I was wondering if there was a way to convert movies in .mov format to .flv? I was also wondering if there was a way to remove the sound from the videos as well? I found, http://www.linux.com/feature/121385. But I didn't see any options to disable sound in them.

Most experts would use mencoder or ffmpeg. Search for these tools and "remove audio".

I do it easily with ffmpeg... give it a try.

+1 ffmpeg -- this can do pretty much any conversion you need, especially if you have ubuntu-restricted-extras and the medibuntu repositories (http://www.medibuntu.org).

I think Avidemux can do it also.

It's easy to use.

ffmpeg -i input.mov -an -sameq output.flv
The -an options tells ffmpeg to ignore the audio and -sameq (optional) will cause ffmpeg to try to match the quality of the input file.

If you don't want to install all the other extra junk ubuntu-restricted-extras supplies you can just install libavcodec-unstripped-51 which will enable some restricted codecs in ffmpeg. Medibuntu will not offer anything you need, unless you're using an earlier version than Intrepid. If you're on Hardy and some older versions, Medibuntu can offer a more capable ffmpeg.

I've included the Medibuntu repositories as a matter of habit on all my installations since Dapper. Perhaps I should stop doing that and see what happens. :)
