RichFLV 4.0 Beta

by James 28 November 2008 8 Comments

RichFLV is a freeware program that allows you to edit Flash Video Files and then export them as FLV, MP3, SWF or even Jpeg and PNG.



I wanted to edit a Flash Video File, basically to cut out parts of it. I didn’t want to transcode the file to another format, edit it and then transcode it back to FLV, I wanted something that would allow me to edit the FLV file directly.
There are some programs that can do that, but most of them are commercial. In fact, the only freeware program I found was RichFLV.
I felt very comfortable with it as soon as I started using it. Very easy to use, it has an intuitive interface. I had no problems in editing my Flash Video File and then exporting the cut version that I needed.

I’m keeping this one because it’s quite handy and because I hope that it will develop into something outstanding in the future, I have a good feeling about it.

    Alex, it still works fine for me. The problem could be that the author’s website was hacked a few days ago, so that might have caused some trouble.

    Another alternative would be avidemux 2.4 GDK . It can be found at avidemux.org it is free and open source too. You can edit .FLV directly, and tons of other formats too, even Windows Media Center recordings (DVRMS files). You can slice and dice video, change the audio, change the delay of audio in a video, and append video to video. Honestly, I couldn’t live without it, and it is updated constantly. Very easy and intuitive to use, there is NO learning curve even for a video newbie such as myself.
