porting a flash (exe) to DVD player

I have some cartoons that are actually exe files, whose properties says,

'Macromedia Flash Player 6.0'

What is this called? (I noticed someone in a forum was talking 'container' - no idea if that is related to my case)

And the question is, how can this exe file be converted so I can watch on a home dvd?

Thank you as always.

It sounds like you have some "self playing" Flash Video cartoons (.flv or .swf videos), where the video has be encapsulated into a Windows executable with the Macromedia Flash Player built-in to play the video when the program is executed. You need to find software which will convert those files to MPEG2 files which can be written to a DVD. If you can learn how to extract the Flash Videos which are embedded in the .EXE files, and if they are .FLV files, then there are free converters available to convert the .flv to .avi and then to MPEG2. Macromedia, or some other company, will probably sell you software which will do everything you need, but doing it for free will require spending some time searching and learning (and no promise of success).

Microsoft offers a free program that is supposed to allow you to capture any or all of a screen and convert it to wmv. You'd capture it and then convert if needed to a format that your dvd player would use.


"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
