Swf goes back to the says of Win311 flv does not. I can play flv and
download and save them to play again using a firefox plug in. If you
just want to play them stand alone use the file manager to select and
open them. When Totem does not find the plug in you will be prompted to
search for it and then all the work is done for you.
