GIF to FLV software on GNU/Linux (or cross-platform)

GIF to FLV software on GNU/Linux (or cross-platform)

Do you know how to convert an animated GIF (only two pics in loop) to FLV or AVI?

"ffmpeg should be able to do this all by itself:

ffmpeg -f gif -i infile.gif outfile.flv

If you prefer a GUI tool, Format Factory can do this, and will run under WINE.

No need to worry, it's available in English!"

"Try this with ImageMagick and ffmpeg :

convert original.gif -coalesce out.gif
ffmpeg -f gif -i out.gif result.flv

Optimizing the gif with ImageMagick before converting to flv is done to resolve transparency problems."
