Free/cheap VJ software with FLV support and sound output?

Looking for free or cheap VJ software with FLV support and sound output.

I have the idea to do some sort of vj-ing / movie screening live show where I would mix together videos I found on youtube and elsewhere (think "live version of TV Carnage with faster editing and more effects").

But I need the software to do this. None of the VJing tools I found on the internet have audio output, which I need. As far as the other features go, I'm not too picky - just the ability to play back FLV files, some mixing, titling and a few wipes.

My notebook is a 2GHz Pentium with 1GB running Windows XP and fortunately having an external monitor connector which can be configured to behave as extended desktop, so that I can use the LCD panel as my previewing monitor and the external output for the beamer.

Any hints on (preferably free / cheap) software or any other tips are greatly appreciated.

So VLC media player plays flv's natively, and also converts them. It seems that it'd be easiest to simply convert the flash videos to a format natively supported by whatever VJ software you currently use.

After that, it's a matter of getting VJ software that supports audio, which I'm surprised if you're having trouble finding such a thing. Are you really just after the ability to have a large playlist of videos and be able to rapidly select/loop segments of the video with some basic effects, in real-time?

Yes, that's basically what I'm looking for.
