The resulting *.flv files play fine with mplayer. I wanted to
convert them to *.swf file and stumbled over the port
multimedia/p5-FLV-Info. Installed it and flvinfo works fine:

$ flvinfo RicardoAlarcnconlosestudiantescubanos1parte.flv 
File name  RicardoAlarcnconlosestudiantescubanos1parte.flv
File size  21521449 bytes
Duration   about 878.942 seconds
Video      13185 frames
  codec    Sorenson H.263
  height   240
  type     interframe/keyframe
  width    320
Audio      33648 packets
  format   MP3
  rate     22050 Hz
  size     16 bit
  type     mono
Meta       3 events

but the converter flv2swf fails with:

$ flv2swf -v RicardoAlarcnconlosestudiantescubanos1parte.flv RicardoAlarcnconlosestudiantescubanos10parte.swf
Cannot set metadata at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/FLV/ line 143.

any idea or any other converter? thx
