Convert SWF Audio


Hello,

Is there a program or script that will extract audio from a SWF file and convert it to either MP3 or OGG?

Hello,

Yes, I too have googled it and it does provide a good number of hits. But, most are Windows programs, with an occasional Mac application. I need something that will work with Linux.

Most of my other file conversion programs are just Perl scripts. So I assume that one could have been or could be written for this. I am not skilled enough in Perl to write one, but I hoped that it might already be existing. Something like swf2mp3.pl or swf2ogg.pl.

Any additional help would be appreciated.

You can use Audacity and capture the output of the sound card and then encode it .mp3.

Start audacity, start it recording the sound card output, play the shock wave presentation, stop the recording, encode it to .mp3 and save it.

If you can hear it playing audacity will record it.

Hello,

I heard from others that Audacity should work, but I can't get more than one audio device to work at a time. In this case, either Audacity makes use of /dev/dsp or Firefox (playing the .swf file) makes use of /dev/dsp. They don't share.

I did find a suite of programs that did the job. They are available at:
http://www.swftools.org/

I used swfextract and it produced a .mp3 file. I think it can export to .wav format as well.

Thank you for all your help.
