This tutorial will explainhow to convert an OGV file to FLV. You will need the ffmpeg audio and video encoder.

Install ffmpeg in debian

#apt-get install ffmpeg

To convert an OGV file to flv file use the following command

ffmpeg -i input_file.ogv output_file.flv

You can shrink the size of the output file using the following command

ffmpeg -i input_file.ogv -s 800×600 output_file.flv

This also reduces the size of the Flash video file.
