How to download YouTube FLV?
Actually YouTube FLV Downloader provides several ways to download FLV from YouTube, MySpace, Metacafe, Dailymotion, etc. But the most popular and easiest way is to capture the FLV URL and download.
Download, install and launch the downloader. You will be attracted by the GUI.
- Capture FLV URL. Select Capture section and you will find the screen icon on toolbar. Enable the Capture function. If the capture function is enabled, you will find the icon with a line in it as is shown in the picture below. Get to the webpage where the video is playing. The downloader will get the FLV URL automatically.
- Create a download task. Select the URL and click the download icon. And then you can set where to put the FLV and name (or rename) it.

How to Edit YouTube FLV?
With downloaded FLV, you can not only enjoy it anytime you like, but also edit them with your own ideas. It’s still free with Moyea FLV Editor Lite.
Now it is beta version, but still powerful. You can replace the audio, extract audio and video, merge several FLV files into one, and so on. With these functions, you are able to make your own MTV, funny movie collections, etc. Besides, if you are Flash genius, you can also add cue points to get more outstanding effects.
- Input FLV.
Still, you have several ways to input, open it directly on timeline (only a single file can be added at one time), or import to Resource List. You can click the relative buttons on toolbar. Here we will use the latter way.
Click the button, you can import from My Computer. Just find where the local FLV files are, select them and import.
- Preview FLV.
Once imported, the files will be shown in Resource List. You can double click on the video to play it on Preview Pane. There are thumbnails for each FLV, easier for you to get the right one.
To edit the specific FLV or FLVs, you can drag them to the timeline. To preview the effects, you can click the play icon on the Preview Pane.
- Edit FLV.
You are able to drag as many FLV files as you like to Timeline at one time. The files on timeline will be exported as a single video. With the buttons marked on the picture above, you are able to cut FLV, replace FLV audio and video, and join the FLV files.
You can play the FLV on Timeline and click Scissors to cut the FLV at the point where it’s playing.
In the process of editing, you may want to drag and place some FLV files tightly together. You can enable the magnet button (it’s enabled by default), and drag one edge of a clip tightly to the edge of another clip. Actually, this program will ignore blank parts (except the blank at the beginning) on timeline while export the FLV.
Rip FLV video and audio
By default, once the FLV is opened on Timeline, the FLV video and audio are linked. To rip them, you can click Unlink button. Thus you can delete the original video or audio, and replace with a new one. To join and move video and audio together, you can select the video and audio by “Ctrl”, and click Link button.
Make your own MTV
With the above functions, you will find it so easy to make your own MTV.
Just unlink the FLV video and audio, select and delete the original audio and import a new one. By cutting and rearranging the video, you can get the right video effect you like.
- Export FLV
To export the FLV, you can click the Export button on Toolbar. And then you can change the export folder, name the file, and choose the export type.
You can also select to open Export Folder after finish, add FLV to YouTube FLV Downloader Media Library (not available in beta version), or add it to Moyea FLV to Video Converter Pro 2 (free trial).
Click Start and you will get the file in seconds. And then you can share it online, or enjoy it on your portable devices (once converted with Moyea FLV to Video Converter Pro 2).
