Anyone know a free and trusted FLV to WMV or AVI converter, I could use for uploading Youtube videos?

Free FLV Converter | Flash Video Converter for Desktop - FLV.com

Just downloaded the .exe file for this FLV converter, seems to be trustworthy, but if anyone knows any other converters which are better it would be appreciated.

What's the difference between uploading a video to YouTube directly and using a converter?

I presume you mean to convert the FLV files that you download from You Tube so that you can view them on your PC? Your post made me think you wanted to convert FLV files for uploading to You Tube!
If the former is what you are trying to do then the free Irfanview will play FLV files eliminating the need to convert. When you convert a video file to another format you inevitably loose some quality and very often produce a much bigger file than the original so avoid converting if you can!

Clearly if you have a video file in a format that is uploadable to You Tube there would be no point in converting it first, you would only create a bigger file and loose quality at the same time, a real "lose lose" situation!

I wanted to convert FLV files into a format which could be uploaded to Youtube.

Thanks for your suggestions anyway guys (:

EDIT: Windows Movie Maker doesn't understand the FLV format for some reason, so I needed a converter for that reason too.
