Suggest that you google for one by typing .... video converters in search box.
The free versions may not meet your rquirements ( without losing quality ).
You may need to spend a few $.

Editing to last reply......

The reason that I do not make recommendation is that :
Suggesdting a non-Microsoft program which requires purchasing can be considered spamming.

You will have to decide for yourself.

This one is free and works very well ( http://www.formatoz.com/ ). I have compared it to many others and found it to be the best. Besides, it has many other useful functions - e.g. you can crop videos.

When you convert to .flv, you should expect a loss of quality. There is no avoiding it because .flv "looses" a lot of bits. With many other formats, e.g. .mkv or .mov that would not be the case - at least you would not be able to notice it.

For basic trimming you can try AviDemux. FLV is one of the formats listed in the dropdown. But I haven't tried it myself. AviDemux excels with avi and mpeg formats. Stuff like mkv can give it problems. Not sure about FLV. But it's free so it doesn't hurt to try it. Also it's generally useful to keep in the toolbox.

Avidemux.org

Click on Wiki link for extensive documentation.

Note that the newer builds tend to be better for stuff like MKV.
2.4 is the last version that has a decent one pass xvid encoder.
2.5 and onward you have to do 2 pass xvid or it looks like you're watching through lace curtains.

That one looks really impressive! I'm definitely going to have to give it a shot. I personally haven't chosen one that I like best (although this one looks like it might be it) but I've heard a lot of good things about Handbrake. HandBrake It has A LOT of options (I'm not sure about what file types it supports. but I know it's extensive and the info is bound to be on that site somewhere) The only reason I don't use is because I don't like to have to edit a lot of options. I just like a converter that lets me choose a kind of Low-Good-Best quality option and then starts converting. But that's because I prefer to have the lowest possible filesize while still having a watchable video. No HD for me :)

So If you're interested in really tweaking every setting of your video conversion, I recommend you try Handbrake, especially since it's free.

Also, video converting speed is reliant mostly on your computer specs, not the program. Most programs will convert as fast as your processor will let it. Changing programs isn't likely to significantly improve conversion speed.

As for video editing programs, there are a ton that are excellent, but most cost money if you want a good one. Power Director by Cyberlink seems to be a pretty good one, but it's really high end and costs a lot. A lot of people recommend VirtualDub (free) but I wasn't able to get a decent-sized video out of it (it went from like 700MB to over 4GB) and i just gave up on it. But that could have easily been a mistake on my part, you should try it out yourself. I think it has good editing options, but I didn't like the output file.

I think RealPlayer has some basic editing features, and I know it supports flv files. If you're just wanting something simple and don't feel like doing a lot of research or learning the program, just go with that one. PC Media Manager: Get RealPlayer Free | Real.com

I have yet to find a good free video editing program I really like, so I'll be looking at other people's suggestions on this thread too. I use Audacity for audio (and it is amazing!) but I want a similar program that will also handle videos, and haven't been able to find one yet.

Note:I don't know how many of these support flv format, but if they don't natively you may be able to find codecs for them.

So those are all my suggestions and opinions about every type of conversion software I've used and heard about haha. Hope some part of it was helpful.

I am glad you like it. Try the cropping function - it is really neat. It is under "Option" once you selected the file. I use that sometimes e.g. when I have a video of an object that is far away, like a ship for example.
