FLV is one of the most popular video containers online. With some browser tricks, you can download streaming video from popular websites as FLV files. However, these files do not work well with tablets and smartphones, if at all. If you prefer the common MP4 or AVI files then you can convert your downloaded FLV with FLV Crunch.

FLV Crunch, which is only available for OS X, has a straight and simple UI. It basically asks you to add the files you want to convert, after which you can select the frame rates, bit rate, and output format. It also supports batch processing so that you can add as many files as necessary.

You can crop your videos during the conversion process, and even choose a preset resolution. One useful feature allows you to set an action once the conversion process is done. You can choose between bounce dock icon, beep, quit, sleep, and display alert – making it very useful if you have to leave your computer alone.

Although it is being advertised as an FLV converter, it also accepts a bunch of input files including MPEG, M4A, 3GP, Quick Time, FLAC, and more. FLV Crunch’s simple controls and robust conversion is a great candidate to be your primary video conversion tool for your Mac.
