Q What about automatic conversion tools? Are they reliable?

Some tools claim they have the automatic feature. This is possible for only small SWF files where there are no interactions. However, manual intervention needs to be there at some point of time to make the converted HTML5 version work properly.

Automatic conversion can only get the graphics from Flash to HTML5 and ActionScript codes are not converted to compatible JavaScript.
