I am a teacher and would like to show some YouTube videos in my Keynote presentations. However, our school blocks YouTube. I can get the YouTube video off the site, but it is in .flv format. How do I convert it to .mov or another format to get it to play in keynote? Are there any free programs (since my school won't pay for it)? Thank you!!

You can do this online via this website: Online FLV Converter - Convert FLV to AVI or many other formats on the fly

Hope this helps

Thank you very much! I am trying it but it keeps saying the download filed. Is this common? Should I just keep trying over and over?

Quicktime Pro will convert .flv to .mov very simply. Drag the .flv file to QTP (not sure if the basic version does this), and then Save As, where you will be prompted to do so as a .mov or a reference movie. I have a feeling you may need Perian to assist QT.

I have just discovered the joys of QT and particularly the Perian plugin. You can do anything with Perian! No more mucking around with online converters (which are always busy or slow or down) to convert flv videos or any other format. Perian is the most amazing plugin you can get with QT. I can't believe I've never heard of it til now. Used in conjunction with the Fast Video Download plugin for Firefox. You can download and convert any video on youtube or elsewhere.
