How to convert FLV to AVI for BlackBerry?
1. Download and launch Foxreal FLV ConverterCUDA here. Then the main interface will pop up as below:
2. Add FLV Files
Click "Add" button to import your target FLV file into the FLV to AVI converter program. Now the FLV to AVI Converter supports all kinds of FLV files without installing extra codecs, which includes On2 VP6 video FLV, H263 video FLV, NellyMoser audio FLV, etc.
3. Adjust the Audio and Video Parameters
Select *.avi formats (Divx AVI, Xvid AVI or Divx HD) in the pull-down menu of "Format" as the output format.
Click "Settings", you are able to change the video/audio settings: video codec, frame rate, resolution (frame size), etc. Actually, the default setting profile offered for conversion has the best quality. But, if you like, you can adjust them for our reference. For example, you can customize avi video resolution: 160*120 176*144 240*180 320*240 355*288 480*270 720*576 800*600 1024*768 as you like.
Hint: 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.
4. Select the Output Directory and Convert
When you have completed the settings, you can go on to select an output directory by clicking "Output" button. And then click "Convert" in the main interface to start FLV to BlackBerry conversion. Once the conversion is done, you can transfer the converted AVI files to your BlackBerry for playing.
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.

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.
