Recool SWF to HTML5 Converter helps you convert Flash files (SWF) to HTML5-supported video. HTML5 video has the advantage that, unlike SWF files, it does not need a plugin to show in web browsers. In addition, this format can be played across platforms and devices, which means that it is readily playable on such portable devices as smartphones.
This program’s interface has a modern appearance and supports using different color combinations. If you have used media converters before, it is unlikely that you find this software difficult to use. In addition, when you open the application, there will be a brief tutorial on its use. The first step is to open a SWF file, for which you can use the corresponding button, but you can also drag the needed files to this application´s window. The second step is to provide the conversion settings by choosing a target profile and a series of other parameters, such as video dimension, zoom mode, video quality and audio quality. In this regard, the program supports converting not only to HTML5-supported formats but also to other popular video, audio and image formats. Some simple editing actions can also be performed. These include cropping and watermarking video. The final step is obviously to start converting. In addition to converting video, this software also includes a tool to combine MP4 video.
In general, Recool SWF to HTML5 Converter is a valuable utility, even more so at the light of the perspectives of HTML5 becoming the standard specification for displaying video on the web. In this respect, some smartphone manufacturers have announced their devices will not provide support for Flash files anymore, and even YouTube is already a beta video service based on HTML5. Unfortunately, I got an error while converting to MP4 (which may be due to some problem on my computer) but it successfully converted several SWF files to OGG.
