Hello every body; i hope you all are fine, i need help on my project where i got stuck;

i have a page where user browse and then upload the swf file, i want to extract all the existing images from that swf file when user click on upload button.....
Any Suggestions or Solutions

Much obliged

Advance Thanks


this should easily work with SWF-Tools (http://www.swftools.org/). It's a community open-source project with very good reputition already. It's really worth a try!

Greetings Simon

buddy i shall be very thankful to you if you guide me how to use this...

i have explore the link you provided and also check the this link


is this for linux ? if not then how i would extract all images at windows please answer :/


swftools is free software for all major OSs. Using Windows or Mac you can get a precompiled package there. Under Linux, most distributions have swftools already in there repositories. I installed that long ago on all three platforms, and as far as I can remember it wasn't complicated at all.

Having installed that you can use that software via command-line (eg. cmd.exe under Win). Then have a look how the programmes are used. It will be something like

swfextract -o myimages swffile.swf

. Just fiddle around a bit (it's fun).

You can then use what ever arguments you figured out in PHP via the command



This all may sound a bit spooky at first, but it's not really rocket-sience. And if you need help, feel free to ask again (or even write a PM - as I'm currently quite stressed).

Hope I could help you now, dude.
