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…
- Riva FLV Encoder 2 (http://www.download.com/Riva-FLV-Encoder/3000-2140-10320097.html)
- SUPER 2007 Build 23 (http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Video/Encoders-Converter-DIVX -Related/SUPER.shtml or http://download.videohelp.com/download/SUPERsetup200723.exe)
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.
