I have a bunch of flv videos encoded at 400-vbitrate how do I convert them to 250-vbitrate?

I have already installed ffmpeg and mencoder.

you could just use avidemux. no instructions really needed, as it is mostly self explanatory.

Can you explain how to open an flv file with Avidemux?:confused:

I am doing this on a server. It does not have a gui.

you've got to be kidding!!!

File --> Open --> select your flv file.

What about from command line?

I don't think so.

To change a flash video file to 250Kbps video bitrate you could try using ffmpeg like this:-

ffmpeg -i <yourfilename> -b 250 foo.flv

Then if it works OK maybe someone brighter than me will write a script to convert the bunch.

sorry bud, but you're wrong. i strongly suspect you are using an outdated version. please upgrade to the latest version. it works perfectly fine for me with flv & has for as long as i can remember.
