I have a wmv movie clip which I want to convert to flv to publish in my flash player. However whenever I try to encode it it fails half way through. I have tried all of thesettings using Adobe media encoder, just wondering if anyone has any suggestions to make this work.

Check the WMV file on gspot to see what audio format is in the WMV? and the difference from the others you used

Could be an unsupported format since WMV is a propiety codec to MS  Adobe drops a lot of it's support with each upgrade and often times you need to find work arounds,or re-encode
Flash Video Encoder CS3 is reported to still support importing WMV with no errors but Adobe Media Encoder CS4 just gives this same problem to lots of users

File formats supported for import

So we now offer work arounds
Riva FLV Encoder 2

Super video converter, This one is freeware. It can handle a huge variety of video formats and can convert them to nearly anything you would want.
