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.

    I can drag the files and paste them to Koyote directly, and it converts the files in the same folder. So I almost didn't change any settings. it's effortless, very convenient, user friendly, and very fast.It has good interface too.

    Cons

    It cannot convert wma files. It said DRM Protected. All of my files are legitimate though.

    "Was great before the add-ons. Beware"

    December 10, 2011   |   By Ms.Google

    Version: Koyote Free FLV Converter 7.00

    Pros

    simple conversion. video available when needed.

    Cons

    Search engines not one but two Searchqu and Searchcore. Before I could use it without any issues with Windows 7 starting it up it would trigger MS Office to install for no reason whatsoever. Don't know what they did if anything but, it's not good.

    Summary

    Beware. It's not the same as before. What a shame. Was really good. Sometimes changes isn't always the best thing.

    "It suddenly stopped working..."

    November 21, 2011   |   By DiEx80

    Version: Koyote Free FLV Converter 7.00

    Pros

    It works like it says it does. I have used it for a while now with no problems or anything... I have ran every single AV and it does not detect it as a virus. Tubefinder does have viral like props but I don't use it so that is no concern. It works great...

    Cons

    ...That is until it's recent update. Now it won't convert anything without it crashing on this Win XP Pro box. I have no idea why. I have not tried it on my Win7 box so maybe they dropped XP support? There hardly is any tech support too. I have emailed them and got no response yet.

    Summary

    It is a good program and it does what it says it does. Easy to use and easy to understand. Still, I do not get why it has suddenly took to crashing when I try to convert a FLV to something else.

    "DOOM ALERT: DO NOT USE THIS CORPORATE PROMOTED MALWARE"

    October 16, 2011   |   By Media-Rite

    Version: Koyote Free FLV Converter 7.00

    Pros

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I'M SURE SOMEWHERE IN A 3RD WORLD, OR A CORPORATE SHAREHOLDER'S MEETING, THERE IS SOME ONE / PEOPLE BENEFITTING FROM THE PLETHORA OF MALWARE / TROJANS / SPYWARES / BOTS / WHICH ARE UNLEASHED AT THE "UNINSTALL" PROMPT.

    JUST KICK YOURSELF IN THE NUTS AND SAVE SOME TIME AND AGONY!

    Cons

    JUST WAIT .... WAIT UNTIL YOU TRY TO UNINSTALL IT! 23 DIFF MALWARES IN ALL, 16 DLL FILES CORRUPTED / QUARANTINED, NONE OF MY ADOBE SOFTWARE WORKS ANYMORE! :(

    AND THAT IS JUST THE BEGINNING! YOUR HOMEPAGE WILL STILL BE QU413. SEARCH.COM, OR WHATEVER THE URL IS, YOU WILL HAVE TO MANUALLY RESET ON YOUR BROWSER, A DIFF HOMEPAGE, EVERY TIME. IN FACT I HAVE TO ENTER "/GOOGLE" (RATHER THAN THE CORRECT URL) FOR IT TO STOP REDIRECTING MY HOMEPAGE, ANY LEGIT URL WILL NOT RESTORE THE ORIG H/P.

    TO THE SMOOTH TALKER WHO SAYS "IT WON'T INSTALL THE TOOLBAR IF YOU *READ* ~ SHAME SHAME SHAME --- FOR KNOWINGLY ENCOURAGING US TO INSTALL SOMETHING HARMFUL! (OR PITY THE FOOL IF HE DON'T NOTICE HOW TOXIC IT IS!)

    CNET - MEET THE F.B.I. --- F.B.I. MEET CNET.

    BUT.. WAIT.... CNET DOES NOT CARE, INVOLVED IN THIS SOFTWARE BEING DISTRIBUTED AND INSTALLED, YET THEY KNOW (BASED ON OTHER COMMENTS) THAT IT IS MALICIOUS.

    Summary

    SHAME ON DEVELOPER AND CNET AS WELL FOR NOT REMOVING THE D/L DESPITE MULTIPLE COMMENTS SUCH AS MINE. IT MAKES ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE FOR THE BIG C TO KEEP THIS UP FOR D/L.....

    ....UNLESS IT IS POSSIBLY MADE BY ADOBE, OR GOOGLE, OR ANY ONE OF THE OTHER COMPANIES WHICH WOULD FEEL THAT FLV CONVERTER WOULD THREATEN THEIR PROFITS..... SEEING AS HOW THE MAIN APP IT PROMOTES IS "D/L UTUBE VIDS!" ("STEAL COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL"!)

    ....AND CNET GETS $$$ TO PROMOTE FROM THESE CORPORATIONS A PRODUCT THAT IS TOXIC.

    THAT BEING SAID;

    I DIDN'T D/L THIS TO "STEAL" U TUBE VIDS / AUDIOS, OR ANY THING ELSE, I WANTED TO VERIFY MY FLASH VIDS WERE HOLDING THE CORRECT FPS RATE, BY CONVERTING THEM TO AVI/MPEG/WMV ETC, IT WAS AN EXPERIMENT GONE WRONG.

    THERE OUGHTTA BE A LAW!

    "does what it says"

    September 19, 2011   |   By prodiet

    Version: Koyote Free FLV Converter 7.00

    Pros

    easy interface
    can DL directly from sites like YT

    Cons

    toolbar thing, but that doesn't happen if you !! READ !! during the installation process.

    Summary

    so if you install don't do it like those other boys/girls (next, next, finish) but READ and deselect the toolbar (everybody knows that !!).

    "Beware of what instals"

    August 30, 2011   |   By cm87

    Version: Koyote Free FLV Converter 7.00

    Pros

    It works very well and easy interface but only converts two files at a time.

    Cons

    The button line can be confusing

    Summary

    Do not install it. When installed it hijacks your browser with a search engine. It is almost difficult to remove this plug in or even disable it. Yes download it and use it but beware of what comes with it and be prepared to use every method to de install the plug in for IE
