My guess is that VLC should be able to play your FLV just fine, since there really isn't any format it can't at least make an attempt at doing.

You also asked a different question in there, though, which was what to use for playing videos with decent subtitles (by this I assume you mean SSA-formatted softsubs in MKV videos and such). For that, I would direct you to the Playback forum at http://www.animesuki.com/ in the thread called "How to play fansubs on your Mac" (or something like that), where you will find detailed instructions on getting MPlayer to do them 100% correctly as well as an easy installer app to do most of the work for you.

If all you meant with the subtitles was that there were subtitles in the FLV, though, you can ignore the MPlayer bit. I hope this helps. As for converting, ffmpegx might be worth giving a shot since I've yet to see a video it couldn't convert to another format.
