Convert Youtube video format

In case you want to convert the format of the videos you download from Youtube from flv to say, mpg.. the fabulously powerful DSP codec pack ffmpeg is the tool you need..

Just ensure that ffmpeg is installed in your system.. Follow the steps given to complete the requirement…

  • su -c ‘yum install ffmpeg*’
  • ffmpeg -i old_flv_file.flv new_file_name.mpg

The input file old_flv_file.flv, specified after the “-i” option, gets converted to new_file_name.mpg
