OK: Flash is simple to do, Riva work well, "Smart" works well. Now we have a FLA file, it is great to play in a boxed player on a website. But lets say that I take a AVI of a person, convert it to FLA or SWF. If I wanted to take that file > embed it, stream it on my servers and place it on another web site. I want to take a FLA (say a talking person) to anothers site and make it appear on the front page, I DO NOT want a chromeless window to do this because the tiny Flash file has a I-framed window, yet this cover the customers text on there website, does anyone know how to crop just the person out of the sat 3" tall by 1" wide white window so the person talking on the site is just the person and NOT a table or anything like that - I just want the person, not the pop over invisible I-frame window Example: http://www.videoforprofit.com:80/index.php?page=btour2&theme=1 Any ideas?

Seems like there's quite a few ways to convert to FLV without to many problem, but try to convert an FLV to AVI - MPEG or other format? Not a lot of choices out there. Or is there? I know of one that works somewhat well if set up correctly and even this does not always work. It's called 'Super'. Does any one else have a better way of doing this?
To convert video to flash, I use sothink video encoder for adobe flash, which I googled several days ago and found really powerful, practical and convenient to use. It supports almost all popular video formats such as avi, mpeg, mpg, mov, wmv, mp4, etc.... And you can convert your favorite videos to FLV(flash video), SWF(publish as html) and even screen saver. What's more, it offers various player templates, from which you can choose as you like. Its conversion speed is fast and its output video/audio quality is nice enough to meet your needs.
For converting flv to avi, mpeg, etc. I use FLV to AVI MPEG WMV 3GP MP4 iPod Converter This software easily can convert these files. I use it for a long time and I haven't any problem with it. There is a free trial version without time limit. You can try it too.
I agree with you: sometimes it is necessary to convert to the more standard MPEG as there are many players around and can be recorded in VCD. I want to convert AVI and MOV to MPEG too.
I've been using it for over a year now and I've never had any problems. I admit it's neither the easiest nor the most intuitive thing to use but once you understand how it works and set the options correctly, it does the job. Ralph
nice guy... There is a program called WM Converter you can use to change FLV to AVI or even a MP3 A simple interface and pretty reliable ...http://www.freewarefiles.com/program_6_227_33387.html i hope this helps....
You are going about this in totally the wrong way! The only thing you have achieved by your original question is: posing a question that is completely unanswerable. What you have to understand here is the question of visual acuity and image quality - two aspects of your argument that you have totally dismissed without thought. Think of broadcast quality video footage as a 1 Gallon Tank of Water. When you convert DOWN to any common computer video format, like .AVI, .MPG, .MPEG, or if you are totally insane .MOV, you are scooping out quarts from your gallon tank. So you now have 4 quarts of water - each distinct and separate. You then pick the quart of your choice (only one choice from the four that you have) and you convert to .FLV. In doing so you transform your quart into a PINT, thereby discarding the other pint of image quality. [b]Your question is asking "How can I change my PINT into that GALLON that I used to have?" THIS IS A LUDICROUS SUGGESTION !!![/b] Quite frankly, I would have expected this sort of idea from someone in Kindergarten!

The dumb, or elementary question, is the one that goes untendered. Not every has your grand enlightenment and, thus, come to forums such as this to learn a thing or two; that is if the 'teachers' are willing to instruct instead of chastising from their pinnacle of irrational self-importance.
Not everybody is an expert in image and video and water quality.. A simple, polite response is really all that is required on a tech board such as this one..
Noone asked about video quality - just whether it can be done. Say I had a Flash file and I needed it to be mpeg - will I have to take it the local kindergarten?
