Links of the month (March 2009)

The best Flash things I've found in March:

1. Flash Probe - "free online tool that can parse flash files and display text and images found within. The tool will create HTML versions of your flash websites. Some use it to see what part of their flash website will get indexed by search engines." Easy way to extract text and photos from SWF file.

2. Adobe's SEO Technology Center - ensure that search engines can crawl and index your rich Internet applications (RIAs) and take additional steps now to improve your search ranking positions further.

3. 123-banner - free tool for creating and publishing flash banners. There are lots of nice customizable templates. Banner contains little ad of website, but I think it's still great for free area. Premium area starts from €5.99.

4. Flash Tutorials - a comprehensive list of Flash Tutorials:

and Advanced Flash Tutorials:

5. FlashVortex - easy Flash animation for a website. Buttons, menus, banners, text animation. Nice and easy to use online tool.

Free Flash MP3 Players and Fash Video Players

I've found a great site today and want to share my find with you. is a place to create free flash audio player or flash video player that can be automatically published to one of the online services including Facebook, MySpace, Friendster, Blogger, LiveJournal, and many others. Great choice of skins available, easy customization, built-in search of tracks and videos and one-click adding them to playlist, saving playlists for further use - these and other useful features can be found at


Comparing to desktop applications for creating flash audio and video players, has both advantages and shortcomings. Its advantages are: easy searching for tracks needed and adding them to playlist, easy embedding players, and free hosting for created players.
Among the shortcomings are:

  • inability to upload mp3 files directly from PC. They must at first be uploaded to any free hosting where you can get their URLs for adding them to playlist;
  • inability to stream online radio with these flash audio players.

Nevertheless, I seam to be a very useful tool for everyone who wants to create flash player for free and easily post it to the profile, blog, website, etc.
