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.

"Low quality"

July 20, 2010  |  By rg15--2008

 |  Version: Free FLV Converter 6.8

Pros

It is free, has no spyware (despite other postings here) and has an uncluttered interface.

Cons

FLV 2 AVI conversion = low grade + experienced audio sync issues. For decent quality you're given a chance to buy their "plus" product (!). Also, interface focuses on conversion from online sources, not local files (though this is possible).

Summary

At the risk of seeming ungrateful (how do you argue with Free?) I am disappointed with the quality. Minor clunkiness in interface is tolerable.

I trust the site. They don´t make you download and then they try to sell it. If it´s free then it is free. No strings. Thanks!

Cons

it´s good. Easy to use.

Summary

It´s very powerful. I will like to convert to mov files for Panasonic Digital Cameras so I can use them to playbak other videos. Thanks

"Can't carry its weight."

June 28, 2010  |  By xci5ter

 |  Version: Free FLV Converter 6.8

Pros

Easy to use.

Cons

The conversion options window and its dropdown menus are tiny. No advanced options. Can't use external encoders. Can't select iPhone or iPod from the dropdown menu. I'm assuming the Video codec MPEG4 in format Mp4 is H.264...?

Summary

It's great if just want to transcode quickly, but there are smaller apps out there that do the same thing and much more.
