Windows 7: can't convert video files

can't convert video files

hi all

Recently I've changed my OS from XP to Windows 7 64 bit home premiume.
with the last OS I used to convert my Flash files (swf) with the software - Amor Swf to Avi or with Adobe flash cs3 by exporting to Avi/mpeg or other codec files.
After Ive upgreated to windows 7 this simple converting opperation is failing.
I thought the peoblem were with lack of codecs so i've downloaded K-lite Pack - but it didn't help.
I've tried another convert software and still no luck.
my guess is there is some problem with compression...
any help will be appreciate

Good question! You should convert all your Flash stuff to normalized mp4 as soon as possible due to all the multimedia industry giants are turned away from Flash and call it OBSOLETE technology. Nevertheless my student Masha Novedad has written free open source application based on ffmpeg that does all the job in exactly one mouse click. You can download and play with it or see into source code.
