ConvertHow to convert Flash Movies[tags]convert Flash Movies[/tags] (.FLV) to .AVI or .MPG or .MOV or .MP4 etc..

Sites like Youtube, Cinematube, tv-links, etc.. Offer free and Realplayer Download Plugin lets you from ANY site on the internet, great isn’t it?

Here is the problem, these videos are downloaded in flash format i.e. .flv format which is not supported by traditional media players. This article will help you convert files in flash (.flv) to .avi, .mpeg or in any other desired format.

I did a little bit of research and found two free yet useful products which will help us convert media files format from .flv to avi or mpg or from .avi, mpg to .flv, etc…

  1. Riva FLV Encoder 2 (
  2. SUPER 2007 Build 23 ( -Related/SUPER.shtml or

I personally recommend “Super 2007 Build 23” as it supports a long list of media formats, offers more control to the user at the time of conversion and is easy to use.

Download Super 2007 Build 23 from Here (The file is fairly huge, 26.7MB)

How to Convert[tags]How to convert[/tags] from .FLV to .AVI or .MPG using SUPER 2007

  1. Once the download is complete, Double click on the file and follow the wizard to install Super 2007 Build 23
  2. Run the software once the installation is complete
  3. From the first option “Select the output container” you can select .avi, .mpg, .mov, .asf, .mp4 and lot of other available formats.
  4. From the second option “Select the output video codec” DivX, XviD, MPEG1, MPEGII, MPEG4, etc…
  5. From the third option “Select the output Audio codec” you can select MP3,AAC, AC3, WAV, etc.

These are the three most important options you have to choose to change the format for the media file but do play around a little bit with the other options to get a high quality video after conversion.

Now select the video you want to convert, you can either drag & drop the media file you want to convert or just right click and select “Add multimedia file(s)” to select the file as shown in the picture below. Once you select the video files you want to convert, hit “Encode (Active Files)” button to start the conversion.

    Hello everybody,

    First thing I want to point out: Why convert in the 1st place.. Watch it in flv format itself; By converting it, you can never get a better quality. And FLV players are available in plenty and recognized widely. Try VLC player, KLite codec packs etc for watching flv.

    If you do want to convert, I recommend using Total Video Converter. You can convert any format to any other format; even video to audio, with wide range of settings.. Never come across anything better, yet..

    Just use a FLV Converter which can convert FLV and YouTube Videos to almost any video formats, with excellent conversion speed and quality, such as converting FLV to MP4, FLV to AVI, FLV to WMV, FLV to MPEG etc. Furthermore, it can also easily convert video files to some popular audio formats, such as WMA, MP3, M4A, AAC, etc.

    If you are looking for a convenient and multifunctional converter to convert FLV files, you need to download SWF & FLV Toolbox.
