If you are an active web video consumer, you know that almost all websites store video in the FLV format (so-called Flash Video). In spite of its growing popularity, however, FLV is not supported by most mobile devices and, even if you want to play FLV video on your PC, you would still have to install additional codecs.
WMV is a video format specially developed for storing and watching video on Windows devices. It is also supported by many mobile devices, including Archos, Microsoft Zune, Xbox 360, Windows Mobile phones, and others. Once you have the right software, such as Movavi Video Converter, you can easily change FLV to WMV for ease of watching on the device of your choice. Just download the suitable version of the program and follow the guide below.
