Swf to Avi Converter

October 30, 2011 Posted by Skai

While I was trying to upload a shockwave (flash) file SWF to Youtube, I faced problems. After uploading the flash file, Youtube displayed error that it could not convert the file format. I was then in search of a free software online to convert my SWF file to AVI file. I tried many software, while some required subscription in order not to embed copyright text on the output file, others could not recognise SWF files. There was even a software that repeated the flash file without automatically stopping the recording.

Alas, I found a good software “SWF to AVI“.

From the website

swf>>avi is a freeware dedicated to Flashtm .swf files to .avi conversion. swf>>avi is productivity tool. You can batch convert swf files and manage conversion profiles. We had developed swf>>avi for our own use because we did not find exactly the converter we need. Now, we think that it could be useful for many users. So we decided to provide swf>>avi for free to interested users.

We will try to improve swf>>avi in the future as frequently as possible.

Features

  • Batch convert swf files to avi
  • Create custom conversion profiles
  • Set swf input format and avi output format
  • Set output frame rate

Do you have to send a file to your friend via internet but the connection always dies off halfway and you have to start all over again?

Do you need to send a file which is huge in size, such as photo album taken during an outing, to many friends?

Do you need to do file sharing with your co-workers or students often and need a free webspace to store your documents?

Do you need to backup your files and be ready to access and retrieve them at any place where there is internet connection?

Do you want to save bandwidth for your personal webhost’s webspace, by storing the downloadable files somewhere else?

If you have answered “yes” to any of the question/situation above, you would definitely need to try MediaFire.

Free Windows Cleaner

October 30, 2011 Posted by Skai

Having this frustration that your Windows is running very slowly?

Other than being infected by virus or spyware, it could be due to your Windows registries corruption. Everytime you install a new software or program, your Windows registries will be amended or new ones would be created. Over times, the software would create new registries to point to other files; and when the software or the pointed files are removed, some registries would be left in your Windows system. Such registries would slow down your Windows system, or, may even cause greater issues.

What you would need is a Windows registry cleaner, such as CCleaner (http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download).

CCleaner is the number-one tool for cleaning your Windows PC. It protects your privacy online and make your computer faster and more secure. Easy to use and a small, fast download.

CCleaner - Registry Fixing

CCleaner not only can help you to check and fix Windows registry problems, but also come with other utilities, such as clearing of unnecessary files in your Internet Explorer, Firefox, Microsoft Office and other applications. By removing the files, it will free up lots of spaces in your Windows. It also comes with a tool similar to Windows’ existing “Add or remove programs” to list the installed programs for you to remove; however, please note that you should always use each application’s own uninstaller file if provided.

Last of all, a very useful tool of CCleaner is that it can disable or delete programs that are set to run when your computer starts – Startup programs; you can speed up the loading process of your system drastically and also, check for any uncommon startup programs such as spyware.
