Post How can I convert flv to mp4/mp3/wmv/ or rip audio it?
I've downloaded a heap of music videos from YouTube and want to get the sound as mp3 files but I don't know how to do it and I can't be bothered to search the interwebz to find out so, yeah.

I'd rather convert the flv files to mp4 or wmv so what program can do that?
If I can't do that, how can I rip the audio from the flv to an mp3?

Which method would be better?

Firstly, I would have used a better method that downloaded and converted the files to MP4/MP3 whatever for me automatically,
Such as this; http://www.listentoyoutube.com/ & https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/9915/

Both of which are brilliant for what i use.

Secondly, In terms of converters, I can only think of one atm, because I don't tend to use them often.

There's a program in the latest DVD attached to PCUser magazine called Yougrab3. I think you have to buy the mag though to get the program because it's an inhouse thing. I haven't looked at it because I usually don't bother loading the DVDs that come with the magazines but it might be something you could find useful.

I use a tool called atube catcher http://atube-catcher.dsnetwb.com/get-vi ... -Page.html

"The default format is MPEG4 AVI, the file types supported are 3GP, 3G2, AVI, XVID, MP4, MP3, MP2, WMA, WMV, GIF, FLAC, WAV, PSP, MPG, VOB, OGG, MOV, AVI."

I like the ability to convert to anything in both video and audio formats, and this tool does a good job of allowing it.

On top of that the tool is free.

Thanks guys. I just DL'd aTube Catcher as it seems to be the most useful but I'll check out the others later.

If I want to get anything from Youtube I use www.dirpy.com which is online (so you don't need to install anything) and lets you download either the music (which can be pre-tagged) or the video.

I was using mencoder to translate FLV->MP3 for some flv-released music. It was complex and confusing, since switches in the manual had changed recently. Still, it let me get the maximum audio quality out of a FLV.

I've been wondering if ".FLV" will be treated like any kind of media container file soon. VLC/mPlayer/WMPC already treat it like one.

Listentoyoutube is an awful website, Norton does regulary warn me about spyware spreaded by this site. I actually use this much cleaner listentoyoutube alternative.

If ever you are stuck for a program to view things on on your computer, then VLC Media Player plays every type of file you can every imagine, as for a converter I use AppGeeker, can't go wrong there.
convert .flv to mp4 file on Mac or Windows

virtualdub is a good video converter. Unfortunately like many open source projects its user interface is very daunting (which is actually true of a lot of video conversion software)

You can try spamming the fuck out of a small gaming forum, that'll definitely make people buy your shitty fucking video converter software that doubtlessly comes heavily laden with a wide ecosystem of malware, adware, and spyware.

I use Fluffy Puppies to convert flv to mp4. It also supports audio extraction from the movies. You can refer to a tutorial on how to extract the souls of the puppies and use them to fuel your video conversion processes by way of a satanic ritual involving pentagrams and lots and lots of candles.

I like how "people" register just to make one post in this thread.
