  User-A964BECF-28AC-450B-8707F7EBA2A7EF6F 10:50 12 Aug 2009

Hi, does anyone know how or where i can convert a youtube .flv file that ive downloaded with realplayer. i used to use a programme called Super but i think youtube have somehow coded all the videos to be unable to be converted.

Does anyone know a program that can get by this?

all i want to do is convert a flv file so that i can edit it in movie maker etc.

Thanks if anyone can help.

For future reference, try downloading youtube using save2pc lite, this free program can be got from:

thissmart little program will allow you to save the clip in a variety of formats including avi and mpg.

I use Save2PC - I've recommended it many a time - but you can only save downloads to AVI, MPEG or FLV with the free (Lite) version.

DownloadHelper is another I occasionally use and this will convert on the fly if you add the Firefox extension:
