How to convert Flash videos for playback on Android tablets
Online Flash videos are supported on tablets powered by latest Android 3.2 Honeycomb as you only need an up-to-date Adobe Flash Player. However, not always we have an ideal wifi or 3G connection and there are often great online videos that are worth being stored for loop. The solution appears no doubt: download and play it in local. But how?
You could download and use Youtube FLV Downloader (it’s free, and for Windows only) to grab the video from those websites or some browser addon to do the same job. Note that the downloaded .flv Flash videos from Youtube, Facebook, Yahoo or other online video site can NOT be played on Honeycomb tablets. You should convert them to Android-supported formats such as a MP4 video.
Foxreal Video Converter is the solution to above problem. This is a program on Windows or Mac, which means you are unable to install it directly on your Motorola Xoom or other Android tablets. Once you have the the app properly installed on your desktop or laptop, open this video converting tool and import the downloaded Flash video by clicking" Add video" icon on top-left corner.
Click "Settings "button. Choose the profile of Motorola Xoom or any other preset you like. Set video size to original.
Click "OK", select the output directory and start conversion.
Once the conversion finished, plugin your tablet and enable the USB connection. Drag / copy&paste the converted mp4 video to the SD card. Then enjoy the offline Flash playback!
Tips: Videos downloaded from Youtube are usually in the aspect ratio of 16:9 so that we suggest setting output size to original in profile selecting window. It allows you to play the video in perfect full-screen if your device has a widescreen of 16:9 ratio.
