Editors' Review

+

Lightweight and effective, this program is a great way to convert video files from Flash formats into something useful beyond Web pages. Specializing in formats meant for portable devices, Free FLV Converter also supports AVI and can download embedded SWF or FLV vids directly from the Internet when you punch in the URL.

The app can also perform local searches for vids as well as convert to FLV. Hitting either conversion tab will automatically open a file browser so you can choose your victim. From there, a conversion window opens up, and you can change the basics such as settings, including output format, quality, and destination directory, as well as more advanced options like the codec, aspect ratio, and the frame rate. Tap convert at the bottom of the window when you're ready, and the Free FLV Converter works smoothly and without interfering with other programs.

Free FLV Converter does have one annoyance: When you install it, be sure to opt out of the Dealio toolbar. It's no more than a minor drawback, though, and doesn't cause problems later on. Seeing as how the app ran smoothly in the background, it's definitely a must-use piece of freeware.

"It has &%$#@ besides the "seach-engine" BEWARE"

June 25, 2009  |  By em22153

 |  Version: Free FLV Converter 1.2.1

Pros

Excellent application in my opinion BUT... sadly a dangerous application.

Cons

READ Summary

Summary

Excellent application in my opinion, and I guess that is the CATCH to entice people to install it. They do install the famaous DEALO serch engine, EVEN if you uncheck the mark for it (i installed it twice)... but besides that, a lot strange things began to happen. The worse one : I lost my INBOX email from Yahoo mail Plus account. No, I have no solid "evidence" that FLV cause it... only that it happened on the same day or next after I installed it. And other weird stuff happened that never did before. I finally REVOVED it; and even that WAS a hassle. The funnything is that still like the program, but too risky

"ITS OKAY BUT IT HAS SEVERAL BUGS THAT NEEDS TO BE WORK OUT..NOT WORTH THE TIME"

December 05, 2007  |  By compgeek76

 |  Version: Free FLV Converter 1.2.1

Pros

The preview and download feature is okay

Cons

First, all of the video codecs listed in the option video feature are not comptitable to view in WIndows Media Player and Real which when playing the videos that you download in both of these players will mention.

Although they listed that this software is recommended for Windows 2000/XP/NT and maybe Vista. This is not true. Personally, I think this software has spyware although I can not prove it.

"Not Happy"

December 05, 2007

 |  Version: Free FLV Converter 1.2.1

Pros

I successfully opted out of installing the toolbar spybar.

Cons

Tried to convert .wmv to flash. The resulting file stopped after 1 second, same as another reviewer said. Maybe it does something useful, but not that!

"Solid performer, Spyware is no help."

December 05, 2007  |  By bmw013090

 |  Version: Free FLV Converter 1.2.1

Pros

Software works well, fast and has a simple to use interface. The fact that it is a totally free and legal program for this task makes it the only choice if you don't want to pay.

Cons

Dealio tool bar ruined my search engine and security settings on Firefox 2.0.11. It took a half hour to remedy the problem. Also, it uses all available CPU processing power, so long converting times can lead to a PC shutdown to protect the processor from overheating, especially in laptops. No mpeg or mpeg2 support for creative or iRiver products
