From Wikipedia, we can be informed that: HTML5 is a markup language for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web and a core technology of the Internet. It is the fifth revision of the HTML standard. As the video tag in HTML5 gives a strong impact to the world as a hot new standard, it is high time the web passed into HTML5 era. However, since the older standard videos were encoded in FLV (before MP4 was supported in Flash), we have to conduct some conversion to make the videos be supported by HTML5 pages. This tutorial will show you how to turn your old videos from FLV to HTML5-friendly video files: FLV to WebM, FLV to OGG, FLV to MP4 (HTML5 MP4 format).

It’s important to mention that different browsers support different HTML5 videos in different formats. For example, IE9 supports HTML5 MP4 and WebM, while Firefox 4 is compatible with HTML5 WebM or OGG as well as Chrome 6. So you should note that which exactly the format you need to convert to is.

Now let’s take a look at how to convert .flv to HTML5.
