.Flv Support In Windows Movie Maker
Posted: 04 Jun 2006 12:26 PM
Hello,

I love using Windows Movie Maker for creating simple movies. Now I would like to tweek a little with a video clip which is in .Flv format (Flash Video). Does Windows Movie Maker support .Flv, or can I download a patch which will enable me to use .Flv files? I would rather not have to use a converter to convert Flv to Avi, but if that was the only option does anyone know of a program which is free or cheap which will let me do this?

Thanks,
Ferguson

you first have to convert the .flv file with VLC player here:
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
once you've loaded your .flv file hit the stop button then in the menu at the top of the player click
File>Wizard>Select "transcode/save to file" click next
Then select "Existing playlist item" and highlight the .flv file in the box. click next
another screen will pop up: Select transcode video and from the drop down box choose WMV 3.. (for the bitrate the higher the number the higher the quality but you're limited by the quality of your .flv file)
Then choose "transcode audio". from drop down box select "mp3" (192 is my default bitrate for this). click next.
For "encapsulation format" Select "ASF". click next.
a field will come up asking "select the file to save to". click "choose" and browse to the folder where you want your video and then type in the file name you want in the "file" field. YOU MUST ADD .WMV TO THE END OF THE FILENAME FOR IT TO PLAY(i don't know if you can do .avi files.. i've never tried it.. but you can convert .avi files to .wmv with Bink and Smacker's free RAD Video Tools (just google it if you want that program)
click next and let the player do it's converting.. it will take a little bit depending on how long the video is. Hope this helps :)

Thanks for the VLC media player tip and the excellent instructions skyzthelimit Wink


I used YouTube Downloader to get the flv file.

Then VLC worked perfectly for me in transcoding the FLV file to WMV. What a great free program.

I must say without your detailed instructions I wouldn't have thought at first glance that this "media player" was capable of such transcoding - it's not that obvious.

I'll have to have a go at some of the other transcoding options. I'm curious to see if I can get video onto my new MP4 player or VCD/DVD.

G'day Callan and welcome to the forum

You've dredged up a very old post.
VLC is VERY slow to transcode in this manner.
There are other faster tools available these days.
Personally I use Any Video Converter Freeware

Just downloaded Any Video Converter and installed it again - Works for me on Win XP.
Did you opt to skip the registry booster? That's some recent addition packaged with AVC Free which might be causing you trouble. I skipped it.
I suggest you uninstall the registry booster.

Another option for converting to .wmv format:
Freemake Video Converter

As with other freeware programs, they do offer to load extra software, but to avoid that, just uncheck those options.
