hi guys i am working on an application and i thought of adding a video function where guys can upload and view video clips. now i would like that when someone uploads a clip that is .avi the coldfusion code converts it to .flv so that its viewable in my flex flv_player. is this possible(i mean can coldfusion convert video formats into flv on the fly)? if so is there a snippet that can be shared? thanks

As far as I know there is no tag or cfx or anything like that to allow cf to convert video on it's own. That said you can however use a third party solution like VIDEOzilla to do a command line execute that would invoke the app to convert
the uploaded video files nightly or when ever. You would have to have access to the cfexecute command on your server though. Do a google search on "command line video conversion flv" to find one that best fits your needs.
