Video2SWF 2.001

Convert your videos to Flash


  • Output html, flv or swf
  • Effect and overlay, players


  • Slow
  • Not Universal Binary
  • Doesn't support Mpeg audio


Knowing how to convert video files to Flash is almost necessary nowadays, as Adobe's video format is quickly becoming the dominant one on the net. Working as any other converter, Video2SWF has the advantage of outputting not only to swf but also to flv and html. It supports most of the video and audio formats out there, though we were disappointed to find out that audio mpeg was not handled.

Settings is probably where Video2SWF packs the most features. Not only can you select in and out points for your videos, but you can also add overlay, and a few filters. The program also has a choice of half a dozen different video controls to add to your video. If you work with multiple video files, you'll be glad to know that you can batch convert them.

Performance is where Video2SWF underachieves, with pretty slow conversion speeds. We were also surprised that the application is not yet Universal Binary and still only available to PPC users.

Video2SWF is a flash converter with lots of extra settings but a tad slow in the conversion process.

Video2SWF supports the following formats

.avi, .dv, .mov/.qt, .mpeg (video only), .mp4, .wmv (Mac requires Flip4Mac plugin), .bmp, .gif, .jpg, .pic, .png, .psd, .tga, .tiff, .aiff, .mp3, .wav
