There are many ways to download online videos from specialized websites like YouTube, Vimeo and others. However, many of those videos are downloaded in FLV (Flash Video File) format which is not directly playable with most standard media players, including Windows Media Player. Fortunately, there are tools like FLV.com FLV Converter that are designed to convert FLV videos into several other formats that are compatible with most known players.
The program, however, is not strictly a FLV converter as it performs converting video files into other formats as well (AVI, MP4, MOV, WMV and M4V). Thanks to an intuitive and well-designed user interface, this tool is very easy to use, even for novice users. You just need to select your source video file and the output format, quality and folder, and then you can start the conversion process. The output format can be selected among several options - some of them optimized for well-known portable devices, such as iPhone, iPad, iPod, PSP, general cell phone, WMV and AVI. You can also select MP3 to extract the audio stream from your source video, or "Manual conversion" to provide your own conversion parameters in command-line mode. As for the output quality, you can select among low, medium, optimal, high. Alternatively, you can reserve the quality of the source video.
FLV.com FLV Converter also offers you a couple of simple but useful editing functions, namely volume adjustment and video cut. The output volume can be set from 0% to 200% compared with the source volume, while for the video cut you need to provide the start and end time points manually. Finally, the program includes other sections like "Activity", where you can see a list of the videos currently converting or already converted, and "Play" that includes a small but full-featured video player that allows you to playback the videos contained in a selected folder.
As you can see, FLV.com FLV Converter allows you to convert video files among several popular formats in a very practical and easy way. The program is very suitable for beginners, thus experts and professional users may need to find other video converters with more advanced settings.
