Developing History

Introduced in 1996 by Macromedia (later acquired by Adobe) and primarily used for web animations and interactive content. However, its support was discontinued in December 2020.

Microsoft introduced it in 1999 for video playback on Windows systems and it is still widely used today with ongoing support.

Final words…

In conclusion, FLV stands for Flash Video and an FLV file contains only video, while SWF contains a variety of content, including video, an animation, games, even little applications. So you probably fail to open the SWF file since it holds not only video/audio but also other information. In such case, trying an open-source Flash Player emulator like Ruffle is a good option. Then you can use a screen recorder to capture the whole Flash animation or movie on your website.

Anyway, that’s all about how to convert SWF video file to WMV for free. We hope this post has really helped you. Thanks for reading
