The Swivel logo.

Swivel is an Adobe Flash to High Definition Video converter available for [toc 2|download] from Newgrounds, written in the Haxe programming language.


Release[edit | edit source]

It was announced by Tom Fulp himself on January 27, 2013 in a newspost in the forums[1] and is largely the brainchild of Mike Welsh, a programmer and Newgrounds staff member.

In December 2017, Mike released the source code of Swivel on Github, opening it up to code contributions under the GNU GPLv3 license.


Reception[edit | edit source]

Swivel has received a generally positive response from flash animators and viewers alike, as it allows non-flash capable devices, such as iPhones, to view content submitted to Newgrounds with greater ease.
