    Default Some Flash Video Converter Tools Compare

    More and more videos were laid on the web, but not all people can view the video on the webpages because they donít have the proper video player. In order to make people view the whole videos on the webpages, most video styles were converted to flash styles, such as swf and flv. Flash video converter is the tool to convert video to flash. Macromedia company has a tool named Flash Video Encoder.Besides the Flash Video encoder from the Macromedia company, there are different other Flash Video encoders such as Video to Flash Encoder, SwishVideo(http://www.swishzone.com), and On2 Flix(http://flix.on2.com/)..

    Advices for User

    If you are a beginner of Flash files and you want to convert your video files to SWF files to play them on the Internet, Video to Flash Encoder will be a good choice. It has a very easy interface and allows you to preview the main settings you have done. Macromedia Flash Video Encoder cannot create SWF files. SwishVideo and On2 Flix are both complicated for beginners.

    If you only want to convert a video file to a SWF file, SwishVideo, Video to Flash Encoder and On2 Flix are all fine. However, if you want good quality and small file size, Video to Flash Encoder will be the best choice.

    If you want to convert your video files to FLV files and you prefer On2 VP6 conversion, Macromedia Flash Video Encoder, Video to Flash Encoder, and On2 Flix all work well for you.

    If you are a professional Flash designer and you need to add Cue Point to your Flash files, you should choose Macromedia Flash 8 Video Encoder. It was released together with Flash 8 Professional by the Macromedia company. If you have already bought Flash 8 Professional, you should have got Macromedia Flash 8 Video Encoder along with it.
