I have many FLV files and when I play them using Windows Media Player or GOM and try to click on the bar to advance to another part of the video, I find the video pausing for a long time before it responds and plays again.

What codec or player can I use to fast forward through my FLV files?

VLC always works for me –  Ramhound Jul 18 '12 at 15:52
We don't even know which codecs you have installed and which alternatives you tried. Do you rather want to solve the actual issue of not being able to forward in GOM? –  slhck Jul 18 '12 at 16:01
@slhck I want to solve slow forward/backward response for flv –  Welliam Jul 18 '12 at 16:14

VLC player is pretty much the standard suggestion, since it bundles a lot of codecs into the install so you don't have to find them all yourself.

If you find yourself just wanting a codec, I believe FFDShow is able to parse FLVs. If you want a codec pack, I usually recommend CCCP.
