    .SWF to .MOV converter

    Anyone know of a piece of software that will allow you to convert flash files into a movie file? (Without using a screen capture utility)

    Thanks in advance!

    Doesn't work list:

    -Toast Titanum

    No idea...

    Sorry, don't know how to help. Was going to suggest VideoLAN Client (VLC), because it reads just about anything (WMV,AVI,DIVX,etc), and can even output these files to formats like MPEG2 and MPEG4, but I just tried it and it won't read SWF files, or at least it won't read the one that I have which QT can't open either... It has a special application loader... hmm maybe you should give it a try, you can get vlc for mac, (or just about any other platform under the sun) here

    One of Apple's bundled QuickTime codecs handles some Flash files. It would help if you linked to a specific file that you can't display.

    Flash will let you export as Quicktime Video, or as a image sequence. Just look under export.

    Handbrake can convert movie files to a different format.

    I know for a fact that it converts .flv movies. But I don't know about .swf movies.

    As it is Quicktime can open Flash files, under certain conditions:
    1) You need to enable it in the QT pref-panel
    2) It has to be an uncompressed swf; some SWFs use compression for smaller transfers, you can decompress them using a freeware command-line interface tool called Flasm.
    3) It needs to be Flash version 5 or below.

    All three of these have to be fulfilled.

    If anyone is still looking for an SWF to video converter (just like I was for the past 3 hours or so...), I've stumbled upon this one: http://www.pavtube.com/hd-video-converter-mac/

    It costs $35, which is considerably less than the $100+ that Doremisoft is asking for its converter. I'd still prefer a freebie though, but there's little choice...

    P.S. On the webpage, it only lists .SWF as an Output format, but I found that it reads and converts .SWF with no problem. I've already got some converting done.
