Thank GAOTD team for offering this piece of swf to video conversion program for free.
I know a program (called Clone2Go Video Converter) that can also be used to convert SWF to all sort of video formats such as AVI, MP4, 3GP, etc. However, after using sothink swf to video converter, i'd like to make a simple comparison between them in terms of the SWF to video conversion feature:
1. Both can convert Flash SWF to AVI, MPEG, iPod/PSP (MP4), 3GP.
2. Sothink can convert Flash SWF to animated GIF and image series (BMP/PNG/GIF/JPEG), while Clone2Go cannot.
3. Sothink can add watermark, logo, copyright image onto the created video, while Clone2Go cannot.
4. Sothink can Add watermark, logo, copyright image onto the created video, while Clone2Go cannot.
5. Clone2Go can convert between all popular video formats such as avi, mp4, wmv, flv, 3gp, rm, rmvb, etc.
6. Sothink support Flash movies including Action Scripts, movie clips, and sound.
7. Clone2Go can help to customize profile for the output video file.
8. Clone2Go has support for a variety of mobile players such ipod, iphone, zune, psp, blackberry, mobile phone, etc.
9. clone2go also servers as a YouTube downloader which can help to download videos from YouTube/Google and other video streaming websites.

* Straightforward and easy to use.
* Can convert to AVI, MPEG, MP4 (iPod/PSP), 3GP/3G2 and (animated) GIF.
* Can convert each SWF frame to BMP, JPG, PNG and GIF image.
* You can add an image watermark before you convert.
* You can crop your video before you convert.
* You can record in "interactive" mode or "frame by frame".
* You can add audio from an external sound to your video.
* You have control over the FPS, bitrate, etc. for your output videos.
* You can choose to convert the whole SWF or just parts.
* Not too bad on computer resources.
* Program crashes for me when trying to convert a Flash 8 SWF video.
* You can't control any of the output settings (FPS, bitrate, etc.) for MPEG except the MPEG type.

Sothink SWF to Video Converter not only works, it's maybe a one of a kind solution -- from the comments I think some people misunderstand Flash Shockwave... SWF [Flash Shockwave] files contain programming (scripting), graphics (vector graphics &/or raster images), sometimes audio, & *sometimes* video. Flash video [FLV] is a more or less regular video file in a special format. That video's player is an SWF file, & they can be combined or stored separately -- the SWF file may or may not contain any FLV video. Sothink SWF to Video Converter does not specialize in extracting or converting any FLV video, but rather in converting motion graphics to video, an image sequence, or an animated GIF.
If you've tried one of the SWF decompilers offered earlier on GOTD, you probably found that SWF files can contain sprites -- individual vector graphics, like the individual frames or cell layers in animation -- along with scripting to move those sprites in the window or overall frame (called a stage). Sothink's SWF to Video Converter takes a series of screen captures of the SWF window with the animation running, & then saves those captures to a new file or files. This lets you repurpose a Shockwave animation (stand-alone, in a game etc) that normally runs in a web browser, & turn it into a video clip that can play for example on a handheld video player or your cell phone. Or you might make a smaller animated GIF to use for a web page link to the full Shockwave file. Since sprites/graphics/scripting form the animation in a Shockwave file, there really isn't an easier (or other) way AFAIK.
Sothink SWF to Video Converter is a small program (18 files, 1 folder, ~11 MB) with minimal impact on Windows. Installation did misbehave by replacing the 3 Xvid video codec files in Windows' System32 folder with older versions -- you might want to update Xvid & the included Lame mp3 encoder. It includes 2 other files for the System32 folder & version 9 of the Flash OCX file. It doesn't recognize (offer to use) other codecs or encoders already installed, VFW or DS, so if you want something like a mjpeg avi file you'll probably wind up saving an image sequence, then loading that in VirtualDub or whatever software for encoding.

Cropping works great, but conversion to video leaves a bit to be desired. Every encode I ran made a super-fast playing clip (about a 10 second SWF compressed into a 6 second AVI). I couldn't get the audio to rip. Didn't bother with the watermark feature after all the other problems.
Might be useful for people that want to capture interactive flash games where timing is moot.

#4: "why would you wanna use this when there are billions of freeware alternatives that do this and download from youtube and other flash video sites."
It's not really for FLV video, but for old style Shockwave animations, done using vector graphics for smaller files & faster downloads.

#15: "Program crashes for me when trying to convert a Flash 8 SWF video."
#18: "I encountered a similar Flash 8 conversion issue as mentioned by Ashraf"
I wouldn't think version 8 should be an issue since the app comes with version 9. That's not to doubt it crashed, but I wouldn't think having a version 8 file was the cause. I did find that converting animation to an image sequence was more reliable (converting to avi sometimes needed the settings tweaked) if that helps.

#24: "I’m seeking video editing software, primarily to reduce the size of some of my movie backups enabling them to fit on a standard DVD. Some action movies I’d like to edit for language, etc, for the youngsters."
Visit videohelp.com for guides, software, forums etc... To reduce file size you'll need to re-encode -- the format you use depends on what you want to use to play it. To do the audio you'll need to go to wav format for editing, then encode that -- again your choice of format depends on how you want to play it back. The software you use will depend on the format it's in now, what you want it to be, & how much effort & money (if any) you want to spend.
