Is there any api that i can use to convert avi to flv besides going to the goodies page?

While there is not a published API for doing that (that I am aware of), you could always take a stab at automating the panel interaction, though that would be pretty difficult.

Alternately you can just do the conversion on your own computer.

Additionally, ffmpeg is available from the command line in the shell (which ffmpeg); so you could also cobble together your own routines, which should work up until you overload the server with all that video processing that should probably done off the server box. :wink:


There is always the concern of exceeding system resource limits on a shared server when doing stuff like this. It might make more sense to download the files to your local machine for conversion, then upload the finished product to your server after that.
