Windows – convert multiple segments of DVD to FLV


I have a DVD of footage that I need to convert to FLV.

I would rather not convert the whole disk as I only need specific segments. Is there a program that I can input start and end times and to get multiple files of these segments?

Can you also advise on the best settings to use for best quality at the smallest file sizes.

I'm working on a Vista 64bit machine.


Best Answer

The latest release of VLC lets you interactively record segments.

VLC can also transcode videos. You could chain the two operations together if you knew the segment start and stop times. You can use these same commands to write out the segments non-interactively without transcoding.

I'm not certain VLC can transcode into flv - you'll need to check that if you intend to use VLC to convert the stream too.
