    I use download helper to rip some video off youtube and they are in the FLV format.
    I have tried to use compressor to convert these files into something a little more edit friendly, especially since I am using mixed media (converting to HDV 720)

    mac os x 10.6.3
    fcp 7


    I have been using toast 10 just cause it works, but it's SLOOOOOOW.

    I just open the FLVs in MPEG Streamclip (don't forget to install Perian) and export away.

    Given what you are trying to do, your signature is quite ironic :D

    yeah, so true.
    it;s a pet project so quality isn't huge.

    thanks!
