Teachers in pc schools often download at home and bring the *.flv file to school and show it or put it on a moodle server to get round blocking

Playing youtube video in the xo is jumpy but sort of watchable, the audio is ok on some(older?) files but repeats jumpily on some (newer?)files

XO (0.82) wont play saved *.flv files
"no activity can open this object video/x-flv"
