    Specs:
    Mac Mini: OSX 10.9.5 Mavericks, 8GB Ram, Samsung Series 5 SC570 monitor, Seagate external drive.
    Can't open .flv file-HELP!
    Running Snow Leopard
    Have Quick Time 7 installed

    Went to Dailymotion and downloaded a video to the hard drive in to the Downloads section.
    When I went to open it with QT 7 I get the following message:
    "This movie can not be opened"
    "The file is not a movie file"

    All suggestions appreciated.
    Many Thanks.

    1. Ue Google it is your friend.

    2. You would have then found this:-

    Free FLV Player for Mac and PC
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Why are people not recommending Perian any longer? I don't waste time with other players and just Quicktime with perian. MOST here used to.

    I am not 100% sure...but I don't think it is being developed or supported any longer. Some of the stuff I read in Google didn't mention any OSX's since OS 10.6. I hope I am wrong. It is still available for download.

    Production has ceased but the current version works perfectly as always in 10.8.4.

    The Perian folks recommend this as a player.

    NicePlayer-0.97.9-lion.zip - niceplayer - NicePlayer Lion Preview - fullscreen, borderless multi-engine player - Google Project Hosting

    I tried it and it works well.
