Convert Google Video FLV’s into AVI, MPG, etc…

You have FLV (flash video) file and don't know how to convert it. These notes is for you ;-)

First of all, you can play FLV on Linux by ffplay, Copyright (c) 2003 Fabrice Bellard or by VideoLAN Media Player

If you want to convert use it as example:
# ffmpeg -i myvideo.flv -ab 56 -ar 22050 -b 500 -s 320x240 test.mpg

Where all that trash is:
-b bitrate: set the video bitrate in kbit/s (default = 200 kb/s)
-ab bitrate: set the audio bitrate in kbit/s (default = 64)
-ar sample rate: set the audio samplerate in Hz (default = 44100 Hz)
-s size: set frame size. The format is WxH (default 160x128)

This will convert your myvideo.flv into a test.mpg!

Enjoy! :-)
