Wanted - .mov (quicktime) to swf converter ...
« on: November 07, 2005, 03:01:32 AM »
I'd like anyone's recommendations on a mov to swf converter - freeware would be nice  if possible.
Have sighted a few shareware ones, but I'm a bit put off by the prices I'm seeing (can't really afford / justify it) Maybe there's a good cheapie out there!

QuickTime Pro will export files in AVI format (I think the Pro license costs $29.95) You may be able to find a cheaper or free converter to AVI.

Then CamStudio can convert AVI to SWF ... see http://www.donationc...ndex.php?topic=427.0

A good conversion program is WinAVI - it converts most video formats and is quite customisable. Unfortunatley SWF isn't one of the formats supported for export (it is for import) but there is a huge range (inc. AVI) also at $29.95.

By the way - if you go for WinAVI let me know - there are some additional plugins required for some formats, and whilst the developer was helpful tracking them down they weren't obvious to find. (use the forum PM service)

Anything based on FFMPEG should do it. Or you can just run FFMPEG I expect

ffmpeg -i "c:\movie.mov" -b 1000k c:\movie.swf

that should do it.

(I've got a custom application that installs ffmpeg and converts media files into Flash 8 @350Kb/s @1MB/s and H.264 @1MB/s. You can untick the ones you don't want)
