    Hi all,

    I have started posting a series of tutorials on how to work with multimedia files, flash, video and audio.

    ----

    In this first article, we will concentrate on Flash files: how to download them from websites, how to convert them from one format to another, say .flv to .swf or .avi, how to extract music from Flash movies, and several more cool tricks.

    In the second article, we will talk about video files: splitting and joining them, changing encoding and compression, fixing bitrate discrepancies in audio and video, and other tasks.

    In the last article, we will manipulate audio files: convert between different formats, like .mp3, .ogg, .wav, and others, mix sounds, compose custom pieces by splicing segments from different tracks, and more.

    On top of all that, we will also talk about useful multimedia programs that can help us in our common daily tasks, namely audio and video recording software. Best of all, everything I'm going to show is free. Last but not the least, we will see examples for both Windows and Linux.

    ---

    So, if you are interested:

    Comments are most welcome.

    Cheers,

    Thanks - very useful.

    PS. WinFF is also a nice free application for Linux and Windows. Extract
    audio from .flv, convert between different formats and so on. I use it with
    Ubuntu and am happy with it. I think it will soon be in the repos.

    Edit: It has made it to be included in the Ubuntu 9.04 ('Jaunty') repos.
