FLV to iPod
This tutorial is to show you a step-by-step demonstration of converting the YouTube videos and Google videos, etc, and enjoying them on your iPod player.
First of all, we have to make it clear that the YouTube videos and Google videos streaming online are of the Flash Video file, or FLV.
What is FLV?
FLV, or Flash Live Video file, is a preferred file format that is designed for web playback, offering high rates of compression to deliver video over the Internet using Adobe Flash Player (formerly known as Macromedia Flash Player) version 6, 7, 8, or 9.
Note: Unlike other conversion tools, Moyea FLV to Video Converter will enable you to convert your particular FLV files into the proper video format for playback on your Apple iPod player without the need to install extra codecs or other additional system or third party components for some functionality.
