FLV converter that works for Vegas Video?

    I have tried Riva flash video converter (to AVI) , these converted
    clips did not work at all in Vegas Video. Then I tried Pazera
    converter, and at least vegas could then import the audio, but not the
    video. Pezara has options that can be set for video, but I just left
    that all at default, as I don't have a clue what Vegas needs. Possibly
    it would work for the video too, if I knew what to change. Is there
    some FLV converter that does produce Vegas-compatible video clips?

    Vegas can only import Flash up to, as I recall, version 5 :-(

    That freebie MPEG Streamclip will turn lots of things including FLVs, into

    So will that other freebie called Super.

    Well is there some difference between DV AVI format and regular AVI?

    There is no such thing as regular AVI.

    AVI is a container file type. The contents of the file can vary

    From a practical standpoint, DV-AVI is a relatively uncompressed flavor of
    AVI, one that is relatively easy to edit.

    Yea...gotta do it by converting to another intermediate format first.
    I got Total Video Converter, and by converting to WMV format, this
    worked. This produced a WMV video which loaded and plays fine in Vegas
    Video. thanks!

  7. Total Video Converter is great, but a little buggy for the price. In
    particular, I hate the way it automatically installs the player and
    defaults all file extensions to it. Boy, that still has me cursing it out.
