FLV to MKV conversion?!


i'm a complete noob to MeGUI and video encoding/decoding converting scene... I have tried looking for a proper "How To" for a while now... can't seem to find anything... perhaps I don't know where to look...

Anyhow, I've got these .FLV files which are kinda large and won't run properly on my android devices... I would like to encode them to smaller .mkv files that will... How do I do that?!

Thanks in advance,

Most FLV's are just h264 in the flash video container. Try using flvextract to extract the audio and video streams:

Then just remux the streams in the mkv container with mkvmerge (download the latest version at the bottom):

You could also mux them in the mp4 container with Yamb.

If you want to re-encode them to make them smaller, you might still need to remux the streams and then use the one-click encoder option in MeGUI.
