Mac FLV converter-How to convert FLV to MP4 videos on Mac

This tutorial is telling you the way to convert FLV to MP4 formats,for you to enjoy videos downloaded from YouTube and Google Video,etc,and enjoy them on your mobile devices,such as iPod,iPhone,PSP etc.

First of all,we must make it clear that the YouTube videos and Google videos are FLV file format. FLV (Flash Live Video file) is a preferred file format that is designed for web playback,offering high rates of compression to deliver video over the internet using Abobe Flash Player. FLV content cannot be played back directly. It must be embedded in a SWFfile. You create (or download) a "container" SWF file from which to play the FLV file. The most common approach is to use an SWF file to function as a media player with screen and playback controls.

In order to put FLV videos in your mobile devices,you may need to convert them to other files,like to MP4. MPEG-4 extends the earlier MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 algorithms with synthesis of speech and video,fractal compression,computer visualization and artificial intelligence-based image processing techniques.
