I tried it and immediately fell in love! It was so easy to use! After a couple conversions I bought the guys a cup of coffee. A couple more and decided this was too good to abuse! I joined! My life is so much easier!

I had a huge, problematic file to convert that couldn't go through the usual automated conversion process. The Zamzar team responded quickly to my request for help, and they took the extra steps needed to do it manually.

I've used this product for years. And customer service is excellent. Just had an issue where I was charged and I didn't agree with the charge and they took care of it, even though they didn't have to.

David Shelton

It’s my first time using it. I had some complications doing it. I’m not very good at this. But I wrote to the company and I had a lot of help. I’m satisfied with customer service and with the app.

I use Zamar whenever I need to convert audio and video files from multiple submitters to 1 uniform file format for Audio and Video Editing. I can do multiple large files in a short amount of time.

Christopher Bee

Great for when you need a lot of conversions in a short time. You have directly access and can even put the subscription on for just a month.

Sabina Calis

Great thanks to you all for helping me to get the OLD files converted correctly. 20 years, quite a long time, reviewing the files brings much memory to me. That's the best gift I received last year. Thank you all again.

Fantastic service! My mom's computer died and she has 1000+ Word Perfect files she wants to keep for some reason. Since Word Perfect is basically dead, I decided to convert all her files. Zamzar's converter was perfect.

FLV Video Format

FLV Converter

The FLV file, or Flash Video File, was originally developed by Macromedia, a company who were later acquired by Adobe Systems in 2005. FLV files can be opened using software such as Adobe Flash Player and VLC.

Historically Flash video became the de facto file type for almost all video players in the early days of video on the Internet, thanks to the popularity of YouTube, and also the Flash plugin for web browsers, which ensured widespread support for the format. In later years the popularity of the format waned, not least when Apple made a move to HTML5 as their standard file type for streaming video. Sites wuchg as Hulu, Netflix and YouTube itself followed suit in moving to HTML5 for video playback, and in doing so almost killed off the FLV file format.

The file is similar in construction to the standard Flash file (.SWF) in that it stores the audio and the video in much the same way, and just like the standard Flash file it cannot be viewed on iOS.

MP4 Video Format

MP4 Converter

An MP4, sometimes known as an MPEG4, is a multimedia file that is used to store video or audio data. MP4 files are typically smaller in size than other audio or video file types because MP4 files use a mix of compression technologies. Video and audio compression are usually handled by different codecs (audiovisual encoders). The video part is compressed with MPEG-4, a standard that was developed by Moving Picture Expert Group (MPEG), while the audio is typically compressed using AAC compression.

The explosion in popularity of the MP4 format is largely down to Apple and the iTunes Store, as it is the standard format for almost all of the media downloaded from the store. MP4 files are also typically seen when a video is downloaded from the internet.

MP4 files can normally be opened on your computer using Windows Media Player or QuickTime, and can be opened on mobile devices without the need to download any applications.

If you have VLC media player installed on your device, you can also use this to play or convert FLV files. However, with sites like Zamzar you can easily convert multiple files at once, which will save you time if you have several files to convert.

Online conversion tools such as Zamzar are a quick way to convert a FLV file into another format. Just upload the file to the free tool on Zamzar’s website, select another video format to convert it into, and then download. It’s also possible to convert FLV files into other formats using video-editing software like Wondershare Filmora or some media players like VLC. However, with websites like Zamzar you can convert videos without downloading extra software.

FLV files will open in some free media players for Windows like MPlayer, VLC and Winamp. They can also play in Windows Media Player if you download an additional codec to play Flash videos.

Another way to open FLV files on Windows without installing anything new is to use a file conversion site like Zamzar to convert the files to a more easily viewed format like MP4. Just upload one or more FLV files to the tool on Zamzar’s website, select a format to convert to, then ‘Convert Now’, and then download the new files. Zamzar is free for most users.

You can play an FLV file with Windows Media Player if you install an extra codec for Flash videos, or if you convert the file into another format like MP4 first. You can download specific file conversion software, but you might find it even easier to use an online tool like Zamzar. The tool on Zamzar’s website is free for most users, and you can convert FLV videos in just a few clicks. Simply upload your FLV video to Zamzar’s online conversion tool, click to convert it into MP4 or another format, and then download the new video.

You can play an FLV file in programs including VLC media player, MPlayer, or Winamp.

Just upload your FLV file to Zamzar’s website, click to convert it into a format like MP4, and then download your video. MP4 videos will play in most media players and on most devices.
