How do I convert a Camtasia screencast (SWF format) back to a regular video format (e.g. DivX)? Preferably using free tools only?

How do I convert a Camtasia screencast (SWF format) back to a regular video format (e.g. DivX)? Preferably using free tools only?

The replays of talks at a recent virtual online conference were made available in SWF-format. I presume that most if not all of the presentations were produced using Camtasia Studio. I would very much prefer to watch these videos on my TV rather than at my computer and would thus like to convert them to something that can be read and played back by my DVD player, e.g. DivX or some other MPEG variation.

Your best bet is exactly what you don't want to do: screencasting. You don't have to be in the room to capture, you know. Start up the process before you leave for work, and another before you go to bed, and you can record 2 presentations per day. You're probably breaking the agreement you made with the host, though. Virtual conferences I've been aware of all forbid recording or converting their presentations.
