Many video-sharing websites like YouTube, Google Video, metacafe, Yahoo! Video,, etc. always provide people with original videos about meaningful, interesting, or important events that happened all over the world in real time, and nearly all of them use FLV format to save these video files.

At the same time, you should hit “[b]Browse[/b]” to decide where to locate the output files; otherwise, they will be exported to a defaulted folder.
