Are you looking out for an online video conversion utility which can convert the Flash (FLV) videos MPEG4 format? If yes, you might want to check . Vixy offers online video conversion from FLV format to various formats like AVI for Windows (DivX + MP3), MOV for Mac (MPEG4 +MP3), MP4 for iPod/PSP (MPEG4 +AAC), 3GP for Mobile (MPEG4 +AAC), MP3 (Audio Only).

The primary use-case of Vixy is encoding Youtube based FLV videos to proper format to play in your iPod, iPhone, PSP or any other device.

Vixy uses a compressed domain transcoder technology which converts FLV to MPEG4 faster and less lossy than a typical transcoder.

In order to use Vixy to convert the FLV video to the various formats listed above, follow the steps below

1.) Navigate your browser to Vixy.

2.) You must also have the URL of the FLV video handy with you. If you wish to convert an interesting video which you just saw on Youtube, enter the URL of the Youtube video in the input box on the homepage of


3.) When you submit a URL, it will download and convert to the video format, and then you can download the converted file.


Vixy also offers a offline desktop called Converter Desktop Version. It’s free but with Ads. It’s still in BETA release so it will expire on 31st March 2010.

When i tried the service, i got errors like Header error, or ‘Cannot resolve address Youtube down?’ etc, well the reasoning for these errors is that ‘s servers and networks are not used to heavy load, so the conversion often fails. Please wait for a while and try it again.

The other software i recommend, if you are planning to do transcoding for your dvd’s to play on your iPhone, iPod or PSP, try WinX DVD Ripper Platinum.  WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is available for free till September 30th.
