Default .mov to .flv converter

Can anyone recommend a good freeware that converts quicktime files to flash (.flv)

PC (preferably) but Mac is ok too.

Thanks!!!

Default yeah...

That's the one I have. It encodes brilliantly from .mpeg .avi .wmv but for some reason .mov is loaded with errors. I've adjusted the settings every which way bu nothing seems to work.

Thanks!

didn't read it all, but I assume you're doing this for web. http://gallery.menalto.com/node/41056 there's that. And if you have your site hosted with dreamhost, they have a cool easy to do thingy where you upload it, select your options and you're done.

you might also be compressing your mov with the wrong codec. http://www.rivavx.de/index.php?encoderhelp&L=3

ffmpegx

or maybe:

VisualHub
(this one isnt freeware, but will handle almost anything you can throw at it.)

Riva is a little buggy, email them. If you have it, as some folks do, quicktime Pro seems to do it even better than flash does

Total Video Converter might do it, but I'm not certain, I haven't used it in some time. There should a trial version you can use...
