MPEG-1 (M1V) is a multimedia format that is published as the ISO/IEC-1172 standard. It is an older format that relies on lossy compression, and it was designed to compress VHS and CD video files. Of all the formats that use lossy compression, M1V is the most widely-compatible with players, software, and hardware.
When opening an M1V file, it is best to use VLC media player. This media player can play across many operating systems, including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and Unix.
If there are problems opening an M1V file, then try the following. Verify the player software is most current version by visiting the player’s web site and searching for MPEG-1 video file updates. On Windows, ensure the correct application associates with the file by following these instructions. If all else fails, make sure the file is not infected with malware by scanning it with VirusTotal.

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.
