NAME

FLV::FromSWF - Convert a SWF file into an FLV file

LICENSE

See FLV::Info

SYNOPSIS

   use FLV::FromSwf;
   my $converter = FLV::FromSWF->new();
   $converter->parse_swf($swf_filename);
   $converter->save($flv_filename);

See also swf2flv.

DESCRIPTION

Transcodes SWF files into FLV files. See the swf2flv command-line program for a nice interface and a detailed list of caveats and limitations.

METHODS

$pkg->new()

Instantiate a converter and prepare an empty FLV.

$self->parse_swf($swf_filename)

Open and traverse the specified SWF file, creating FLV data as we find video and audio nodes.

$self->save($flv_filename)

Write out an FLV file. Note: this should be called only after parse_swf(). Throws an exception upon error.

CAVEATS

Content in the SWF other than audio or video data is currently ignored silently. I should add warning messages when significant non-audio/video content appears. For example, I've seen some screen video which mixes video, bitmaps and shapes to optimize the SWF file size. http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=22095
