This sample shows how to convert FLV flash movie to lossless AVI video in Visual Basic and C# with Bytescout SWF To Video SDK.

The SDK provides set of methods and properties to convert flash movies to video (compressed with the selected video compression codec, one of the available on the computer).

Visual Basic
