    Okay, so for an on-line video submission people are required to submit movies in .flv (flash video) format. I'm using a trial version of Squeeze to compress the movie, so that's all good. But I can't figure out how to play the compressed movie to save my life. It's on my HDD but nothing will open it. I've tried to d/l a couple of players but no dice. I can play flash movies on the 'net, but I can't play the one sitting on my HDD.

    Any suggestions?

    I downloaded the stand alone player but still no luck. The .flv movies I create have the flash player icon associated w/them now, and when I double click them the player launches but the movies don't come up or play or anything.

    nightdweller25,
    Safari (I haven't tried any other browsers yet) doesn't recognize them as a file it can execute.

    Anyone use Squeeze to create .flv movies and are able to view them?
