using flv video in vegas - anyone?

I haven't tried for a long time, and now I remember why - vegas 6 doesn't seem to allow importing flv media. does anyone have a workaround for this?

Thanks

Sure. Use some other program to convert it to a format Vegas CAN read.

Has anyone developed a rock-solid workflow for converting from FLV while preserving quality as best as possible?

I always get errors when trying to reencode to a non-FLV format with SUPER , even when the program is able to play the FLV video by hitting the "Play (Active Files | Streams)" button.

I use xilisoft 3gp video convertor 3, mainly for converting vids to my zune. Flv to mp4 or wmv for use in vegas.

There are seemingly hundreds of such conversion apps available and most if not all of those that I have come across have demos or trial periods. Some apps seem to be re-skinned versions of others.

There are also some freeware apps available, of which this seems to be the most popular:
