Thread: Is there anyway Vegas 7.0 can read FLV files?

  1. #1

    Default Is there anyway Vegas 7.0 can read FLV files?

    I've had the worst of luck converting my flv files from youtube to avi, and it would be nice to just be able to open the flv files in Vegas, but it doesn't read them at all. Is there any sort of plug-in out there so Vegas can import flv files?

    I ahve never seen one - I use 'super c' for all my converson needs.

    I wish Sony Vegas would import flv and render to flv.

    There is so much flv material on the Net that I want to use, and most of the time people view in flv on the Net.

    Premiere (maybe with plugins?) can export and import flv I believe.

    I also wish that there were pda (mp3/video player) that would accept flv.

    Flv is the standard of the Net.

    Non linear editors and players that accept it would sell well.


    I use Super too but that extra conversion requirement at the beginning and end is a pain.

    flv is a distribution format and will be completely rubbish to edit on - not what it is ment for.

    And if you steal any of my films off you tube to sample from make dam sure you credit me or I will cut off your balls and keep them in a jar with all the other peoples who have pimped on my skill -

    I don't care. If a format becomes the distribution format, then (for all those that do not create everything that they use) by definition, that format is the one in which material can be obtained.

    So get to it Sony folks!

    But perhaps this is really about a silent DRM conspiracy? Perhaps Sony and others are not aiding the import of flv becuase they know that a lot of Sony (and others') content is being distributed in flv and they don't want people editing and redistributing it.

    I would not dream of it, sir. I like my balls, and "by attribution" seems very generous.

    There are other legal sources of video.

    Vimeo provides CC licencing options.

    Eyespot basically says that anything you upload is for anyone to use.

    And at least one of the big four music producers is effectively licencing their music to Youtube users on the condition that they put adverts next to the videos that use that music.


    By the way, some Onda (a relatively unknown Chinese manufacturer) VX series players can play flv, some with TV output.
