    FLV to MPEG-2 conversion help!

    Need some help converting a video file from FLV to MPEG-2 formats to make SVCD movies. I have some older Adobe Software but no idea how to use the video software. Anyone know how to do this??

    Download VLC - Video Lan Player. Their website seems to be down right now. Hmm... Looks like you can download from here.

    This is a fine media player for Windows and Linux. Under File -> Wizard... you can take a file and stream it to the network or transcode it (this is what it is called when you recompress to another codec.) It has MPEG-2 as an option.

    See if that works for you.

    You have a copy you could email me? Maybe upload to a file storage/sharing site?

    Btw, looking for free software to do this with as I haven't budgeted money for computer software...

    Ok, Ok, I give up. I've installed 9 Free video converters and 10 more I thought were free but said I had to purchase subscriptions or what not. The free ones SUCK as the video is either crappy or is glitchy. I could use some help converting this to MPEG-2. If someone could convert the file and send it to me I'll do the rest.

    VLC is free. The second link in my post allows you to download it.

    Looks like it worked fine. I'm gonna burn a copy, if I converted it right, and try it out on a DVD player, then the computer.

    Why SVCD?

    Because most DVD players made today will play SVCD's and MPEG format because not everyone will take the time to download a new media player to play the FLV format.

    And now I find I can't burn SVCD as my Nero is not full version. Kinda crappy. Guess I gotta dig into my bag of tricks again.

    For whatever reason it won't encode the file to SVCD format. I've tried every option with the converter software you shown me and it's converting it to a playable mpg file, but it's not SVCD recording for some reason. It's saying the video and audio streams are not compatible with the SVCD format but it's supposedly recording it to MPEG-2.

    Any suggestions?
