    Hi,

    Is there a free utility out there capable to convert flash videos to .wmv that can be playable in Windows Media Player for windows 7?

    Unfortunately, WMP on Win 7 cannot play .flv by default and I've been using the portable version of VLC to achieve this but if I could convert those videos to .wmv, that would be great.

    Thanks


    Carlos

    P.S.: The program I'd like to find should be freeware.

    Edit: I'm also looking for a program to convert .MKV files to .wmv.

    Instead of converting Videos every time,
    you can alternatively
    a) install a Codec Pack,
    like K-Lite Codec Pack, LUV Filters, Win7codecs, CCCP (Combined Community Codec Pack) etc.
    and
    b) go to WMP Menu: File>Open (Locate the Flash Video) and watch it.
