FLV to WMV: Convert Video from FLV(Flash Video) to WMV(Windows Media Video) with River Past Video Cleaner, FLV2WMV converter, conversion

What is FLV?

FLV is the video format used by Flash.

FLV (Flash Video) is a proprietary file format used to deliver video over the Internet using Adobe Flash Player (formerly known as Macromedia Flash Player) version 6, 7, 8, or 9. FLV content may also be embedded within SWF files. Notable users of the FLV format include YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo! Video and MySpace.

To convert FLV video to other formats with River Past software, you need to have CCCP installed.

What is WMV?

WMV stands for Windows Media Video -- developed and controlled by Microsoft. WMV is a generic name of Microsoft's video encoding solutions and doesn't necessarily define the technology what it uses -- since version 7 (WMV7) Microsoft has used its own flavour of MPEG-4 video encoding technology. DivX video format is originally based on hacked WMV codec.

Windows Media Format 11 adds support for HD video up to 1080P. WMF 11 runs only on Windows XP and Vista.

Additional information is available on Microsoft Windows Media page.

Video size/minute (KByte/second) = bitrate / 8 * 60.
