Comment (by barsnick):

 To me it seems these files can be decoded just fine using
 ffmpeg -f flv -i 1.xv -f null -
 (or remuxed to a file which apparently contains the complete video and is
 perfectly playable).

 Just the information from the scrambled FLV header is missing:
 [flv @ 0x55baa1f2b240] Read FLV header error, input file is not a standard
 FLV format, first PreviousTagSize0 always is 0
 [flv @ 0x55baa1f2b240] Packet mismatch 32 11 11
 implying you can't probe bitrate or duration.

 Would it not suffice to recognize these files properly as FLV in the first
