    I heard that some videos are in hd or something that gives this error when trying to convert them from FLV. However, I'm seeing this error a lot now and it's pissing me off! Is there any converter that will work on these files as well?

    Thank you!

    HD vids are in a mp4 container generally but i heard it's possible to put the streams in a flv container too.

    I don't understand your question to be honest

    I don't understand your question either. Can you direct us to an example?

    Some videos when I try to convert them (tryed on different conversion programs) don't even load. You try to load the FLV file to convert and get the error: width or height is 0
    And it wont even open these files. It's happened on several files, some from youtube and some from porn sites.

    yes, vlc converts them also. that's why i suggested it. lookup transcoding.

    OK, so I found another video with this error and opened it OK in VLC, but where do you go in VLC to transcode it? I looked through all the menus and didn't see transcode anywhere?

    Google ffmpeg
    I use it for all of my video converting and have never had an issue with flv
    It's primarily command line though unless you use a windows GUI.
    I'm on linux however so I cannot help you in that regard.
