I have MPEG video (.mpg) that I would like to convert to FLV format for use in Flash players. What is the easiest (idiot-proof) way to do this on a Windows machine?

FFmpeg is available for windows (even with a GUI!) and does exactly what you want.

Thanks, I used the WinFF GUI from the site you linked to, it worked just great. – Kip Sep 22 '08 at 14:39

I've used Any Video Converter and it works well. It contains components of FFMpeg and MPlayer in a very nice, easy to use interface. You can download it here:

Mediacoder is a nice program to convert almost anything with a nice intuitive graphical interface.

Use FLV Converter. It has both standard and portable versions, and it's freeware.
