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
    DV-AVIs.

    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
    considerably.

    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.
