If so, the thing will bother you a lot is that all Android devices fail to play these videos. What’s the problem? Well, that’s because videos downloaded from those renowned online video sharing sites are mostly in FLV format, which is not compatible with nearly all Android phones and tablets.


So that means you only have to rely on a computer or laptop to watch videos in FLV format? The answer is absolutely NO! Right here I will share you two effective ways to play FLV videos on your Android device directly: one is using a FLV to MP4 converter to change the video format, while the other is applying an Android FLV player to directly play FLV videos on your Android mobile or tablet. Now let us move on to know the details.
