How to convert MOV to SWF with Free Video to Flash Converter How to convert MOV to SWF with Free Video to Flash Converter

If you want to efficiently share your video files and created animations over the Internet and embed them into your website, then the SWF format is the way to go. This type of file, normally created using Adobe Flash, is a vector-based format, which means that you can rescale the video window without any loss in quality. Also, when it comes to video streaming, MOV is another video format that can successfully deliver video content over the Internet, but, unlike SWF, is a pixel-based format that doesn't allow you to freely rescale the size of your video.

If you happen to have your favorite video files saved in MOV format and you want to embed them into your HTML website and share them with other users, then, you can simply change them into SWF files.

I will demonstrate how to do that using Free Video to Flash Converter 5.0 , because it provides a simple and efficient way to create SWF videos from MOV files for free. It can also save you some time by giving you the possibility to add multiple MOV files that will be converted to SWF, one at a time.

You might want to be careful during the installation process, as the program will also install additional software unless you select to perform a custom installation and uncheck the box.
