Have you ever downloaded an FLV file? Once you have these files, you need something to view them with. Let’s say you want to extract the audio from the video file? It’s not always easy to do. But, there’s an Adobe Air application that will do this for you. RichFLV allows you to open any FLV file and export any information you want. You can convert it into an SWF file to play in a web browser. You can extract the audio. You can even save an image from the file.
There are a variety of options in there, including maintaining aspect ratios. This type of application is going to give you a better understanding of the metadata inside the FLV. You can even add metadata to it if you wanted to. Not only is RichFLV free, there is no easier way to extract the audio from an FLV. It will run cross-platform, as all Adobe Air apps do. Some of the apps made for Adobe Air don’t look the greatest, I grant you that. However, this one looks great. I’m highly impressed with it.
