    Convert Movie to FLV

    hey guys,

    I have a .avi (or .mpg - i forget) that I want to convert to a .flv for use in a Flash player, but I don't see any options in Flash to do that.

    How do you guys go about converting to FLV... any recommended software? (preferably free - as I only need to do this once)

    Thanks a lot...

    take a look at
    http://www.*******.com/product/flash...oder/index.htm

    maybe this is what are you looking for.
    I have used it and it works fine for me.

    You will find some example (mpeg's converted to flash) at my website

    I've used Flash to convert videos to FLV all the time, unless you're using an unsupported option, but I think the ones you mentioned are supported. However, a kicking software I've used for this is Sorenson Squeeze, pricey, but worth every penny if you'll be working with compression of video.

    really? i'm using CS3, and i've tried looking in Publish settings, and I've tried doing export. and none of them seem to have any type of FLV option.

    AlexMZ - got it... thanks a lot. I don't know why that happened - happened in private messages too. Weird.

    In Flash 8, there was a separate video conversion utility in the programs menu from the "start" button in Windows, which did a nice job. Look for Macromedia Flash Video Encoder. Unless Adobe changed that for CS3 which wouldn't surprise me, they tend to take everything useful and replace it with crap that works haphazardly.

    You need a converter to generate flv from avi or mpeg. You can search "flash video mx pro" on google.com for more info.
