I have converted a wmv file to a flv file, but it has lost a lot of quality. How to prevent this? I need the file to be smaller in size.

Some references for conversion to FLV using ffmpeg.

If you are comfortable with the command line, check out FFMpeg. Nothing compares to it in terms of video conversion.

In fact, the file is converted with help of FFMpeg. =) – Bad Thing That Always Sxxxx Sep 13 '09 at 16:24
It takes quite a few options with ffmpeg to get the work done. – nik Sep 13 '09 at 16:41
If you used ffmpeg then post the command that you used so we can tell you what you're doing wrong. – stib Jun 7 '14 at 5:15
