- Starting from this version, VideoCacheView will read these additional cache data files.

Changes for v2.46 - v2.50

- Many videos are not saved properly in the cache by IE10, and thus VideoCacheView will not be able to extract them.
- In order to ensure that all cache data of IE10 is saved to the disk, it's highly recommended to log off and then log on again, before using VideoCacheView with IE10. If you don't do that, VideoCacheView may hang or crash...

VLC Media Player has the ability to play the entire merged .flv file, though it initially detects only the first fragment.
Changes for v2.38 - v2.40
