Convert SWF files to QuickTime movies using Classic
Authored by: donsherio on May 25, '08 05:39:01PM

*oops... don't know how this comment system works :P*

The reason WHY people want to move away from SWF files is because with the recent drop of SWF support in QT, there are issues in other applications being able to play them. Eg: Keynote uses QuickTime to play media files. When Apple updated QT and dropped the ability to play flash files, anyone who used flash in a presentation (and thats a LOT of people (including me)) LOST the ability to run their presentations with the animation or flash vids. This is why we're converting SWFs from their nice, crisp, tiny files into massive video files; because Apple made us need to.

Hello, donsherio-

Yeah, I certainly see your concern. Dropping .swf capability from QT must have been a kick in the gut to you people with professional presentations already made. You expect improvements in a product like QT, not unimprovements. (I hate "meetings" and I'd never get myself into a position to have to give a presentation, so I'm not hit by that.) But why do you suppose Apple did that? (Were it Microsoft we were talking about, I wouldn't even ask. Same factor(s) applying, do you think?)
