Well, it did extract the files I needed. Unfortunately it also destroyed the alpha channel on most of the files so I couldn't use them anyway.

Flaex is incredibly simple but incredibly broken. It's sad but true. It's a one-trick pony that's lost it's trick. So, it's just a pony. Out to pasture.

I discovered two ways to get it to still kinda work:
1) Use it under 10.6 Snow Leopard. I have Snow Leopard Server loaded as a virtual machine in Fusion and Flaex still runs like a champ.

2) Under 10.7 Lion and later, though Flaex crashes soon after launch, it still dumps the contents of the .swf file to the file system before crashing. You can still access those files, albeit crudely.

On your system, route yourself to /var/folders/**/******************************/*/jp.afunishi.Flaex

where * is some random character. Basically, you gotta search around for the right folder within /var/folders/ until you find the one containing "jp.afunishi.Flaex". To get to /var/folders/, in the Finder go to Go->Go to Folder…, then type "/var/folders" into the dialog box.

Within jp.afunishi.Flaex are all of the files from the .swf which were extracted before it crashed...theoretically.

Crashes when trying to open any SWF I've tried. I'm guessing it is incompatible with Lion.

This app does not extract video from an .swf file. It only extracts images, atleast from a .swf video I was trying to convert.

Found it for free and tried it on one file. Did exactly what I needed... convert a static swf file to a png file.
