Adobe Flash MP4 Multimedia (F4V) is a rather ubiquitous video container format because globally, most viewers of online videos use technology that is designed to play on Adobe Flash Player. In fact, F4V is often referred to as “Flash Video.” An F4V container compresses multimedia files with a codec and facilitates delivery of the files as streaming audio and video over the Internet.
On most platforms, F4V files open in Adobe Flash Player by default. On Microsoft Windows OS, Adobe AIR might be the default player. For guaranteed results on Mac OS X, and Linux/Unix, open F4V files with VLC media player.
It is important to know that Apple iOS devices do not support the Adobe Flash Player plugin. However, Puffin Web Browser is a free option that can bypass iOS’s restrictions.

Flash Live Video (FLV) is, as the name suggests, a type of Flash video. It is a popular format that delivers high-quality, well-synchronized multimedia content, primarily over the Internet. It is also a media container, and as such, uses codecs to compress file size. FLV uses the open standard ISO/IEC 14496-12:2008, also known as the ISO base media file format, which offers the advantage of flexibility and independence.
By default, FLV opens in Adobe products, namely Animate Creative Cloud (Animate CC) and Flash. It opens best in Adobe Flash version 7 and above. FLV does not support chapters or subtitles, but it does support metadata tags.
Since FLV is based on an open standard, it can open in many non-Adobe products. Other programs in which FLV can open include VLC media player, Zoom Player, RealNetworks RealPlayer Cloud, Eltima Elmedia Player, and others.
