Video Conversion (particularly .fla to .avi or .wma or .mpeg)

After frustrating myself for about a half-an-hour with SUPER ©, which, despite my re-installs and resolution changes, has no "encode" button to begin the process (which is, you know, the whole point of the program...), I am looking for a program (preferably free) that can convert videos from YouTube and Google Video into .avi's or other file types.

I am working on a documentary style project for one of my courses, and it requires some video clips that I've found on YouTube, however, I can't use them unless they are in a more conventional format (.fla isn't cutting it). Any help?

Don't know about AVI's but I found last week a great (free) YouTube->MP3 converter, which works perfect. If I'm not mistaken the same company who made it also has similar for AVI's, I'll take a look.

edit: yay

Hmm, thanks! I'm trying one last program (Mediacoder) to see if it will work, and then I'll give your link a go, Morsh.

Maybe Virtualdub, it will take you no time, if there is no such "save as" it won't work.

Hooray! Works!

Okay, what I did is download with DownloadHelper, and then used this neat little program called MediaCoder. It worked much better than SUPER © (in that it actually had, you know, functions ).

Sorry to bother everyone...

Though as long as I have you here, are there any other (free) video editing programs better than WMM2?

VirtualDub for the hardcore.

or www.jahshaka.org for fancy stuff.

Also, for those that dont know, to download from YouTube, just add "kiss" to the URL.

eg,

becomes

So yeah, sometimes media coder works, sometimes it doesn't.

Guess what?

I didn't realize you could just change the file extension and it would convert. Huh. So after frustrating myself, it took all of 5 seconds to solve my problem...

Actually, the program I ended up using was Mediacoder. Changing the file name didn't work out as planned, but Mediacoder did a really nice job, has quality sliders and a bunch of other options, and is free.
