New Tutorial: Convert FLV to MP4 No Quality Lost, No Re-Encoding, No Audio/Video Sync Issues

by ViciousXUSMC on Jan.21, 2013, under Computer, Gaming, Guides

Targeted primarily for XSplit users that save a local copy of live streams. You get a long .FLV file that you can’t edit in your favorite editing programs like Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere. So what do you do? You need to change the video to a format the editor will work with. Problem here is 98% of the people that do that are encoding the video to do it and losing quality in the video as well as wasting time. The other 2% that were technical enough to know how to demux/remux the files into a new container were usually plagued with sync issues.

Well here is the tutorial on how to fix all those issues, of course with 100% free programs and an easy to follow step by step video guide.

Tutorial: Convert FLV to MKV With No Quality Loss & No Re-Encoding

by ViciousXUSMC on Jan.21, 2013, under Computer, Guides

This is the ideal way to convert a FLV video to MKV if you need to. It’s 100% free programs, no quality loss, no time wasted waiting for the CPU to encode the video again, and also as a bonus if you have a long video clip I show you how to split it into smaller clips (good for YouTube) at the same time. So if you do not have a video editor, now you wont need one to do that!
