The best FLV encoder for VB.NET

I develop in VB.NET and have large amounts of avi files that I would like to compress into FLV's for online delivery.  There appear to be a lot of flv encoders out there such as http://www.flvdev.com/flv_encoder_sdk/ - I was wondering if anyone knows of an sdk from adobe or a more well known source for tools that I can use in VB.NET to programmatically convert these files.

Thanks!

You can get excellent quality from Sorenson Squeeze... it will take in many formats including full res SD and HD footage in all the major formats. You could get away with the Flash encoder version of the software if you are only looking to output .FLV.

You can batch encode and also setup online encoding where you upload your source files to a watch folder and it will encod for you.

Here is another one but it's probably very similar to the one you suggested

http://www.flvsoft.com/flv_encoder_sdk/

adobe have a product called flash media encoding server
http://www.adobe.com/products/flashmediaencoding/
but it's really more of an offline batch encoder I don't know if it provides an SDK

It does provide an SDK however I think it's still pre-release and when it is released the pricing is rumoured to be around $6000

Wow ya thats steep but I supposed in perspective for large streaming sites. This will be built into a desktop application, sorry if I did not make that clear but your link was a big help.

http://www.ultrashareware.com/Ultra-Video-To-Flash-Converter.htm

Thanks Smokey, the watch folder may work perfectly... the Ultra Converter does the trick but the files are large and not that great quality.  I have used Sorenson in the past but no with the watch folder feature.  I will check it out.
