a message will appear saying that the file can't be opened because the extension is invalid. Properly configured codecs needs to be installed to play FLV files using Windows Media Player. The formats supported by windows are .asf, .wmx, .au, .snd, .mov, .m4a, .dvr-ms, .asx, .m4v, .mp4, .wpl, .mpg, .miv, .mpa, .mp2, .mpeg, .3g2, .adts, .adt, .3gp2, .aiff, .wms, .3gp, .mp3, .m3u, .mid, .midi, .mpv2, .cda, .rmi, .wav, .wax, .aif, .wmv, .ivf, .3gpp, .wm, .mpc, .aifi, .aac, .wvx, .wma, .wm2, .m2ts, .mp4v, .avi and .wmd.

Play FLV after Installing FLV codecs for Windows Media Player

WMP uses codecs to play media files. Codecs of many formats are inbuilt in WMP to open files of that format. Yet the codec of FLV needs to be downloaded by the user to run FLV files on WMP. After successfully installing the codec, you will be able to run files with .flv extension in your WMP.

If one is unable to view their files on Window Media Player because the file has .flv extension, then 
Pavtube Video Converter can be used to convert the videos in the format supported by the Window Media Player. In fact, this program can be used to complete conversion between various formats, including FLV, AVI, ASF, MOV, M4V, WMV, MKV, Xvid, MP4, and so on.

What Is the Difference Between 1080p and 1080i?

Summary: We will be distinguish the 1080p and 1080i in this article in the aspect of resolution, frames, fields, frequencies. And then give the solution on how to edit both 1080p and 1080i video in FCP X/7/6.

Q: I have seen many times resolution of 1080p and I know that mean 1080 pixels but sometime I also seen option on the HDTV is 1080i. So I want to know the exact difference between them and is 1080i video quality available for the laptop too?

I have Googled 1080i some times rather than 1080p. Is there any difference between them? Or they represent the same?

The question is specifically: What is the difference between 1080p and 1080i? so I will start by outlining the main similarities and differences, I’ll add some tips on how to choose the best format and then I will proceed to explain the problems that I found here.


Both 1080p and 1080i have 1080 horizontal lines of vertical resolution which with a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9 results in a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels (2.1 megapixels). It is not true that 1080i has a lower vertical resolution than 1080p.

Frames vs. Fields

1080p is a frame-based or progressive-scan video where you are dealing with frames. You have frame rate and it is expressed in frames per second.

1080i is a field-based or interlaced or interleaved video where you are dealing with fields. You have field rate and it is expressed in fields per second.

A field contains half of the lines of the frame, either even lines or odd lines, and if one field is composed of even lines, then the next one will be composed of odd lines and so on.


1080p has a frame rate of 25 frames per second for TV in PAL countries, 30/1.001 frames per second for TV in NTSC countries and 24 frames per second for cinematography.

1080i has a field rate of 50 fields per second for TV in PAL countries and 60/1.001 fields per second in NTSC countries.

How to edit both 1080p and 1080i video in FCP X/7/6 smoothly?

For whatever video resolution, frames, fields, frequencies, we got the ultimate usage is make it more vivid or more moving for playback. We always want to add some video effects in the video, though FCP, Avid, Premiere or other NLEs you familiar with. Any editor have it’s natively format for editing, such as Apple Prores for FCP, MEEG-2 for Premiere, DNxHD for Avid. Here we choose FCP as example.

In order to edit 1080p and 1080i video in Fcp smoothly. First you should check out the format your 1080p or 1080i video is. In generally speaking the video may not codec in Apple Prores, you should convert the video format into Apple ProRes for FCP.

However, things would be a little more complicated when you work with the DJI Phantom 3 4K in Final Cut Pro X/7/6.

How to fix a general error in final cut pro 7?

Summary: In this article I will show you the best way to fix the general error in final cut pro 7 when you import some Canon video clip for editing. If you in the same trouble, just follow the article and you will fix the problem in short time.

Q:Everytime I try to work with .mov files from my Canon, final cut pro gives me a general error after I've added a couple of clips to the timeline, it used to be no problem but I don't know how to solve the general error... any help?

I once edited a whole project  in FCP 7 using the native Canon 5D files and while it started well enough, it got more instable as the timeline filled and renders got glitches between edits.

Using files straight from camera is ideal and works very well with Adobe Premiere or Final Cut X, and I highly recommend switching to one of those. You have to know FCP 7 is 32 bits, doesn't support more than one CPU, and is no longer supported by Apple. Chances are, the latest version of FCP 7 is older than your camera and it will stay that way forever. And unless you are using a computer from 6 years ago, you are also waiting way longer than you have to for your renders.

If you absolutely want to keep using FCP 7, you are going to have to convert your footage to good old proRes beforehand. You can use FCP's media manager or Apple Compressor for that. 

Alternatively, do yourself a favour and get a modern NLE like FCPX which handles and optimises files from almost all cameras automatically. As FCP 7 are not workable with Canon files natively, if you want to load Canon files to FCP (including FCP 7 and FCP X), first you need to convert Canon files to FCP 7 friendly codec like Apple Prores. of course, losslessly. To do so, you need a professional Video Converter to help.

How are Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere different?

Summary: As for the professional NLEs, a few years ago the answer was simple FCP or Premiere. Over the past 2 years the industry has gone through some major changes. Here we talk about the different between the Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere and give the solution of how to import any video into them for editing natively.

Apple abandoned FCP7 and launched an all new NLE called FCPX. It was a radical change and it broke many professional post houses workflows. This created a major backlash for Apple. FCPX has improved since launch and some Pros are using it.

Adobe Premiere has gained enormous market share from FCP users. Many loyal FCP editors refer to Premiere Pro CS6 as the FCP8 they wanted but did not get. Premiere has become far more professional, stable and powerful over the past couple of years.

Since the release of Final Cut Pro X, there have been a number of professional video editors moving to Adobe Premiere Pro and Avid Media Composer, due to Apple's seeming lack of interest in the professional market.

I'm not to sure about the recent updates for FCP, but last I heard there were a great many features that were considered necessary tools for professional work that Apple had decided not to include.

I've been cutting on Adobe Premiere Pro for years now, and I love everything about it. The Mercury Playback Engine makes rendering simple effects unnecessary, and the integration with the rest of the Adobe Creative Suite is simply phenomenal. 

Premiere Pro let's you edit most video formats natively (P2, Red, Arri, Canon XF, etc.) without having to transcode into an intermediate codec like Apple ProRes.

In the rest of the article we talk about how to import any video into them for editing natively.
