  • Hi, there have no any 3-rd party package.

    Even paid package.

    I have already spend a month to survey this topic.

    You have several way to implement.

    1.Using Custom Media Foundation to build custom decoder, but really complex(You may need write some native C++.)

    2.Using App contract to call other support FLV/MKV(Like "PressPlay Video"、"K-Lite for Windows"、"VLC media Player"


    3.Call external WebPage to play, you may need write a website can receive flv source, finally I using this method to solve this problem, not perfect but can use.
