Flash movies question.

I'm creating a website where I will need for the user to upload a movie, and it will need to be converted to flash video.
So I would like to know if any one here has done something like that. The movie it will be an .AVI or MPG movie.

Any linke with some information or books it will be great, and if there is a solution out there that does it can help too.
