    the supported video formats are
    .MP4,
    .ASF,
    .WMV,
    .AVI,
    .3GP,
    .3G2,
    .M4V,

    I did a small research and it is like cannot play flv file extension. But you can always convert the songs to another format such as mp4, avi and others. Go to CNET and browse through the converters available and choose the one convenient. It is easier if you copy the files to a computer. And follow this link to see other conversion software. There are a lot of other file types supported so just convert them.
