First of all, then first we have to make it clear that the YouTube videos, Google videos, communicating online are of the Flash Video file, or FLV file format.

What is FLV?
FLV, or Flash Live Video file, is a preferred file format that is designed for web playback, offering high rates of compression to deliver video over the Internet using Adobe Flash Player.
FLV content cannot be played back directly but must be embedded in (or linked from) an SWF file. You create (or download) a "container" SWF file from which to play the FLV file. The most common approach is to use an SWF file that functions as a media player with screen and playback controls. Notable users of the FLV format include YouTube, Google Video, Reuters.com, Yahoo! Video and MySpace, you can downloaded video from youtube to your computer with flv converter programe,it Integrates the FLV Downloader to the program., it is able to save and download any streaming video from youtube,Google Video, Myspace, Metacafe, Dailymotion, iFilm, Music, eVideoShare, StreetFire, etc. off to your computer's hard drive free.

What is AVI?
Defined by Microsoft, AVI stands for Audio Video Interleave. It is a special case of the RIFF (Resource Interchange File Format). AVI is the most common format for audio and video data on the PC, and it is most suitable for editing.

AVI is Microsoft's response to Apple's QuickTime technology. Early AVI files were limited on choice of video and audio codecs, quality, and resolution. However, with the introduction of DirectShow, AVI became a very flexible and powerful architecture. Some new codecs, such as DivX and XviD enable AVI files to have similar or even better quality than DVD.

For further processing and editing, we need frequently convert the FLV files downloaded from the Internet to AVI files to play on BlackBerry. Moyea FLV to Video Converter Pro is a fine choice to convert FLV files to AVI, and besides conversion, it provides the function to edit the created AVI files.

In the panel of "Include Audio in Output File", you can change the video settings: the audio codec, etc. Depending on the codecs, you may also change the sample rate, channel, frame size and bit rate.

If you choose "mp3" as the audio codec, you may encounter some problems. The MP3 compressor does not work correctly in video files and often causes the conversion to abort in the middle. And we suggest that it's better not to use this one.
