When I encode an FLV from an MPEG, the video in the FLV is upside down and backwards.  Any idea what may cause this and how to fix it.  I have successfully done this in the past but now it's not working.

where are you plaing converted FLV?
what are you using to converted video to FLV?

In case you have programmed in FLA using video instance, check if your video instance is not rotated 180

Hi markcondiff,

I would recommend you try encoding with the following free application:

Super:

Super is a completely free video/audio converter that achieves for free what most can't achieve for money!

http://www.erightsoft.com/S5l01.html
Direct download link:
http://gpl.download.free.fr/3D9121212BB6AB90DF314FF/SUPERsetup.exe

Simply drag and drop the file into the program, select your output container and away it goes!

Hope this helps!

I am using Flash 8 Video Encoder. It comes with Flash and I have done this successfully before and it works fine on other computers. Since I have reformatted my computer and reinstalled everything this is happening. I installed flash on another computer and it works fine.

Sounds like a codec issue.
Do you know what codec you are using to encode?
You should be using something like On2 VP6?

You could try installing this mega codec pack which contains the codec you need:
