Presumably most people are quite familiar with the video filetype with .flv extension. As a Flash video format, in the past two decade, it can be said to have been in the limelight for a while and even once used as a de-facto standard for many web-based video streaming websites. However, since Adobe has officially ended support for Flash on December 31, 2020, the use of FLV format is doomed to decline.
Instead, Matroska is a free and open container format that can encapsulate an unlimited number of video, audio and subtitle tracks in one .mkv file, and is commonly accepted by a large range of media players, editors, game consoles and other devices. Therefore, many people are increasingly inclined to convert FLV to MKV. No worries, that's the main reason why I've compiled this guide below.
If you know little about video processing and have no idea how to convert Flash videos to MKV format, HD Video Converter Factory Pro would be the best assistant among all FLV to MKV converters screened out from the Internet. The highlights boil down to the following adjective words: straightforward, flexible, user-friendly, easy-to-use, self-explanatory, efficient and multi-purpose.

After loaded, you're allowed to play the FLV files in the built-in player by clicking on each preview button.

We have to admit Flash video is gradually falling out of mainstream use, it's a good choice to convert FLV to MKV or other burgeoning formats for free use on various platforms, websites and devices. Compared with processing video with some online video converters, the desktop application has the inherent advantages. Specifically, you don't need to worry about pop-up ads, slow conversion speed, file size limit and poor network connection.
