Being an acronym for Small Web Format or for Shockwave Flash, SWF is a container format for storing and distributing vector graphics and multimedia.
Created by Adobe, these files are particularly published on webpages due to their small file size and their support for animations and interactive applets.
Users often encode their regular videos to SWF format in order to be able to easily upload and display on their webpages.
Prior to the actual conversion, users will be able to modify the bit rate, sample rate or the aspect ratio of the source video.
Also, one will have the liberty to assign a custom filename to the resulting SWF video.
