    Convert SWF to AVI?

    I want to be able to convert SWF files to AVI.....or MP4.

    FFMPEG will not do it so don't even mention it.

    WinFF won't work either.



    How do I do it?

    Well, I hate to go against direction but FFmpeg will convert some swf files. This sample file for example:

    Code:
    wget http://samples.mplayerhq.hu/SWF/zeldaADPCM5bit.swf
    This converts quite neatly with FFmpeg to mp4:

    Code:
    andrew@skamandros~/Desktop$ ffmpeg -i zeldaADPCM5bit.swf \
    >        -acodec libfaac -ab 64k -ac 1 \
    >        -vcodec libx264 -vpre slow -crf 18 \
    >        -threads 0 zelda.mp4

    I gather that there are several different types of swf files, some of which FFmpeg will not convert, but certainly there are others that it converts easily...

    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Doesn't work. Some SWF files are vector graphics (sounds like I know what I'm talking about?) and won't convert.

    I tried SWFEXTRACT and that'll let you get some stuff out of SWF but not all.

    Thanks for trying.

    For the occasional file conversion, you might try something like this online file conversion site.

    I can't win.

    That's a good site.

    As you'd expect it doesn't convert- anything. At least it didn't for me.
