Hey all, first time posting here.
I have an FLV file I've downloaded, that I'm trying to convert/burn to DVD.
The file is 789mb.
MediaInfo shows the file encoded with AVC (video) High@L5.1, 720x400, 16:9, Variable frame rate @ 23.976fps; AAC (audio) Version 4, 2 channels, 48.0 KHz, Video delay 45ms
GSpot says "Unknown Flash FLV format", shows frames at 22.587, 44100Hz 2chnl audio
SUPER also shows 44100Hz for the audio (or 44.1KHz), doesn't show anything helpful for video
ConvertXtoDVD shows video as h264, est framerate 23.98, yuv420p, 720x400, offset 0ms; audio as AAC, 48000Hz, stereo, offset 30ms
FLV Extract fails on the file, saying it doesn't support video & audio types (just gives type ids as reference).
I've tried converting to DVD using SUPER, ConvertXtoDVD, and DVDFlick. SUPER fails if using FFMPeg, Mencoder works, but results in out-of-sync audio.
CXtoDVD seemed to have synced audio & DVDFlick both result in out-of-sync audio as well.
Actually, ConvertXtoDVD resulted the best, if I let it try to auto-correct sync issues with the audio, the problem is, every second or so, there was a clip or dip or whatever in the audio, hard to describe.
If I removed the auto-correct functionality, audio sounds fine, but is out of sync.
Video looks great in all conversion attempts.
BTW, despite getting mixed results on codec probes, video plays fine in FLVPlayer (tho skipping to a diff scene has quite a delay).
While I've converted other files to DVD in the past, this is my first attempts with FLV files, so any helpful info would be appreciated.

Variable frame rate probably cause the problem.
Can you play the flv in windows media player? If not try install ffdshow and set it to decode flv and h264.
Then try this
DirectShowSource("moviename.flv", fps=23.976, convertfps=true)
'movie.avs' under the same directory that your .flv file is.
( see https://forum.videohelp.com/topic357074.html#1891463 )
Try open the movie.avs in windows media player and see if it works. Then try open the movie.avs in a converter like dvdflick, convertxtodvd
MrC, AVStoDVD doesn't work, says it cannot determine play time.
Baldrick, .flv wouldn't play in WMP, did avs trick you suggested, that returned this error: "No combination of filters could be found to render the stream."
Any thoughts? My thought is maybe I'm missing a codec somewhere? But the FLV itself plays fine, and the converters pick up the video fine, so I don't think that's it...
Hey MrC, I'll upload tonight, leaving ATM.
Sorry for the delay. MrC, I've sent you a pm with a link to the movie.
Let me know if you are able to make any progress.
Just a note, MrC is checking out the video. Anyone else that wants to try their hand at converting/syncing the video, please let me know, I'll PM the link.
I've found MediaCoder will sync & convert it properly, but it will only do 13 min segments for some reason...
the process with MediaCoder is explained here: http://www.applian.com/aac/forum/showthread.php?t=318&page=4
probably some setting twisting mencoder into a eventual crash.
since you insist.
ffmpeg -i "The Professional.flv" -vcodec copy -vbsf h264_mp4toannexb leon.h264 -acodec copy leon.aac
simply remux setting video framerate
either to mp4 or mkv
mp4box -fps 23.97602397602398 -add leon.h264 -add leon.aac leon.mp4
use any number of converters mentioned.
like mrc's avstodvd
there's a fair amount of freedom.
like going to step 2 and working directly with the demuxed streams,
indexing the video with dgavcindex for frame accurate seeking.
obviously frameserving with avisynth, maybe even filtering.
(if the source wasn't so clean)

thanks tripp, i'll check that out
Might get more help if you posted the upload link here instead of PMing to one member.
pm'd 2 members, don't feel like having the download available to the world when it's hosted privately and is ~800mb
thx for your input though.
I know it has been a while, but if you still have the file, I would like to give a crack at it.
