FLV Crunch does more than just convert FLV files into other types of files. According to the website, it can convert all of the following formats:
MPEG 1 (.mpg),
MPEG 2 (.vob),
MPEG 4 (.mp4),
Cell Phone videos (.3gp),
Windows Media Player files (.wma, .wmv),
RealPlayer files (.ra, .rm) *rv10 video codec only ,
Divx AVI (.avi),
Digital Video (.dv),
Into these formats:
Windows Media Video (wmv),
MP3 (audio only),
AAC (audio only).
Not only does it convert files, but it also allows users to control the frame rate, the birate, and the size of the file being converted. You can convert files into something for your iPod, your computer or your TV.
All of it is set up in an easy to use fashion that fits right in with the Mac aesthetic. While some of the options are a little advanced, none of them should be off putting to casual users as they are all presented so simply.
I tried it out on a number of videos I'd downloaded from YouTube and it worked on all but one. The status kept informing me that there was a problem, but there was no indication what that problem might be. The file was a lot larger than the others, but it does play just fine in my VLC player so I'm not sure if file size was the cause of the failure. It would be nice if there was a log that explained why a file can't be converted. Perhaps the developer will do this in the next version.
