The FLV (Flash Video) format is very widely used for Web video, especially for such popular video hosting sites and social networks as YouTube and Facebook, so it’s often the go-to format for sharing video over the Internet. If you want to share your AVI, MPEG, WMV files, or DVDs via a video sharing service, you will need to convert them into a web-friendly format such as FLV or MP4. Likewise, if you've saved an online video in the Flash format, be aware that not every media player supports it, so you'll need to convert the FLV file to a more flexible format.
Movavi has one of the fastest, simplest ways to do this! Using Movavi’s FLV Converter, you can upload your video to YouTube or Facebook, and even extract audio from any movie and save it as an MP3 file. If you convert FLV to AVI, 3GP, or MP4, you’ll be able to watch it on Nokia and Samsung phones, iPods, and Sony PSPs. This multifunctional software will help you to not only convert video, audio, and DVDs but also rotate, trim, and compress videos, add subtitles, and more! Download this handy application for Windows or Mac for free and see for yourself – video conversion is easy!
Install the Movavi FLV Converter
Download and open the installation file, then install the software. It’s much more than a FLV conversion program – you can use this tool to manage your media library too.
Choose a Video for Conversion
Click Add Media in the upper left corner of the FLV converter interface and then Add Video. Choose the FLV files you want to convert or the videos you want to convert to FLV. You can choose one or multiple files and convert them to any format in one pass.
Convert Your File and Save It
To choose an output file format, go to Video > FLV (Flash Video) in the lower part of the converter interface and select the resolution that best suits your needs. If you want to convert FLV video to a format compatible with PSP, iPad, iPod, or other devices, go to Devices and choose the specific device from the list.
There's also an option to select the preset automatically – just connect your device to the computer and click the Cell Phone icon.
Start the Video Compression
Choose the folder in which you want to place your converted files by clicking the Folder icon. If you use Windows and want to upload your videos to YouTube right after conversion, just click the Share button in the upper right corner, select YouTube, Facebook, and check the YouTube box. Then, click Convert to start the process, which may take anywhere from one to ten minutes, depending on the number and size of files you convert.
When the process is finished, all the videos will be saved, and the folder containing the converted videos will open automatically.
