Suggestion for a good FLV player?

I need a good FLV player, and I can't find one. Please help.
I know I could just convert them, but I don't want to.

This was one of my original choices and this may sounds stupid, but I really want a player where you can click on the file and a new or another window will appear. And with VLC it opens up the same window. Thanks again though!

Why not change that setting?

Go to:
Settings >> Preferences... >> Advanced

And tick the "Advanced options" tickbox (bottom-right corner). Untick the "One instance when started from file" tickbox and press "Save". Then when you next double-click a file to open in VLC, VLC should automatically open a new instance.
