Hi All,

This post explains how to convert a youtube downloaded flv file to avi file format.

1. Copy the youtube link from the youtube site.
2. Make use of youtube-dl script (install it through Synaptic) and issue this below command

youtube-dl http_youtube_url

3. Convert the flv to avi with this below command:
ffmpeg -i file.flv file.avi [You should have installed ffmpeg prior using synaptic]

You may want to give additional parameters to ffmpeg. Read the manual pages of ffmpeg.

Thats it...
