How to Change FLV to MP4 and Vice Versa
Even though HTML5 is gradually replacing FLV (Flash Video) as the standard for streaming media over the Internet, FLV is still used by over one billion people worldwide for embedded video and on social networks such as Facebook or YouTube. However, to be played on a PC or Mac, FLV requires that you install additional codecs, and many mobile devices don't support this format at all. So if you want to watch a video you've downloaded from the Web on your computer or mobile device, make sure to convert the video to a more universal format such as MP4 or MPEG-4. Movavi Video Converter will help you get this done in no time.
To convert FLV to MP4 using Movavi Video Converter, download the program for Windows or Mac and follow the five easy steps below.
Install the FLV-to-MP4 Converter on Your Computer
Download and run the installation file for Movavi Video Converter. Follow the instructions on the screen to install the program.
Add the Video Files You Want to Convert
To add video files for conversion, click the Add Media button in the upper left corner of the interface, then choose Add Video, and select the files you want to convert.
Edit the Uploaded Files (Optional)
Before conversion, you can make changes in the files you’ve added via the built-in editing tool. To access it, click the Edit button in the file description.
Among the tabs in the new window, choose Stabilization to reduce shakiness in your videos. Choose Audio to reduce background noise or otherwise alter the sound volume in the files. Open the tab Adjustments to change the parameters of brightness, saturation, contrast, and others. In the tabs Subtitles and Watermark, you can insert upload subtitles or add a watermark, respectively. Choose either Trim, Crop, or Rotate to get rid of unwanted details, cut away the edges of your videos, or rotate the footage.
Compress the FLV Files (Optional)
You can reduce the size of particular large files by using the converter. Click the file size value in the description section. In the box that opens, select the desired quality, bitrate, and size values. Finally, hit Apply.
Set MP4 as the Output Format
Click the Video tab. Choose the MP4 preset group, then the appropriate preset. If you want to transform FLV into MP4 for compatibility with your mobile device, click the Devices tab and then locate your device model.
To convert MP4 to FLV, simply choose FLV as the output preset.
