Flash video is a format used for delivering streaming media over the Web. This file format supports high bandwidth transmission and high resolutions, which is why Flash videos are commonly embedded in Web pages. Converting a Flash video to an audio format will enable you to play it on a portable audio player. It's possible to convert a Flash file to many different formats, such as WMA, MP3, AAC and WAV – all are widely supported by various brands of media players. To convert Flash video to an audio format, you will need a video converter program.
