Step by Step Guide

Step 1. Download Flash game from Internet

Threre are many ways to download flash game from Internet. If you have no idea how to do, you can try the software mentioned above. Web Video Downloader for Firefox is a Firefox extension. It can capture and download flash games from any web page.

Step 2. Launch SWF to Video Converter and open the Flash game

Click open icon and select the Flash game you want to play and record. The program will show some information of the Flash file to you such as Total length, Frame rate, Movie size. Please note that the Total length of a Flash game is usually a few frames, that is not equal to the duration of video which is going to be created.

Step 3. Set crop area and watermark

Support setting crop area and watermark is the very unique function of SWF to Video Converter. If you want to let the program just convert the Flash restricted in a certain area, or if you want to add an image (BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG) to the Flash as a watermark (like a personal logo), you can specify the settings in this step. Otherwise, you can just skip this step.

Step 4. Specify conversion and output settings

Choose a target video format. You can choose AVI if you just want to watch the video on PC or laptop, not on some portable devices, so as to get better quality video. Then specify a file name and an output folder for created video. And specify the audio setting and video settings properly. You can check the help file to find more detailed guidance. Please note that you'd better uncheck the “Auto end capture at the last frame” option, because what you are going to record is a Flash game, not a Flash animation or movie. You should stop capturing and start conversion manually.

Step 5. Start capturing and conversion

Click "Play and Capture", and start to playing the Flash game within the "Capture" window. Click "Stop Capture" anytime you want to stop recording. Click "Finish" to end capturing and start conversion. The conversion would just take a few seconds.

» 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.
