It’s an easy thing to convert AVI to Flash SWF with an easy-to-use software program. However, is it still piece of cake to convert AVI to SWF with player style following your own inclination? This task can be only achieved with a professional video encoder for Adobe Flash. And Flash Video MX Pro is one of those preeminent.

Let’s waste no time to get down to the AVI to Flash conversion with the utility above to feel the results.

Please download and install the program from

On starting the program, you will get the window below:

Step1. Input the video

Click the “Folder” and input the AVI video in. Actually, this converter supports to convert videos in various formats. Have the video trimmed with dragging the slide bars of “Start Time” and “Finishing Time” for the exact video clip. Click “Next” to continue.

Step2. Parameter settings

Set the video and audio parameters for the target Flash to fit your needs, such as size, frame rate, bit rate, audio channel, audio sample rate, etc. Click “Next” to continue.

Step3. Export settings

Immediately below the playing pane, there are “Export settings”, “Player settings”, and “Misc”. Let’s go through them one by one.

a. Export settings

Check the boxes “Generate FLV File, Generate SWF File and Embed video to SWF File”. Do make sure the “Embed video to SWF File” box is checked.

b. Player settings

Select a player style among the top to 19 control bar styles from the “Control Bar” box. In the middle box under “Control bar settings”, you can feast yourself with the control bar settings, like Show Player, Player align, Player over movie, Hide delay, Player auto hide, pane color, Mute, Volume, etc until they are in your style!

C. Misc

Add text and logo to the video to feature out your video. Check the “User Caption” box, type in the text in the “Caption” box, place it by “Origin” and “Offset” settings. Logo settings are ditto. Click “Next” to continue.

Step4. Movie beginning and end settings

This step actually can trick the video out, however if not necessary, skip and go for the conversion directly. Set the template, subject, director, and description respectively and ditto to the movie end settings. Click “Next” to continue.?

Step5. Conversion

Click “Start” and ready to receive the Flash SWF file in your folder!

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
