Flash2Video is a basic program that allows users to convert SWF files to a variety of other video formats. Although the program performs one very specific task, it is a good choice for users who frequently need to convert SWF files to other formats.
Flash2Video's interface is plain and intuitive, and the program is quite easy to use from the start. Users simply select the file or files they want to convert, choose a destination, and select the desired output format. Users can choose from VCD, SVCD, DVD, and MPEG4 formats, all of which are available for both PAL and NTSC. The program offers two conversion speeds, normal and "overspeed," which the program warns could cause a loss of quality. We found that the normal speed was plenty fast. We liked that the program's interface includes a small video player, allowing users to preview files before conversion and ensure that they have the right one. The program doesn't have much in the way of features, and didn't have any Help file that we could locate, so users looking for a comprehensive file converter will probably want to skip this one. Users who need a quick and easy way to convert SWF files, however, should find that Flash2Video meets their needs quite well.
Flash2Video is free to try, but the trial version converts only 50% of each file. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
