can't convert

Hi all -
I have been trying to convert a short video clip that ends in .swf. My usual vixy is eternally busy, naevius only converts to .avi (I need .mov) and zamzar can't convert .swf files. Does anyone have any ideas about how I can get this tiny clip into my iMovie? Thanks!

I found this amazing website it is a WEB 2.0 that supports all media files conversion it is called http://youconvertit.com, they can do the following:
1- Convert document, images, audio, video and Archived files.
2- Convert any Youtube and other Online Video to popular formats or download the video
3- Send file(s) up to 300 MB to friends or post it on any forum for 7 days
4- Convert any type of units (Acceleration, Area, Torque and others)

what makes them amazing is you can add up to 5 different file formats, i used them to convert a document and couple of audio files.

Try them and give me your feedback http://www.youconvertit.com

Hi Ina - I tried using this but I'm not sure if it worked. There was no message re: success or failure. Also where will I find the converted video? Will they email it to me? How long does it usually take?

Where do you have your downloads directed to, Mirjana? Your downloaded and converted files by rights should appear in the same place that your keepvid downloads and conversions appear. If you're having trouble getting it to work, try using a different internet browser (e.g., if you're using Internet Explorer or Safari, try using Firefox instead). I find I always need to have at least two different browsers installed on my harddrive because some sites just aren't compatible with everything.

PS: "*.swf" files are flash animation files (for more about this see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SWF
