How to Convert MPEG Files to FLV Format?


FLV (Flash Video) is a container file format used to deliver video over the Internet. FLV has been accepted as the default online video format by many sites. Notable users of it include YouTube, Hulu, VEVO, Yahoo! Video, metacafe,, BBC Online, and many other news providers. Though YouTube now accepts videos uploaded in most container formats, including .AVI, .MKV, .MOV, .MP4, DivX, .FLV, .3GP, .ogg and .ogv, FLV is still the first choice when we want to upload video files to those video sharing websites because the size of FLV file is very smal and the load speed of FLV file is very fast.

Under the MPEG standards, there are many popular compression formats, such as, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, MP4, H.264, etc. So we may come across a lot of MPEG files in our daily life and we need to upload them to some video sharing websites. In that case, a professional MPEG to FLV Converter is what we have to use. Since videos uploaded to YouTube by standard account holders are limited to 15 minutes in duration (In December 2010, YouTube announced that holders of standard accounts would be allowed to upload videos of unlimited length, provided that they have a good history of following the site's Community Guidelines and policy on copyright.), it is very necessary for the MPEG to FLV Converter to possess trimming function. iCoolsoft Total Video Converter is therefore a very good choice.
