To cut frames from the tail (with sample values):
mencoder -endpos "00:20:33" -ovc copy -oac copy in.avi -o out.avi

I'm not sure if mencoder directly supports .flv, but ffmpeg can convert from FLV to other video formats and vice versa.

I'm trying to make a video tutorial for youtube about my dsl/qemu persistent thing, using gtk-recordmydesktop in both Ubuntu 804/810 and it save it as a ".ogv", and I have a converter which makes it a ".ogv.flv", and I made it into a ".avi" with Kino-
Question is-which format isbest for youtube? mpeg?
And how do I convert it?
