Nice post, but you did not mention how to use converted screensaver in Windows


Nice point made, it requires another program Inno Setup and with the help of that it will create an installer. It will be like any other normal screensaver which has installer, it installs the screensaver automatically. If you want to remove it, just use add or remove programs and uninstall.

A great app. Specially its screensaver part. Thanks for the share.

Yeah, exe files are helpful for those who have no Flash player installed on their computers.

Thanks for the review. I’m looking for converter right now, so I’ll try swf maestro. For now my favorite is Bytescout swf to screensaver scout. I’ve downloaded its trial and I liked both its intuitive interface and options. For example, it has dual monitor support for screensavers and screensaver preview. Also I like that one program creates both screensavers and exe files. So, I will download and try swf maestro too and choose one of them.
