It's bugged me a bit that when I convert an .FLV to another file format such as an .Mp3, the bass seems to increase. Any way to change this? :P

Just here for the activity

Audacity, equalization effect, play around with it.

Yeah, but I hate having to fine tune everything I get. I just want the .Mp3 to sound like the .FLV.

If the sound in the FLV is already mp3 (YouTube, for example), then it is probably possible to get that directly by demuxing it with a program. I haven't looked for any FLV demuxer yet, so I wouldn't know whether it is available or not.

BTW, if it is from YouTube, unless you are downloading the HD versions (where available), get the MP4 version if you want it for the audio (most videos have it available). There are ways of getting the file, both without additional programs or with programs. The one I use, which works in multiple web browsers, is the method described here: http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2008/04/download-youtube-videos-as-mp4-files.html

The audio is encoded in AAC format in stereo. For bit rates I've seen around 112 - 131 kbps. I don't know if they've just adjusted it sometimes, or if it uses variable bit bate encoding. This is better than the audio on the "high quality" versions, which use mono MP3 at 96 kbps.

If these are not from YouTube and the site offers no other format and if the FLV files don't already have mp3 audio, I'm not sure what you could do.

Most music players as of this date (which is sad) cannot play Mp4 or AAC files. Personally, I'd like full compatibility.

But if you are doing a conversion to mp3 anyway, that will be a better source, as far as on YouTube.

So, explain the conversion process.
