Windows 7: FLV to MKV converter

FLV to MKV converter

Anyone use any good software that can convert FLV's to MKV's. I normally use meGUI to do all my converting but for some reason it crashes when converting the audio.

Freeware is always better but paid software works to.

Thanks.

-update-

I forgot to add that i tried to use FLV extract to get the 264 file, adts audio file, and a text timing file. When i try to mux the 264 file and the adts file the audio is out of sync. I know this is why you have the text timing file but I dont actually know how to add it in to the meGUI, or maybe there is another program that can do it.

This one too. Output quality is excellent: Format Factory Home Page - Free media file format converter

Here is a little video I made that shows how to use it:

PS: It does do .mkv although it is not listed on the webpage - funny

Although the program is pretty simple, it always helps to have a little guideline to get started. There are a lot more functions that come with that program. I use it a lot to crop videos - works really well. If you want to try it, click on "Option" after you selected the video file. I think I'll make a new video to include that.

You can actually enter a target size for the video and Freemake will adjust the quality for you.

Please note however that FLV has a far better compression than MKV which is why it is used online. The next best is probably MP4.

I did notice that it did create the file at the max value that i had. I'm running the converted MKV though meGUI now and it looks like the (expected size is 159MB atm) if it says down this low i will just double convert all the videos.
