Converting flv file into avi file without software

In this post I am going to tell you how to convert a flash file(.flv) into .avi file, and that too without installing any additional software. Many paid softwares and free softwares are available on the net which enable you to convert a .flv file into .avi file, but why waste your hard disk memory when the video conversion can be done by following a simple trick. Before I tell you the trick let me thank my friend who told me about this method. Just implement the following steps-

Step1
Download this rar file, extract it to any folder. That folder will comprise of many files, one such file would be named "ffmpeg". Now paste this file in the Windows folder, usually the path of the Windows folder is C:\Windows. This file is a binary file with precompiled instructions.

Step2
Suppose we have to convert a .flv file named A.flv which is present in the folder Max. Consider that the folder Max is located in C:, so the path of the .flv file would be C:\Max\A.flv. Go to command prompt, type "cd C:\Max", we would be enterting the Max folder comprising of the file A.flv. Now type "ffmpeg -i A.flv A.avi", this command will convert the .flv file into .avi file.

I hope this post was useful, if you have any doubts fell free to tell me and I shall solve your query.

I've captured two minDV tapes so far with 28 more to go of our home movies from the last 10yrs or so.

However i'm obviously doing something wrong for them to be so large. A 90minute tape is taking up 106gb of space on my computer.

I'm on Vista Ultimate x64 using a Sony DCR-HC21.

I used Nero Vision to capture and I chose the capturing template AVI, which below shows the video and audio compressor as: No Compression.

Should I be choosing DV Type-2 instead? It gives option for Type 1 too, but I wanted to capture in the best quality onto hard drive first and work with minor editing before compressing them into something smaller. Minor editing as in only cutting and splicing.

Right now i'm trying to find another program to capture the tapes to see if they make such a large file too. I don't plan to use Nero except for burning discs. Just in the learning phase at the moment and all I had.

Any help is very much appreciated.
