Corrupt FLV Only Winamp Can Play

Hi all, I'd hugely appreciate some help here. I have a ton of reference videos that for my music studies which are all in .FLV format. These videos only play in Winamp and they're corrupt when I try to play them in any other player.

I'm wondering if anyone has come across this issue. Is it possible to convert them to another video format using Winamp?

I'm just worried because I want to have these in a format that's more stable and it worries me that only Winamp can play them. Thanks for any suggestions.

handbrake might work on converting them.

Current Setup: Windows 10 Pro, Sound Blaster Z, Logitech Z-5500, Winamp v5.666.3516

Get wacup

I'll definitely look into that when WACUP becomes available, but until then if anyone can even guess as to why this is happening, it'd be helpful.

I mean really, why is it that Winamp is the only player out of several I've tried, that can play these videos flawlessly? Nothing else works.

An analysis by ffmpeg might be helpfull. If handbrake doesn't report why then try ffmpeg. If you have issues using ffmpeg the post the offending file and maybe somebody can look into it.
