How to download and convert youtube video (FLV) be MPEG on LINUX

Hundreds, perhaps thousands of articles have been written about converting youtube video flv to mpeg on linux. Just say, it very simply and small programs to use it. he2. Sambil nunggu dunlutan slesai, kutulis saja tips ini di sini. xixixixi. At first u must have a file with flv extention that download from youtube. Use firefox addons to download youtube video (flv). U r lazy to insert addons ?. 😀 u can play youtube video until finish. Then find your directory cache on firefox. Find that file are biggest of all. Rename that cache to *.flv. After it, install ffmpeg to convert be *.mpeg. On debian system u just type :

apt-get install ffmpeg

if u are using other systems, please verify your self installation. Hehhehe…. dasar newbisss.. To convert, just type on shell like this:

ffmpeg -i videotoconvert.flv -ab 56 -ar 22050 -b 500 -s 320x240 output.mpg

if u want convert to DVD , type on shell like this:

ffmpeg -i input.flv -vcodec mpeg2video -vcodec mpeg2video -b 6000k -r 25.00 -s 720×576 -acodec ac3 -ab 448k -ar 48000 output.mpg

n having fun …

    ha i wrote a similar post to convert flv to mp3.

    There was this rare song which was available as flv audio file.

    seems like i have to make another post with a link to yours for other conversions.

    I’m really inspired with your writing skills and also with the
    format to your blog. Is this a paid subject matter or did you modify it
    your self? Either way stay up the excellent quality writing, it is uncommon
    to look a nice blog like this one today..
