Hello! I am trying to make a highlight reel of some older Thursday Night Throwdowns. These videos are from before they started offering them for download for premium members, so I had to download them from justin.tv, meaning they are all FLV files. I would like to convert these files to MP4 for editing, but every free program I've tried either has a limit or just sucks. Anyone here have some recommendations?

I'm sorry, I don't have an answer to your issue, but wouldn't it be easier to redownload the videos via giantbomb, seeing as you are a premium member? Worried about data caps?

These videos are from before they started letting you download them from Giant Bomb. They're not uploaded here.

Just use VLC, it transcodes stuff as well as plays everything.

Thanks! It took a little while, but I managed to get the video to convert.

@CharlesAlanRatliff: I use Format Factory. Seems to work fine for me.

I use Handbrake to convert all kinds of video files to MP4 for use in Adobe Premiere.
