VisiFly is an easy-to-use program to convert your video files into streaming Adobe(Macromedia) Flash files step by step. VisiFly is great for displaying your videos on websites, CDs, for creating flash tutorials and presentations. It converts almost any video format (avi, wmv, mpeg, mp4, mov and many others) to Flash (swf, flv).

VisiFly is a Wizard so everything is simple and stuctured. You won't have to read a long complicated "help" before you can start! You choose an input video file and select output format (swf or flv). Then you click 'Next' and choose first and last frames of the video in the preview window. VisiFly will also generate html code with control buttons (such as play, pause and stop) which you can embed into your webpage!

You can set advanced video and audio settings - it's also very easy! Choose a quality, framerate, keyframe and dimension in video settings. Disable or enable sound, select a compression level and audio quality in audio settings. Click 'Next' and get a perfect result!

VisiFly is probably the best program to turn your favourite videos into smaller and very popular Flash files. This powerful software will convert your home video to a professional high-quality Flash movie. Let's make the conversion process easy and pleasant together!

Tried it and the audio was out of sinc with video. I'll confess that I didn't read the instructions so the problems I experienced may be fixable.

I love my little clock I downloaded last week.

This program is seriously a throwawayoftheday. The program is installed, but doesn't convert at all. It makes a screenshot of the first frame, then saves this screenshot as .swf, worthless.

Doesn't work.

I feel silly, but I think this is something to be considered.

I just installed VisiFly and when you open it up there are NO help files.

How does one find out how to use the program? This to me is a definite turnoff IF I had purchased it. Even not purchasing it. How does one figure out how to use it IF they don't want to do trial and error.

I did not have any problems installing in main computer and laptop, but got the same screen on both, so I take it this is the way the program opens up.

Thanks in advance.

#71 Yes Internet Explorer can play some of them correctly. But there is no playlist and very little control. So it isn't very useful to me. I need a real player, not a pretend player. lol

#67 No it isn't a trial, read the readme.txt to learn on to activate it.

(I tried to leave the following msg in the "Forums" as requested but got a "Cannot select DB." error. So I'm leaving the message here...)

I was excited to download VisiFly, however when I installed it my virus program (Kapersky 6.0) complained! During the install, a file called MediaLog.dll is installed. When the installer tried to move it to the proper directory, Kapersky Virus program stopped the move and announced that the VisiFly install file "is-UE49N.tmp" was infected with "Trojan program: Backdoor.Win32.Hupigon.edk". I check on the web shows that Trojan was discovered recently: Jan 7/07.

I don't know if the MediaLog.dll file was infected or some totally other file on my computer. I didn't read of anyone else having this problem. CNet says Kapersky is one of the best out there to trap viruses so maybe other peoples' computers just didn't see it.

I'd love to install this program but can't right now.

The program seemed to work pretty fast, but the output file had terrible audio and a slight frame rate drop. Not recommended for any fast action videos. (And what was up with the phrase "Please wait while the conversion will not ended" when it's converting? Poor English translation from some other language?)

My ZoneAlarm Anti-virus trapped an ominous looking file on install called:

Backdoor.win32.Hupigon.edk

AV Quarantined the file and Visfly doesn't run.

Why would this program need a Backdoor????


There is no Backdoor, we checked the software with antiviruses, then I just went through the software manually to check for the virus presence using its description.

I did have problems installing this software on my second computer which I use F-Secure as a firewall and anti virus scanner. It wouldn't let me install the software because it found a malicious file. Which when changed by F-Secure no longer allowed the program to work. That said, it runs fine and seems to pose no problems on my other machine, which used other anti viral software.

The program worked and pretty quickly too, however, the files I converted to FLASH format do not sync the video to the audio. I feel like I'm watching a foreign film converted to English where the actors are talking, but the words are trailing their actions.

BILLW50 WROTE: "So I would like a way to go from this output format to wma format."

WMA is audio. SOUND only. Like an MP3. You want to take a video, which is something such as an AVI, then convert it to FLASH .FLV, then convert it to .WMA which will just be the soundtrack?? Seems fishy.

Even if you meant just taking an FLV flash file and converting it to .WMA you'd only get sound.

Maybe you mean .WMV Windows Media Video instead of wma? In that case: http://www.zamzar.com/
There is your answer.


BILLW50 WROTE: "#31 Thanks freddy, for the VLC player tip. That is the best free FLV player I have seen so far. That other free FLV Player 1.3.3 is just awful. No play list and zoom doesn’t always work for me either."

Yes, VLC is a good video player for beginners. And it can play lots of various file formats. Originally designed for LAN streaming, but now popular with onliners who have problems getting codecs installed correctly.

YES.
http://www.mediacollege.com/flash/video/windows-media-player/
FLV's can also be played using MediaPlayer Classic:
The FLV splitter/decoder can be downloaded as a standalone DirectShow filter (source filter + splitter + decoder) to be combined with Media Player Classic:
CODEC FILTER:
http://esby.free.fr/CelticDruid/mirror/Media%20Player%20Classic/external%20filters/unicode/FLVSplitter.7z

From the Start menu choose "Run" and enter: regsvr32 flvsplitter.ax


Hope that helps

#11 you may need to install win9x unicode support layer called unicows.dll Lack of that could cause an abnormal termination under WinME as I did see the setup program install the unicode version of the VC7.1 runtimes.
I don't have a URL handy for the download from MS website... do some searching and i'm sure you'll find it... you will probably find it mentioned before on a previous giveaways comments. seek and ye shall find:-)

As reported by at least one other user, the advanced settings promised with this software are nowhere to be found. And though the generated flash video and sound quality are reasonably okay they are incredibly badly synchronized - I've never seen sound and vision so out of sync before! If this software works for some users then they are lucky - for me it has proved to be useless, and now it's time to uninstall...

Not worth the time to install it. I tried VisiFly, and registered it. The advertising does not disappear. The output movie is smaller in size and plays slower than the original. Definitely not an encouragement to buy software from that company.

Doesn't do as it says on the tin!

I've read the readme, installed and activated as requested and still no

"Then you click ‘Next’ and choose first and last frames of the video in the preview window."

and still no

"You can set advanced video and audio settings - it’s also very easy! Choose a quality, framerate, keyframe and dimension in video settings. Disable or enable sound, select a compression level and audio quality in audio settings."

Am I stupid or just missing something?

Well..lots of good and bad things with this download. I found that if I ran the exploited video thru shiftTime it reacted to the out sync r issue with the audio vs frame syncs. If you extract it first, analyze with the ogot dissembler, you can see where the time stamps get pushed out over time, but simply hit the resync button and it works out. Each frame can be sliced thru pixalate and regain much of the quality while shrinking the file size down

It works well for a giveaway on my XP system. I don't like the fact that it can't produce HTML or a player control bar. It does what it will do and some people will be absolutely thrilled to have it...It makes short work if you want to transfer a small clip over email to someone and give it to them in a generally accepted format that can be seen in most browsers or freely available players on the home system. I give it a 5/10...but not because it doesn't function, but because it has no end user GUI interface...at minimum it should have an option to loop it or stop the clip before it it's produced.

a total thumbs up although i did have an 'issue'!

my first conversion worked great. i converted an 18,514 k avi file down to 869. i don't notice deterioration in sound that has been mentioned here.

my second attempt was a 13,540 k avi file. the first time it didn't work at all. the second time it didn't finish. i haven't yet tried a third time. i don't know why this happened. i'll have to play with it. the color seemed to deteriorate with this one. since this is a smaller file, it certainly can't be size.

i also like that they put it on an html page. i don't know if i'll use that or not, but i like the option.

i'm very very happy to have this little program. i don't have time to play any more right now, but i'm excited about potential.

THANK YOU!!

Too bad about this one. Seems like a lot of people are having trouble with it. I can't get it to convert properly either. The video runs in slow-motion and is very far out of synch with the audio. I am sure that the VisiFly developers will value all of this input. Hopefully they will get all of the bugs worked out soon.

Doesn't work properly - audio and video out of sync, swf file generated is larger than the original wmv file, audio quality is pretty bad. At least it is simple to use. This is the first software (of about 7 that I've downloaded and installed) that works poorly. BTW, would like to see something like neodownloader again.

From the VisiFly website..

"VisiFly is probably the best program to turn your favourite videos into smaller and very popular Flash files. "

That's funny. Not only do they make an unsubstantiated claim. But they are all wishy washy about it with "probably". I guess if they don't have faith that it is the best, I don't either.

Nice looking program, but the description above seems at the very least inaccurate -- if not *misleading* -- regarding the ability to:

"choose first and last frames of the video in the preview window."

and:

"You can set advanced video and audio settings... Choose a quality, framerate, keyframe and dimension in video settings. Disable or enable sound, select a compression level and audio quality in audio settings."

This all may be possible in some other version of the product, but you can definitely *NOT* choose first and last frames OR choose any video or audio quality settings in the version of the product I just downloaded from the link above. In this version all you can do is choose your file, choose output as either .SWF or .FLV and choose where it will be save. That's it! Either give us a real version or change the description to reflect the capability of what we're downloading, please.
