Apply JING Screencasting to Mac Applications

The .SWF Flash media container extension is one of the most popular available on the Internet. SWF stands for Small Web File. .SWF was originally created as a file extension for Flash-based vector graphics and simple sequential animations and it used to stand for ShockWave Flash. Later, the .SWF extension became more complex and now it is a dominant file format which contains all types of Flash media (including audio and video). The .SWF file can be used for showing Flash animation based on vector and raster graphics, for different forms of interaction with the end user - Flash menus, Flash buttons, Flash banners, and more. Also, it can contain Flash applets which provide control for other Flash elements. For example, it can contain a Flash player applet which will provide advanced timeline and volume controls for a Flash-based .FLV movie clip.

Jing is a screencasting computer program launched in 2007 as Jing Project by the TechSmith Corporation. The software takes a picture or video of the user's computer screen and uploads it to the Web, FTP, computer or clipboard. Not mentioning the simple function of capturing images, the most outstanding feature of JING is that it can easily record videos that are playing on your computer desktop and save them in .swf format. Since this could be one of the simplest methods to make an SWF video, JING is very adorable for most users, except the Mac users.

As is known to all, Apple did not, does not and still will not cooperate with Adobe, so there's no Adobe Flash Player and Adobe flash plugin on Mac, without which, Mac cannot run the SWF files at all. It is a great pity not making full use of JING. As many Mac users are asking how they can use the JING SWF videos on Mac – JING to iMovie, JING SWF to MOV on Mac, or JING SWF to QuickTime on Mac, etc. here, I'll provide you the easiest way to handle that: to use a third-party JING SWF Converter to get this task done.
