The FLV hack only exists in the KH version maintained by Karl.

In case of missing <audio> support, I'd personally recommend to fall
back to something like the Muses player:
It supports AAC, if you must use AAC.

In a world where Flash is finally going away, I don't think there is a
reason for us to support the FLV hack, especially as the above
workaround exists. Muses is even open source!

HTH & Cheers
