How can I change the file type of a video I downloaded from IDM so I can play it with KMP?

Dinya July 14, 2013

I have downloaded a FLV video from IDM. The format of the video has saved as file type by mistake. After fully downloading the video is not working in KMP. So please explain me how to change the format of the video from file type to MP4 format.

    Did it change file type or file format? You could try to rename the file, only adding .flv at the end to see if it plays. If it changed the format (doubt it if KMP can't play it), then converting the file to the format you wish would need to be done. First try adding .flv to the end of the file name.

    Probably you are talking about a wrong file extension of the video. Right click the video file's icon and select rename and then add .flv at the end of name and remove the incorrect extension. Otherwise, try what others have suggested .

    if there is no other format than flv then this is what you will get, above in the link is the FLV player mention by IDM

    As far as I know KMP should be able to playback FLV files so instead of 'wasting time' converting the video to mp4 I would first try playing it in another media player like VLC or Media Player Classic to make sure the file is not corrupt or anything.

    As for converting it to mp4 there is a multitude of programs that can do it, here are just two examples:

    Another option would be ashampoo SuperEasy Video Converter 2 which is offered in the Rewards section.
