    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    I had one but I deleted it. Just go to http://vixy.net and it converts them for you then you can download them.

    I use mEncoder from the mPlayer package. It's command line, but the syntax is pretty straightforward.

    mencoder.exe "input file to encode.flv" -sws 2 -vf scale=320:-3 -o "output filename.avi" -of avi -ovc lavc -oac lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=400:acodec=mp3:abitrate=64 2>out.txt

    This will convert the FLV file to a file that your BB should play. You might need to change the scale=320 to match your phone's specs. The only items to worry about are the two bold items making sure to include the quotes.

    I have used the above syntax without issue for all of my FLV conversions.

    mencoder is the best i guess. a cheap frontend for this is called video generator which has been discussed and reviewed a lot here at pinstack: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...ad.php?p=81164
