MP3 to SWF

Flash 4 and 5 Players both are capable of playing MP3 audio, which makes Flash a convenient tool for creating Web jukeboxes and other music apps. Unfortunately, the Players can load only SWF files, not MP3s, directly.

Creating a new .FLA, importing the MP3, and then exporting by hand is not practical for more than one or two files. Swift-MP3 is free utility that wraps MP3 audio inside an empty SWF automatically. The resulting SWF file contains pure streaming audio data.

Swift-MP3 files can be used as a batch processor or to generate single files. Visit http://www.swift-tools.com/swift-mp3.html for more information and to download the utility.
