    Can anyone please help me figure out what I need to do to convert it? I have never used ffmpeg before now...

    Thanks!

    Re: How to convert .flv to .wmv with ffmpeg?

    Try reading through this thread. Someone posted a nice bash script for multiple conversions, as well as a single command for one file.

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=343537

    They said that:
    ffmpeg -i movie.flv -vcodec wmv1 -acodec adpcm_ima_wav movie.wmv

    Try and see if that works. If it doesn't, the audio codec looks a bit strange. Maybe try switching it to one of the wmv audio codecs that you posted.

    Also those wmv1 would be for Windows Media Video 7. Changing to wmv2 or wmv3 might affect whether the file plays.

    Good luck.

    Re: How to convert .flv to .wmv with ffmpeg?

    Hi,

    I am no expert but I believe that wmv videos are most commonly held in an asf container along with audio in Windows Media Audio format. Of course other containers are possible and some videos have the wmv suffix etc etc.

    FFmpeg can deal with these:

    Code:
    ffmpeg -formats | grep -i wmv
    [...]
      built on Feb 16 2009 17:19:19, gcc: 4.2.4
    DEVSD  wmv1            Windows Media Video 7
    DEVSD  wmv2            Windows Media Video 8
    D V    wmv3            Windows Media Video 9
    and:

    Code:
    ffmpeg -formats | grep -i wma
    [...]
    built on Feb 16 2009 17:19:19, gcc: 4.2.4
    DEA    wmav1           Windows Media Audio 1
    DEA    wmav2           Windows Media Audio 2
    So one option is to convert to these formats:

    Code:
    $ ffmpeg -i infile.flv -vcodec wmv2 -sameq -acodec wmav2 -f asf outfile.asf
    I will admit that I have not tested these on windows media player, in part because I loathe this software . I would be interested to hear if this works though?

    Hi. I know you already solved this, but, have you tried WinFF? It is a GUI front-end to ffmpeg. I've been using it and works very nice. Although it has a name that suggests it is a Win application, they have versions for different plataforms, including Linux. See here for more info on how to install:

    http://winff.org

    BTW, nice blog!

    My solution or mikewu's . BTW I have just had a look though your blog and saw the references to the Ubuntu Forums there, you have probably heard of the Beginner's Team which attempts to make the Ubuntu experience a little smoother on these forums? Besides being a generally good guy I am a part of this team .

    All the best,

    Change the output codec and the output filename to MP4. So instead of using this:

    Code:
    ffmpeg -i movie.flv -vcodec wmv1 -acodec adpcm_ima_wav movie.wmv
    Use this:

    Code:
    ffmpeg -i movie.flv -vcodec mp4 -acodec aac movie.mp4
    It might not work depending on where FFMPEG came from since MP4 is a proprietary codec. Downloading all of the codec libraries and then building FFMPEG from source is the best way to get support for the most formats and codecs. Cheers!
