    Sorry. I missed the part about Windows. There are tutorials on how to build ffmpeg under Windows:
    http://arrozcru.no-ip.org/ffmpeg_wiki/tiki-index.php. But it sounds rather complicated.

    I'm much more acquainted with Linux that Windows, so I probably can't help you to find Windows specific software.

    function convert_media($filename, $rootpath, $inputpath, $outputpath, $width, $height, $bitrate, $samplingrate)
    {
    $outfile = "";
    // root directory path, where FFMPEG folder exist in your application.
    $rPath = $rootpath."\ffmpeg";
    // which shows FFMPEG folder exist on the root.
    // Set Media Size that is width and hieght
    $size = $width."x".$height;
    // remove origination extension from file adn add .flv extension, becuase we must give output file name to ffmpeg command.
    $outfile =$filename;
    $out=explode(".",$outfile);


    // Media Size
    //$size = Width & "x" & Height;

    // remove origination extenstion from file and add .flv extension , becuase we must give output filename to ffmpeg command.

    $outfile = $out[0].".flv";
    // Use exec command to access command prompt to execute the following FFMPEG Command and convert video to flv format.

    $ffmpegcmd1 = "/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg -i ".$inputpath."/".$filename. " -ar " .$samplingrate." -ab ".$bitrate." -f flv -s ".$size." ".$outputpath."/".$outfile;

    // I am using static image, you can dynamic it with your own choice.
    $out=explode(".",$filename);

    $outfile = $out[0].".jpg";

    $ffmpegcmd1 = "/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg -i ".$inputpath."/".$filename." -vframes ".$no_of_thumbs." -ss 00:00:03 -an -vcodec ". $image_format." -f rawvideo -s ".$size. " ". $outputpath."/".$outfile;

    $ret = shell_exec($ffmpegcmd1);

    // Execute this command using exec command or any other tool to grab image from converted flv file.
    return $ffmpegcmd1;

    sridivya, if you would only look into the help for ffmpeg :)

    it says:

    Audio options:
    -aframes number set the number of audio frames to record
    -ab bitrate set audio bitrate (in kbit/s)
    -ar rate set audio sampling rate (in Hz)
    -ac channels set number of audio channels
    -an disable audio
    -acodec codec force audio codec ('copy' to copy stream)
    -vol volume change audio volume (256=normal)


    so, remove -an from your params list, and it will work :)

    I did try ffmpegx. After a lengthy conversion, the movie & audio only played in slow motion. Or you may try this Video Encoder Engine for Adobe Flash, my friends recommend it to me. It can help you convert video format to .flv(flash format) using php script, C++, Visual Basic, Delphi, ASP, .NET, ColdFusion, it's safe and works pretty well for me, I think it deserves for a try.
    http://www.flash-video-soft.com/flash-video-sdk/
    Hope it helps. :)

    Hi!
    Are you still here?)):p
    You can try to use another program to convert video files to flash!
    I prefer to use VisiFly program, it is very easy in use, step by step program. You can convert all video (avi, wmv, mpeg, mp4, mov) to flv or swf. Also these program allows to create HTML to use it on your website.:)
