Transform any video files to FLV for uploading to the internet

Posted by on Tuesday, 3 June, 2014

As you make a plan to convert videos in all kinds of formats to FLV for uploading to the internet easily, well, maybe for other purpose, try the best video to flv converter to get it done now!

FLV is a Flash video file format that you view with the Adobe Flash Player. There are many types of video files, and most can only be viewed with certain players. To our disappointment, some of them has poor compatibility with popular uploading websites. To get all video files publishing to YouTube, Metacafe or other video streaming websites, the first thing you need to do is transcoding other video formats to FLV by capturing and then converting the file using conversion software.


Step 1

Download and install video capture software. Some examples are WebVideoCap, Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate, and Replay Video Capture. Check the features of each program because not all of them capture every video format. Some capture programs also convert to FLV; others don’t. If you use a capture program that doesn’t convert to FLV, also download a separate FLV converter program.

Step 2

Launch the program and look for a “Get Video” button or similar. Click the button and the software either automatically detects any open video windows or a dialog box opens and you can navigate to the video file you want to capture.

Step 3

Record the video. Most programs have a bold “capture” or “record” button you click to start the capture. You may be prompted to choose a destination folder to save the file.

Step 4

Click stop or end, depending on your software, to end the video capture. If you weren’t prompted before, you’re asked where to save the file. Some programs allow you to choose a file type when you save. Choose FLV if it’s an option.


Here, with Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate, you are able to encode all kinds of video clips to Youtube compatible FLV/F4V/SWF format you need. It really is easier said than accomplished. What’ more, if you feel like playing on iPad, iPod, iPhone, iTunes, PSP, Apple TV, Android Phones, etc, this converter will in no way let you down by converting video to MP4 format with major outcome top quality. The Mac version is iMedia Converter for Mac.
