Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of April we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 16 people to reach our goal of 3,000 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in May!

I think that if it doesn't automatically do that, then you can choose "manual recording" or something. I don't know, so far alpha channel has worked for me.

Works beautifully, but it takes alot of time and uses alot of cpu to convert them and I can't seem to get a proper audio output either on the video files either, but the video output looks amazing! Definitely in pair with swf quality. Hopefully Mike will get some of these issues sorted out and also add some more video output formats (f4v, mkv, 3gp)
Until then, I'm sticking with my original swf converter.

Great job, Mike

Hey bro, welcome to video encoding. This thing does an amazing job converting at the pace it does.

NG cares about its users and it will pay off in the long run.

Couldn't agree more. This is most likely the best free swf converter on the web.

Wow, that is amazing!
Can't wait to convert loads of SWFs!


I make animations and play games.

If it's possible, could you send me the SWF you were trying to convert? Thanks!

I will be very happy when I can lower video quality. :D Right now I have to let it load for 10 minutes just to see anything.

This is really cool, but I would of course strongly encourage you to make it open source software. :)

The video upload feature remains invite-only at the moment so PM me for access and the MP4 field will appear as a secondary option under your project details.

If you're going to keep it invite-only for now, maybe you could put a link on the Submit Movie page to request MP4 access? just an idea.

an swf to video converter that is free? How can an animator say no to that?

Response to Swivel - SWF to Video - Released! 2013-01-28 03:27:04


Nice! I alway used to use Flash to convert .flv's into .swf's; now I can do the opposite, and more!

Sounds like a good candidate for a distributed computing project.

I'm sure a lot of people have fast CPUs 'because racecar' and wouldn't mind helping out converting NG content.
I know I wouldn't.

:The next step on our end is to launch our video conversion server, which will process these videos into smaller 720p and mobile formats. This will make NG video a better experience for both PC and mobile users, expect it soon! Then we just have to convert every movie in the history of NG. Or at least the good ones.

Mike this is some seriously knockout software, amazing job!
Make sure you stick up links to it all over the site so it's easy to discover for new visitors, this will be a big deal outside of Newgrounds too.

Awesome, gonna be trying it out with my older SWF submissions! Been looking for a good SWF to Video converter for ages.

Response to Swivel - SWF to Video - Released! 2013-01-28 07:46:19


I'm not a flash artist, never done a single animation/game/else in my whole life. But I can feel why you're all so excited about this and, without apparently reason, I can sense that a big awesome project has comed to life. I always tought NG had an important role if "internet" and "web browsing" are like we know nowadays and what they'll become in the future years thanks to NEWGROUNDS. It's in the name itself that we are aware of what the purpose of this place is: to explore new grounds and expand this amazing universe called world wide web. If in the future years someone's gonna build a museum about "Internet", I require a big tank reproduction (or a real one, why not ;D ) with "newgrounds" embossed in capital letters and even a room filled with NG stuff!
*end of blind love comunicate*

Big Huge Thanks to Mike for Swivel and his support for "our" community. He should be King of the portal for at least a year!
