How to Convert SWF to MOV and Vice Versa
Short humorous SWF (or Flash) cartoons have taken over the web. You can watch them online if you have a special plug-in, or save them on your computer and watch them offline any time.

Step 1: Install the Software
First, run the installation file. Follow the onscreen instructions to install the software.
Step 2: Adjust the Recording Settings
Once installation is complete, launch the program. If you’re using the Windows version, click Capture screen in the launcher window; in the Mac version, the recording app will open automatically. Adjust the capture frame to fit the recording area by dragging its edges, or just select a size preset from the Select Capture Area pop-up menu. Make sure there’s a green checkmark on the System Audio icon: this ensures that the audio track will also be recorded.
Step 3: Capture the Video
Click the REC button and be ready to start playing your chosen video; the program will start recording almost immediately. If you need to take a break, click Pause (or press F9 in Windows, ⌥ ⌘ 1 on the Mac). To finish recording, click Stop (or press F10 in Windows, ⌥ ⌘ 2 on the Mac).
Step 4: Save the Captured Video
As soon as you click Stop, a preview window appears. Here, you can trim the beginning and the end of the recorded video to remove any unwanted material: just drag the triangle markers on the seek bar to the desired new start and end points. To save the file as MOV, open the Save as menu, click Video and audio, and select MOV from the list. If you want to optimize the video for viewing on a mobile device, open the Devices tab and select the appropriate preset. Finally, click the Save button.
