other to FLV file conversion in PHP

Hi It’s really painful to convert any extension of video file to flv which is really lightweight for video playing on web, If you are not using HTML 5 yet may be you are in that painful situation where I was 🙂 BTW using this below written php code any one can convert any video file to flv.
Requirements : ffmpeg software
You can download this software from http://www.videohelp.com/tools/ffmpeg

Code :

$curdir = define ('FULL_PATH', dirname(__FILE__).'/');
$ffmpeg_format = $curdir."ffmpeg.exe -y -i %s %s";
$ffmpeg_format = "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. ".$curdir."ffmpeg -y -i %s %s > /dev/null 2>&1";
$ret_value = 0;

// prepare ffmpeg command
$ffmpeg_command = sprintf($ffmpeg_format, $video_file_name, $flv_name);
if (system($ffmpeg_command, $ret_value) === FALSE || $ret_value != 0) {
// ffmpeg was failed return false notice
return false;

Where this php page directory should ffmpeg.exe directory
