Posted on April 22, 2008. Filed under: File conversion, Freeware/Shareware, Video | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Convert the online FLV file videos to MPEG4 format using vixy.net and the free online converter.

“This service allows you convert a Flash Video / FLV file (YouTube’s videos,etc) to MPEG4 (AVI/MOV/MP4/MP3/3GP) file online. It is using a compressed domain transcoder technology (outline in Japanese). It converts FLV to MPEG4 faster and less lossy than a typical transcoder.

When you submit a URL, it will download and convert to the video format, and then you can download the converted file.”

Note that doing this to YouTube and some other sites may be treated as a violation of copyright.  Please respect the rights of the owners of the files.
