Flash2Video is a software with a title that says it all - it can convert SWF files to several media formats, including AVI, MP4, MPEG, MP3 and WAV.
The interface of the program is plain and simple. You can import SWFs by using the file browser (the "drag and drop" method is not supported).
So, all you have to do is specify the output format and destination, and initiate the conversion process.
In addition, you can configure settings when it comes to the compressor, video size, bit rate and frame rate, as well as audio sample frequency rate and bit rate.
Furthermore, you can preview the source video (pause, navigate back and forth), select the speed mode (normal or overspeed), as well as the action after conversions are finished (do nothing, turn off the computer).
During the encoding process you can view a progress bar, the current and total number of frames, as well as the source frame-per-second value. After the task is completed, Flash2Video automatically opens the output directory.
The program uses a moderate-to-high amount of system resources and takes a while to convert a file. No errors have popped up during our tests and Flash2Video didn't freeze or crash either.
However, the demo version has some severe restrictions, as you can see in the Product Description below. Also, the image quality of the output videos is not very good and the tool automatically overwrite files with the same name (this option cannot be configured).
Nevertheless, since it is a stable software, we recommend you test Flash2Video for yourself and see if it's a good fit for you.
