RichFLV is Rich Indeed

Posted by Sravan | July 29, 2008 .

RichFLV is an Adobe AIR app that can edit FLV files. It is also the only FLV editor, according to Ted Patrick.

There aren’t many instances where one might need to edit FLVs, it being mainly used as the common compressed output format. But ‘many’ doesn’t mean ‘any’. You might simply want to edit all the fluff off your favorite youtube video.

Even if you aren’t the editing kind, the installer for the latest version of RichFLV is just 592.3KB, it blows up to 723.4KB upon installation, and it is good to have it on your desktop. As an FLV player.

Using RichFLV is very easy and user-friendly and I was able to edit a few sample videos in seconds. It can read FLV Metadata, read/edit/modify/delete cuepoints, export the FLV to various formats (mp3, JPEG, PNG, SWF, XML), and jump forward and backward. The last feature is what I find especially useful because MPlayer and VLC often fail/hang during forward seeks.

I hope that the next version of the AIR app includes the drag and drop feature. Right now, every FLV needs to be opened in the usual tiresome File->Open manner.

Benjamin Dobler, the creater of the RIA, and the owner of www.richapps.de, is a freelance Flex/AIR/Flash developer and is looking for a fulltime Flex Job in Berlin or San Francisco (if you help with the Greencard). Grab him before anyone else.

    Do you have a user manual for Rich FLV. I desperately need to know how to use it today but am a little slow technically speaking.

    General: Guys, Benjamin Doble’s RichApps site has been hacked. :-(

    Rita, AFAIK there isn’t any documentation for this. At least it isn’t shipped with the installer.

    You can do three things:
    1. Leave a comment here about what features you exactly need so some of us can help you out.
    1. Mail Benjamin to see if he has any documentation: info AT richapps DOT de.
    2. Mail me: 2bsravan AT gmail DOT com.
