4Media FLV to MP4 Converter 5.1 is a conversion tool that will help you convert the video files you download from YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo Video, and similar applications into Mp4, MPEG-4 and MOV. Once you have converted the files into the mentioned formats, you can extract them to mobile devices such as iPods, iPhones, Mp4 Players and some cell phones. With this easy-to-use application, you can also extract audio from your FLV video files. You will be able to convert FLV files into M4A, Mp3 and WAV.
The program supports several languages, including English, French, Chinese and Japanese. A media player available in the program's main window will let you preview your conversions.

As you surely know, there are tons of applications that allow you to convert files from one format into another. When referring about FLV files, it is good to know that you must have either an FLV player or a conversion tool to convert the files into AVI or compatible formats for media players. In this case, you might not be able to play your video files in all media players, but you get to play them directly on many portable devices. However, the price of this software is similar or higher than similar applications and it does not provide you with all the functions the other applications do. Anyway, if you want to directly extract your FLV files to your Mp4, iPod or iPhone without playing them on your computer, then this program might be right for you.
