We've just finished adding additional formats to which you can now export flash movies created with Toufee. The top priority were the MOV and FLV formats as we got a number of requests for the same. Some users also did wish to export their flash videos to WMV. Without dissapointing any of them, we've added support to all these formats and in addition, we added MP4 support as well! Very quickly, here is how to convert your flash movies to MOV, FLV, WMV etc
- Submit your flash movie for YouTube conversion (Publish -> Export to YouTube option), yes, you heard us right, its YouTube conversion. As a first step, your flash movie needs to be converted to the AVI format. The AVI file is then converted to one of the target formats (MOV, FLV, WMV) which you'll see in the steps that follow
- You'll receive an email that your flash movie is ready to download. The email will look similar to this. Watch the last few lines closely though as you will now see a link that allows you to download the movie in MOV format.
- When you click on the MOV link in the email, a new page will open with the message that your request for MOV conversion has been acccepted. You will receive an email with the link to download your MOV file when it is ready. If MOV conversion is all that you need, then that is it. However, there is one more step you need to do if you are converting to FLV, MOV or MP4 formats
- To convert to FLV, WMV and MP4 formats, you simply take the MOV link (shown in previous step) from the email and append the following parameter to the MOV link "&filetype=flv" (without quotes) So for example, if your MOV link is http://toufee.com/commoncgi/addmovrequest.pl?userID=56&proj=promobanner&domain=toufee.com then your FLV movie link would be just that with the "&filetype=flv" appended at the end of the URL. http://toufee.com/commoncgi/addmovrequest.pl?userID=56&proj=promobanner&domain=toufee.com&filetype=flv Once you paste the above URL in a browser window, you'll get a similar confirmation page (as in step 3), this time however your movie will be queued for FLV conversion. The same applies to WMV and MP4, i.e. you simply need to change the value in the filetype parameter to wmv or mp4.
