Is there a way to convert a swf-file to some video format on a linux server? We have swf animations that we customize using flasvars. They play without problem in a webbrowser. For a new workflow we need these animations as a video (mpg avi or something).
How can that be done?
There should be several options for you if you google around enough.
One option that I have used in the past is http://www.media-convert.com - a service that will convert almost any media to almost any other media for free. The conversion happens on their servers, and they give you a link to download the converted file.
If you have the FLA files, you can export the SWFs as videos directly from Flash, using File / Export / Export Movie
Thanks for this very useful remark about google. I did extensive googling but found no solution that worked. Please read the text: We need a solution that works ON A LINUX SERVER.
