Portable Flv Converter
Portable Flv Converter is a program that you can use to turn FLV, F4V and SWF files into several file types, including AVI, MPG, WMV, MOV and 3GP. But it can also prepare items for iPod devices.
Since installation is not required, you can place Portable Flv Converter on a removable device and directly run its executable file on any computer. More importantly, the Windows registry keys remain unchanged.
The tool comes with a user-friendly interface. Items can be added to the file list via the file browser or "drag and drop" functionality. It is possible to convert multiple videos simultaneously.
In the queue you can find out the name, source type, time, size, frames per second, progress and status of each video. After the output destination and extension have been specified, you can proceed with the encoding procedure with the default settings.
Experienced users can fiddle with the audio and video settings when it comes to the quality, size, frame rate, codec, aspect ratio, volume level, bit rate, channel mode and sample rate. Unfortunately, you cannot create output profiles or restore settings to default.
In addition, you can preview clips in a built-in media player, specify the thread priority and log level, remove an item from the list or clear the entire file queue, as well as set the tool to display error messages in dialogs.
The video conversion tool needs a moderate amount of system resources to finish a task in reasonable time. It is very responsive and comes with a help file. No errors have occurred during our tests and Portable Flv Converter did not freeze or crash. The output videos have a fair image and sound quality. However, you cannot set the tool to minimize to the system tray or to automatically turn off the computer or to open the output directory after encoding.
