How to convert FLV files to AVI?Views : 1939 Replies : 2 Likes : 0 2014-01-23 08:12 #1
I have downloaded some videos from YouTube for watching offline, but when I play them with my media player, it can’t work. The videos are in FLV format, I guess maybe it’s because my media gadget can’t support such file. My friends told me that I can convert them to AVI files. But I have no idea on what kind of the converter is better. Anyone who have a suggestion? Thanks in advance.

For a powerful converter, please try Apowersoft video converter studio. But I should remind you that sometimes flash files cannot be converted due to some reasons. In this condition, you can use the built-in screen recorder to capture the video as an AVI instead. Although it seems recording files takes more time than transcoding the codec, there is no else way better besides recording it if the file cannot work with the converter software.

Until I read this post, I thought that all youtube videos were viewable everywhere on any device whether you recorded it or not. Now I know otherwise and I’m glad that I found out because we just posted a lot of our tournament videos online and I still want to be able to rip them from youtube and play them back on our big screen.
