this is a very good converter program... i recommend it to lots of people who report stellar results... it's highly rated and very capable for many types of needs... including ipods and just about every type of file i know of... including SWF (shock wave flash)...

I like FFMPEG, it is free and will convert Flash files. But it is a Command line program, not too hard to use though.

There is also a GUI version, but I haven't been able to get it to convert a Flash video yet. Though I'm sure it can.

Although it's considered "slow", I would highly recommend the best freeware program out there: SUPER. It handles everything, including the .flv to .avi option being asked for.

I would recommend you use the Mirror download from the link above, the main site is pretty confusing to find the download.
