Commonly, the video clips downloaded from the online sharing sites like YouTube are FLV files, which are audio and video format that compresses media into quality files. But most of the time, FLV files are not supported by many media players and mobile devices such as Windows Media Player and Windows Phone, Xbox 360, etc. Thus, there are many cases that you need to convert the FLV videos to other types of video formats like WMV. Here I’d like to share you 2 simple ways to convert FLV to WMV: either online or offline.
For free converting FLV to WMV online, the Zamzar can be one of the best choice. It can convert FLV to WMV files online for free as well as downloading videos from YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo! Video, metacafe, Reuters.com, etc. You can convert several files at a time only if the total sizes of your uploaded files are less than 100MB. You are required to enter your email address to receive converted files.
If you are looking for a desktop FLV to WMV Converter for Mac/Windows, or expecting to transcode any .flv files to .wmv format without any limitation such as the video size, then Doremisoft Video Converter for Mac and Video Converter for Windows would be the smartest choice. The program supports batch conversion so you can drag and drop multiple FLV videos in a queue and quickly converts them to the desired WMV format. Here are the easy steps:
First download the converter, then you have two ways to import FLV files. The first one is to directly drag and drop FLV files you want to add to the program. The other is to click "Add Files" icon. This program supports batch conversion, so you can import several videos at one click.
Go to the "Convert to" output format menu, and choose "Common Video" > "WMV (*.wmv)" as the output format. If you have imported multiple videos, you can check/uncheck the "Apply to all" check box to apply the output format to each file.
Press "START" button to convert FLV files to WMV files on Mac/Windows (Mountain Lion, Windows 8 included). The conversion will be done in just a while with the best video quality kept.
