Why Do Lightworks FLV Import Issues Happen?

Q: Does Lightworks recognise .flv files? ----from Reddit

No. FLV is not on the list of Lightworks-supported file formats. However, FLV is not supported in Lightworks, which doesn’t mean that you cannot import FLV videos into Lightworks.

In fact, the FLV format is incompatible with most video editors and players. For example, you will receive an error message when attempting to play flv. files on Windows with the native Windows Media Player. And in most cases, the file import and playback failures should be due to incompatible format or codec missing.

So, you can convert the FLV file to a format that Lightworks use. And this can be easily done with WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro.
