Addicted to Happy Tree Friends, Simon’s Cat, or other instant Internet hit SWF (Flash) cartoons? Watching them online is easy – you just need a Shockwave Player installed in your browser. But what if you want to enjoy your favorite series wherever and whenever you are – even if you don’t have an internet connection?

No problem! Just download your favorite Flash movies and convert SWF to MP4! With the right software, it’s easy. The SWF-to-MP4 converter from Movavi can convert multiple .swf files at once, and offers two-way conversion: SWF to MP4 and MP4 to SWF, if you need it.

Small Web Format (formerly ShockWave Flash) or SWF is used to store not just regular video, but also graphics and even interactive animation. To play back files in SWF format, you need to install a browser plugin.

MPEG-4 Part 14 or MP4 is a media container designed to store video and audio streams. It is one of the most popular containers on the internet, especially for mobile devices.

Download Movavi Video Converter for Windows or Mac and learn how to change a file from Flash to MP4 or vise versa. Here's a guide.
