wmv to flv - how to convert

Hello,

I can't convert my wmv to flv. I have Flash 8, and the skin I'm going to use will come from Dreamweaver CS3

I would use Riva FLV encoder, but I can't get it to work. it says the files have an unsupported video codec

The flv needs to be good quality

Right now it's 720 X 480 which is too large. 450X300 would be about the right size.

I also have a swf file that I can't work with (attached and changed extension name to doc)

How do I get an .flv that will work?

Thanks!

Flash 8 should have come with the Flash 8 Video Encoder, which is a separate application that encodes most popular video formats into FLVs.  You might double-check to see if you have it, as that's the simplest (and cheapest, as it's free with Flash 8).

WinFF is free and uses ffmpeg to convert.  My experience with the Flash 8 Video Encoder is that it is s-l-o-w.  ffmpeg is lightning-quick by comparison.

Great tools and suggestions, guys. Thank you. I will note them for later.

My client eventually went with YouTube videos.

Thanks again!
