Free Eltima SWF & FLV Toolbox!

Update: This promotion has ended! Sorry for those who missed it.

Remember Eltima SWF & FLV Toolbox [1]? It was given out by Giveaway of the Day back in December when I reviewed it [1]. Well in case you lost it or you missed the giveaway you can attain the same version as the giveaway (v3.5) from Brothersoft.com! I won’t talk much about the software in this thread because you can refer back to my full review [1] to learn more. However I will say this is a very useful freebie for people who work with flash (.SWF, .FLV, and .EXE) a lot… especially considering this software can convert .SWF -> .AVI – something most video converters cannot do (you can always use FormatFactory [2] after you get the video in .AVI to convert it to other formats if you wish).

Here is a quick description of what this software can do:

SWF & FLV Toolbox converts individual or batches of Flash SWF/FLV files into Projector EXE, AVI, frame-by-frame JPG/GIF/BMP image series, or single animated GIF.

SWF & FLV Toolbox features an extremely useful Advanced Projector specialty, that lets creating EXE files out of any SWF / FLV, thus making it possible to watch SWF / FLV movies using handy controls and without installing Flash Player on a PC.

Eltima SWF & FLV Toolbox works on Windows 2000/ XP/2003/Vista/2008. Officially 64-bit does not seem to be supported but you may still be able to get it to work.

To get Eltima SWF & FLV Toolback (v3.5.25.503) for free follow this simple guide:

Type in your name and e-mail address (you must type in both). I don’t know if Eltima spams or not so feel free to make use of Mailinator [6], 10MinuteMail [6], or Trashmail [7]. Then click “Get your free activation code”. You will get the following success message if it worked:

Check your e-mail for an e-mail from “Eltima Software <support@eltima.com>” with the subject of “SWF Toolbox – Free copy”. In the e-mail you should have see your registration code:

Ironically notice that Eltima is using the same file/registration link for this giveaway as they did for Giveaway of the Day back in December [1].

Copy and paste the registration e-mail in the back in the last field in the installer window.

Update: Please do not worry that this freebie is from Brothersoft.com. I know Brothersoft.com has a bad reputation for hosting files with malware on them. However I promise you this SWF & FLV Toolbox download is 100% clean. VirusTotal found nothing [10] and my Avira stayed quiet during install. Furthermore, this is the same exact file that was given out by GOTD. Nothing to fear friends!
