I would like to figure out how to convert a .swf file created
with Captivate to .flv. .flv seems to intergrate better with
Dreamweaver. You can simply insert .flv with Dreamweaver, but this
does not seem to be the case with .swf.
I have tried to import the .swf file into Flash 8 and to use
the flash video encoder, but have not had success.
Your best bet is to continue your efforts to import to Flash
8, unless the Captivate project contains some critical objects that
are not supported in Flash (some are, some aren't).
If you arre having trouble getting Flash 8 to read Captivate
files, you might
this link. Captivate was released to be compatible with Flash
2004MX, and the workaround for Flash 8 users is at the link.
BTW, an alternative to FLV is to use the SWF files right from
Captivate, but in order for them to "stream" well, you will have to
keep them compact - an art that most Captivate users haven't
learned - or even heard about - in the days of hte 1200x900 movie .
