Uncompressed Flash files can take up a lot of disk space. If you can't afford to erase them, reducing their size is a good alternative. Sparkle SWF Optimizer can reduce the size of SWF files, without affecting their quality. Thanks to its advanced compression methods, the software can optimize the files up to 70%.
You can try the software, free of charge, for 15 days, after which you have to buy a license. It provides support for all popular Windows versions and it does not ask for too many resources. Moreover, the software is compatible with Flash 3, Flash 4 and Flash 5, as well as Flash MX.
Sparkle SWF Optimizer makes it easy to optimize one or more SWF files. All you have to do is load your files on the user interface and click a button, located on a toolbar, to start optimizing. The process is fast, so you don't have to wait for more than a few seconds.
The software allows you to test your files, before starting the optimization process. Loaded files are displayed in a list, along with their paths and original sizes. When the testing is complete, the software will display their optimized sizes, optimization ratios.
You can access a small settings panel, where you can tick a few options, if you wish to create backups or add protection to your files before optimizing. You can also decide what should happen when you double click a listed file. You can either play the files, using the program's built-in flash player, test the files or optimize them.
Sparkle SWF Optimizer's functionality is straightforward. You can optimize several Flash files in less than a minute. The software is capable of creating backups automatically and it can add protection to your files as well.
For some reason, the software will disable certain keys and combinations, while running. Sparkle SWF Optimizer provides you with an excellent solution for saving more disk space and reducing a server's bandwidth cost.
