    We appreciate that but means I will need to learn to do this on my pc then install ffmpeg on her pc and show her how to do it or do it myself.

    I am willing to try to help her out, I will not be charging her for this but first issue is if you can refer to my post #10 please, I am not able to install or open the ffmpeg utility?

  2. ffmpeg is a commandline tool, which mean you cannot open it with a double click. But don't worry, I help you:

    You have downloaded the latest ffmpeg.exe from videohelp, right?
    Open Notepad paste the Code from @jagabo, one of the best persons here on videohelp
    Then save the text file as test.bat or what you want, the .txt must be replaced with .bat
    Place also the ffmpeg.exe in the folder with the bat file and the videofiles
    doubleclick the bat file

    I followed this tutorial to the letter : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcdTIDHm4KM

    So according to that ffmpeg is instaeed. Assuming that is accurate, I go to START, then type ffmpeg which shows ffmpeg.exe but when I click on that it opens a cmd window only for a split second so what can I do next please? I think I am understanding now, I was looking for a Utility with a GUI but seems the "command line" which you guys are referring to is having to work inside of a cmd instead?

  4. 1) Start Notepad.

    2) Copy/paste the lines in the code box in post #28.

    3) File -> Save with Notepad -- when you enter the filename include the extension .bat so Notepad doesn't save with the default extension .txt. For example type "RemuxAll.bat" as the file name (without the quotes) Be sure to save the bat file in the folder with your swf files (or move it there if you've already saved somewhere else).

    4) Use Explorer to navigate to the folder with the swf files. Double click on the bat file. You can delete it when you're done.

    Note that this requires that ffmpeg.exe be in the search path. Or you can specify the entire path to ffmpeg.exe in the batch file. If you don't understand what all this means -- just put a copy of ffmpeg.exe in the same folder as the batch file.

    Sorry flashandpan007, looks like we had both posted at the same time.

    Jagabo, copy/paste both codes in post#28 into notepad?

  6. No, only one. Use the following one, if you have all files in one folder:

    What about the SAVE AS TYPE, the default is .txt or should I save as ALL FILES option please?

  8. Doesn't matter, if you type in .bat at the end of the filename.

    Done, I am seeing the RemuxAll.bat file plus the ffmpeg.exe file in the folder with the swf files on the external drive .

  10. Put the ffmpeg.exe, available here in the forum, in the same folder with copy and paste.

  12. command line tools are perfect for doing the same thing for a very large number of files
    Just wait until it is finished, new files already showing up?

    Yes new files are showing with the extension .mp4. This might take a long time I guess.

    Hey guys, all looks well. Got 170 swf and 170 mp4 files in the folder and playing well it seems. Just one last question please, which is the best free video player you can recommend for these files?
