Flash Video (FLV) is probably the video format most frequently used in online sharing video sites, such as YouTube. However, if you download one of those videos you will get a FLV video file, which you may not be able to play directly on your MP4 player and other portable devices. Fortunately, 4Media FLV to MP4 Converter can help you solve this problem by converting FLV files into MP4 videos very easily.
With a modern and sophisticated graphical interface, this program offers an intuitive environment that reminds me of many other video converters. The program supports conversion in batches and offers you a built-in media player that allows you to preview any source video on your conversion list. You can add source files to this program using various methods – individual files, folders, drag-and-drop, or even by ripping the tracks of an audio CD. You can convert your FLV videos not only into MP4, but also into H.246, MOV, and PSP-compatible files. The program can also be used as an audio extractor (MP3, M4A, and WAV are supported) and even as an audio-CD ripper.
Whether you choose one output format or another, you can always configure all the output parameters for that format in a special panel. However, you need to select manually first the group of parameters you will configure, including the basic settings, video stream, audio stream, and metadata. This might be confusing for many users, at least until they get used to this interface. The built-in media player allows you to capture frames (snapshots) form any video file. You can also assign different and multiple output formats and settings to each source file. The program is designed to take full advantage of both multi-core CPUs and ultra-modern graphics cards.
In conclusion, 4Media FLV to MP4 Converter is a powerful and full-featured video converter which will allow you to make any FLV video file compatible with most portable video players, such as MP4 players and iPhones.
