What is FLV?
FLV, or Flash Video, is a preferred file format that is designed for web playback, offering high rates of compression to deliver video over the Internet using Adobe Flash Player (formerly known as Macromedia Flash Player) version 6, 7, 8, or 9. Yet FLV files cannot be played back directly and they must be embedded in an SWF file. The most common approach is to use an SWF file that functions as a media player with screen and playback controls. Notable users of FLV are YouTube, Google Video, Myspace, Metacafe, Dailymotion, iFilm, Music, eVideoShare, StreetFire, etc.
Note: Unlike other conversion tools, Moyea FLV to Video Converter will enable you to convert particular FLV files including On2 vp6 video FLV, Nelly Moser audio FLV into the proper video format for playback on your iPod player without the need to install extra codecs or other additional system or third party components for some functionalities.

Add File Click on the "Add" button on the tool bar to import FLV files into the FLV to Video Converter and the standard file open dialog appears. Select "FLV File" in its "Files of type" combo box.
