As Flash Video (FLV) has become the default video format on the web and almost every video sharing site, you may have downloaded some FLV videos from YouTube or other video sharing sites. Want to edit these FLV videos on your Mac? You may find some video editing tools fail to support editing FVL in Mac's latest operating system- Mavericks.
To help you edit FLV in OS X Mavericks, a professional and easy to use video editor is required. Here I recommend Video Editor for Mac. With an intuitive user interface, you can split FLV videos into multiple clips, merge several files into one, trim the unwanted part, and convert FLV videos to other formats with ease. Now check out the steps below to know how to edit FLV in OS X Mavericks.
