High Demands for SWF Converter

  • Is there a converter out there that you know of that will convert .swf files to video. Everything I use results in audio only.

  • Is there a good converter that will take a SWF file and convert it to a FLV file? I feel so exhausted.
  • I'm going thru the endless list of I don't know how many converters that said they can convert SWF to MP4. However, all they do is convert FLV to MP4 so I figured I'd ask people who really know the answer.
