Converting Articulate into mp4 or other video format

Oct 20, 2011

Hello all,

My client wants to have separate videos of some of the slides I created.  I go into the data files and try to convert the swf files, but none of my programs seem to recognize the swf files.  Can anyone help with this?  How do I convert my Articulate content to videos for my client?

Hey there, Sean!

The reason you're not able to convert the SWFs is because all published files are necessary for playback to work properly (not just individual SWFs). 

Something you can try is, if your Articulate content does not include interactive elements (such as quizzes or user-initiated navigation), you can record your Articulate content as it plays, using a screencasting tool like Screenr ( to capture a video of your Articulate content. The free version of Screenr is limited to five minutes of recording time, but Screenr Business will allow you to record for up to 15 minutes. You could then download and save the MP4.

Is that helpful?
