    FLV video question...
    Hi all,

    I don't work with FLV container video very often, so I was hoping someone might be able to offer some guidance...

    I was given an flv file that the person wanted back as an FLV file, but some footage trimmed off. I could easily trim the footage within Quicktime Pro, but my problem is getting it back to flv. I tried using ffmpegx, and it bombed out complaining about the video stream in the mov file that quicktime pro created (since I couldn't find a way to export to flv from quicktime).

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get footage back out to flv? Using Adobe suite is not an option (I don't have tons of money to toss at this), and if you're gonna suggest scam-soft like Aiseesoft or iSkysoft - don't bother

    Ok, I guess you didn't get what I was looking for - a program that will do a conversion well. If you read my post, you would have seen I had tried using a free converter I knew about. I need suggestions on a good converter that is either free or cheap that has good success - not a post telling me to "download a conversion program".

    Oh my, how did you find that?? I've heard so much about that program, and had been curious about it and was really bummed when it vanished from the market Of course, I'm not sure how much functionality there will be, if I recall correctly this was originally shareware, so I wonder will it only allow conversions of certain lengths or will it stop working after a period of time?

    Today I found video2swf via a mention on this page that talks about converting and creating Flash content for your webpages. It is a retail product.
