Description

For my first big project, most of my source material are flash videos downloaded from the internet.

Kdenlive does not accept flash videos.
If I encode the .flv into .avi, a very noticeable loss of quality occurs.
ffmpeg -i video.flv -ar 48000 -ac 2 output.avi

Isn't there a way to include flash videos into our productions without incurring too much quality loss?
What is the best way to handle .flv videos?

All of this would best be documented within our site.
