    You should be able to install both ffmepeg & winff from the repositories. I just checked my 13.04 and have both installed. No need to make your life more complicated than it needs to be.

    Do you mean this one?:

    Code:
    sudo -E wget --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/$(lsb_release -cs).list && sudo apt-get --quiet update && sudo apt-get --yes --quiet --allow-unauthenticated install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get --quiet update

    Winff is just a GUI for ffmpeg I believe. I'm not at all versed on various audio and video codecs, sorry.

    You can go to winFF.org. WinFF is a nice GUI to convert videos. Following the Download link you get to a Linux Installation Instructions. Follow those and you can install WinFF with Synaptic

    Looks like the information you are after concerning the correct formats for the 'WinPhone' is here. Several different versions of this phone so this page could do with close reading by the look of it. As for the best copy of FFmpeg for Ubuntu you should perhaps look at this page.
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Re: Trying to convert .flv to .mp4

    andrew.46's links indicate that the phone supports H.264 video and AAC-LC audio, which are in all likelihood the codecs contained in the FLV file, so all that needs to be done is remuxing the video & audio streams into an MP4 container.

    Code:
    ffmpeg -i input.flv -c copy output.mp4
    This will work on 99% of FLV files produced in the last few years. If that doesn't work, try the following instead (and consider updating to a recent ffmpeg, either compiling with the guide in andrew.46's post, or by downloading a static copy from the ffmpeg website):

    Code:
    ffmpeg -i input.flv -acodec copy -vcodec copy output.mp4
