I've never used VLC to convert video files so I am trying it now.
I am converting a .flv file to .mp4. When I got to the stage you said, I clicked Convert/Save and was given a new window for further settings, eg convert to which file type. It seems to be working although I did ask to see the putput while it was converting and it has shown the first frame but no others. However there is progress as I can see the time/length indicators changing. I can also hear sound.
BTW that link you gave just shows an empty page. The link you need should be this one I think;
So, why isn't it working for you?
What file format are you converting from and what format to? I'm not interested in file names, just formats.
How long is this video? If it is long you may not see the slider move much but the time elapsed should be showing.
Windows? If so, which?
Have anybody here used VLC Player to convert a video/audio format? I wanted to convert a video; so I did all steps mentioned here: "http://www.pcprompt.net/2011/09/video-convert-using-vlc-media-player.html" but when I clicked "start" button at the last step, the dialog box closed and nothing happened. Firstly I thought It might be converting in background but CPU Usage was very low in Task Manager. What have I to do? I wanna convert my video by VLC Player.
