flash .exe to swf files

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

is there any method to convert flash .exe files to swf files? got a client that has like 20k sound boards he wants converted from flash exe to swf so he can embed them (well so i can embed them), but before i do most of the legwork to build a script to do this (to insert these into his downloads section), i was wondering if such a thing is even remotely possible (in linux that is or windows).

the Flash .EXE's will just have the SWF embedded as a resource in the Windows PE (.EXE's file format). So you should be able to extract the SWF easily enough. However I'm unaware of any way to automate that.

If they're just audio samples then you might get away with writing a script to launch the files in WINE then record the master channel audio and saving that as an MP3 to use with HTML5. that would probably be the easiest method for automating 20k samples. However you'd need some logic to remove leading silence / audio slicing, so even that would take a little work to fine tune.

thanks for the info. from further looking at the archive i was sent, only about 40% of them are flash exe, the rest are something else, i'm not sure what tho :) . I found a program that can batch convert flash exe to swf, have that running on my windows machine atm, the others i've got a bash script putting them in zip archives and naming them after the exe, since the download section doesn't accept a .exe extension as acceptable for linking (eh didn't feel like altering the code :) ).

 

he said he will be going thru all the ones that aren't flash, and over time rebuilding them as such so he can embed them in a website so people can have a preview before they download.

 

this project tho is gonna send me to an early grave, its not so much he is feature creeping, tweaking creeping, its little bitty tweaks every day...good thing i've got an annoyance tax in the contract...he gets charged for all of it...and he seems content with that.
