Free FLV to WMV Conversion

update: if you can't manage by yourself contact me and I'll help you with conversion
- - -
This is something I've been asked about several times, so I decided to post quick and free solution on how to convert FLV file into WMV.

There are several ways to make this video formats conversion and I'll show you one simple solution which doesn't require and previous knowledge. Go to and download small freeware program flvtowmv from Lumixsoft. Setup file is 3.76 Mb in size and installation is straightforward.



How to use it? Click on Add button and locate FLV file you wish to convert. Set output folder if you wish. Set video quality somewhere between lowest and highest. Output file size depends on this settings. Set video size. Finally click Convert button. Process is pretty fast. You are done. Quick and easy.

It says it's free, until you try to use it, and it asks you to "sign up for your free registration code"... which, by "free" they mean $20 US

Hi Keith,

I really don't have a clue what are you talking about, software is 100% free. Maybe you have downloaded something else? Please, check again.

Thanks

Worked perfectly for me. This is far and away the easiest program after trying about 5-6 others. Thanks flanture!

No, they have closed the free registration and they are now advertising free product then charging for it. This is only to be expected from cheap two bit companies. If its advertised as free then they should stick to their commitment.. or get the damn webpage updated!!! Strange how long that takes eh?

Vincent said...

Yes, it's free. It's free only for the first time after installation of the program.That's what happen. After that, they want the registration number to start the program and after registered yourself, they ask you to pay to get the registration number!!!

Free in what terms?

Bob said...

Worked great! Very simple to use and the price is perfect!

Ginomai said...

Yes, it works! I would recommend downloading it here, though: http://download.cnet.com/Free-FLV-to-WMV-Convert/3000-2194_4-10912072.html

The other site actually redirects your download (purposefully or b/c it was hijacked I'm not sure). I noticed that it downloaded a file named "freez_flv2avi.exe" even though I clicked to download "flvtowmv.exe". Obviously not the same file. My guess is that is where the problem has been for some of those who have commented previously. (I didn't actually open the "freez_flv2avi.exe" file since I don't know what it really is--so I can't tell you if it even appears to look the same as the real flvtowmv)
As of 7/2/09, the CNET download link downloads the "flvtowmv.exe" file and it works.

hi all, I wasn't able to respond earlier.

thanks to Ginomai for solving the mystery, it seems that something really happened to original link I posted.

link is now updated.

Downtown said...

Worked perfect and didn't cost a dime, everything i could ask for.

Jet5 said...

Use the updated link for the free one - it really is free to use.

(There is another program of the same name which requires registration - that may be what caused the confusion.)

Mike said...

I just download it from the 1st link, installed it in 2 minutes, and yes it is free,

Thanks for the great share.

Mechelle said...

Final Events said...

Most of the time it works great! There are some .flv files that will make the program abort.

Sad, but true.

Bruno Valentia said...

Worked like charm for me, and quick too!

K_Todd said...

This worked for me within 3 minutes after downloading and installing from the link provided. It's free, no unsightly watermarks; the quality is surprisingly good and the video is in synch with the audio after conversion.

Wow, thanks for the great recommendation Flanture!
