    Default Convert FLV to AVI

    I have several Flash video files sitting in my system that I'd like to convert to AVI. I downloaded a simple little freeware called Any Video Converter which does exactly what I need, i.e. convert from one video format to another. This program worked well when converting other formats like MOV or RMVB to AVI, but it's having some bizarre problems when trying to convert FLV to AVI.

    I'm finding in many cases that the converted video doesn't match the time length of the original. Sometimes the converted video will be longer and sometimes it'll be shorter. I'm not talking about just 1 or 2 seconds longer or shorter, I'm talking about between 10 seconds to over a minute longer or shorter! The majority of the time the converted video will be longer, but a minority of the times it'll be shorter.

    Needless to say the video and audio get out of sync as well. I'm converting to a fairly standard AVI format these days, using the Xvid video format, and the MP3 audio format. I'm keeping the original video resolution, and using a 128kbps MP3 CBR bitrate.

    I'm thinking maybe there's something wrong with the FLV codecs I'm using, since the program does well with all other formats that I've tried so far. But I could be wrong, maybe the program is at fault, so perhaps if somebody can suggest another choice, hopefully free.

    Flvs often use a different frame rate than is considered 'standard' - ie 24 or 30 fps.

    You need your output file to match this orignal framerate..... or obviously you'll get various lengths as a result.

    Ah, that would make some sense. Is it possible that FLV's use variable-bit-rate video like some audio formats do?

    Not really, I did that prior to posting the question in here, since I obviously didn't find the answer on a Google search. The solution turned out to be to make the converted video match the frame rate of the original FLV.
