    I think you mean to convert the video to another format rather than just change the extension.

    I did a quick Google search on "convert video to flv during upload php" and FFMPEG kept cropping up - so if I were you, I'd do a bit of research into FFMPEG to see what you can dig up, and run a few tests.

    I found this tutorial which might also help though: http://wordpressapi.com/2011/02/01/c...-file-flv-php/

    Just as a warning, FFMPEG (which is the best answer) is not easy to use. It's for experienced PHP users with some experience managing servers-- you must be able to install it on your server then manage it through PHP. It's not a part of PHP, but another program that can interact with PHP.
