play those files in a player that works, and at same time, re-capture them with Camtasia Recorder; if those files have sound, be sure and also record system audio; use the new captures in your music video project

I found this one that did the trick http://www.vip-video-converter.com/.  It's under $20.  It did a superb job of converting Jing files.

SWF is flash file. I'd recommend Acethinker Video Converter which I have used for many years. It's a free web-based application to convert videos, you don't have to install anything. Here are the steps to convert SWF video to another video format.
  1. Launch your web browser and go to the Online Converter, you can google search for it.
  2. Click ‘select files to start’, and then drag and drop your SWF video into the app.
  3. Click the Format drop down list, select any video format you want as output format.
  4. Click the Convert button, the App will ask you where to save the converted file.
  5. Click Start the run the conversion, it will take a few minutes to finish the task. When the conversion done, you will find the converted file in the folder you set in step 4. Done.

Tried this. Not only do you have to install their online launcher app (.pkg file), once you do that and click the "Select files to start" button on their website, SWF files aren't even selectable as files to be converted.

It's possible they've "updated" the app since the original comment; but for me this was a total dead end.

I assume you have to convert SWF videos to something else?

if so, and you can play the SWF videos on your system, play them while capturing with Camtasia Recorder

then just use the new captures in your projects
