Hello.

I have many files in different formats (WMV,DVD,AVI,MPG, etc').
I have installed video stream server (red5).

I am searching for a simple way to convert all the files to FLV.
I have windows 2008 Server.

open-source or free software are always better.

then you can setup a script to run and convert the video when it is uploaded to your website.
