Today I was trying to take a part of a YouTube video and getting it inserted into a PowerPoint presentation. I’m pretty sure the workflow that eventually accomplished this feat could use some improvement.
I started by grabbing the FLV and converting it to AVI using Vixy.net.
Then I tried to simply bring the AVI into Windows Movie Maker, and clip part of it. However, that didn’t work. Trying to save the file as a WMV resulted in an error, and playback resulted in sound, but no video. Not good.
So, I took my AVI’s at that point and thanks to this site, used Prism to convert them to WMV, which I could then bring into Movie Maker and get my clip.
So, like I said, there’s an extra step in here that I’m not thrilled with. Is there something about the AVI files that I could correct that allow it to be clipped in Movie Maker, or is there some way to take the FLV direct to WMV? Either one would save a step! 🙂
