Sto save the file somewhere, then copy it into your folder.
If avidemux does not open your file correctly, there are alternatives: Mediacoder is a bit more difficult to use, but might work, and can save h.264 flv files. SUPER isn't very good, hard to find, but is another program that might be worthwhile, if you can find the download on the website. Finally, VLC can be used, but that should be avoided at all costs.
The reason I like avidemux is because you can easily edit each frame, and it has a good interface, unlike mediacoder (which has greater compatibility). I've never been able to get virtualdub to work properly.
