Small Web Format (SWF) is an Adobe Flash file format used for multimedia, vector graphics and ActionScript. Since SWF files are not editable using the default flash player, we need to decompile the SWF file to FLA/FLEX format. Among the many decompiler softwares available, Sothink SWF Decompiler is one of the best. It is packed with great features and delivers excellent results. The interface of this software is straightforward and minimal. Within few minutes of usage, the user can get familiar with all the utilities of the tool. It is a very useful tool for amateur designers to learn professional techniques.
Sothink SWF Decompiler can perform multiple tasks, analyze and decompile all the action scripts from flash media files and videos and decode them into code able FLA, XFL, FLEX and HTML 5 format file.

There are not many cons in the software except the computer can slow down a little bit. The software is easy to navigate but has a bit complex environment, but with a little practice, things start to look easy, and you become comfortable with the environment. Also, it takes few extra minutes to convert your file, depending on its size.
