how to play *.flv files

i want to play flv files in my plugin from url.
----> sound is OK, but video doesn't work

in log is this error:
eServiceMP3::m_errorInfo.missing_codec = video/x-flash-video

I have tried to install package gst-plugin-flv_0.10.30-r0.0_mipsel.ipk but result is still same.

here is my code:
self.videoclipurl = ""
myreference = eServiceReference(4097,0,self.videoclipurl)
myreference.setName("test"), myreference, self.lastservice, infoCallback = self.showVideoInfo, nextCallback = self.getNextEntryVideo, prevCallback = self.getPrevEntryVideo)

Do I need install something else or I have to change something in my code?

Look this:
Dream Explorer (NEW: play FLV-files now)

Is open source, you can take a look in the source ;)
You have also to install also the gstreamer-flv-extension.

I have installed and tried your plugin but without success (incl.gstreamer-flv-extension).
Sound is OK but wihout video (blackscreen) - this error in console: eServiceMP3::m_errorInfo.missing_codec = video/x-flash-video

Can you download this file a try it in your box ?

yes ..... you're right. your file don't go.
you can not play all files.
some go, others not.
that depends on the voideocontent.
here an example of what goes.

There's enough free software in the net, which is able to transcode such files to f.i. mpeg.

It's not possible. I'm donwloading that file directly from web url in my plugin and I can not covert flv files outside.
