i have another suggestion. load the pdf with adobe acrobat (9 preferably) and use the optimization dialog to optimize your pdf (save as / pdf, optimized). try compatibility with acrobat 5 or 4. then feed it to pdf2swf.

Thank you Mark and Filip for the suggestions.
I would not be able to post the pdf as it is a copyrighted content. Also, I am running the pdf2swf tool manually in windows to convert each pdf. The tool just crashes in at the particular page and I have to end task to close the command window. So, no swf really gets generated.

well, if you use it as a part of a programm you can simply check if the target swf exists after calling the pdf2swf tool.
i'm using this as a fallback/workaround for the worst case.

Maybe you should post your PDF and have someone give it a try and then they may have the same issue.

I recently started to use pdf2swf for a custom viewer and it worked brilliantly with most pdfs I have converted.
Currently I have couple of pdfs that I am unable to convert because the tool simply crashes while processing a certain page in each of these pdfs without any error message. I tried on Windows XP and Vista and the Command window simply crashes on both OS after the tool gets struck on those pages. I also tried with -O1 but it did not help.
This occurs on a English text pdf and also with another one that has Japanese characters.
Has anyone had the same issue and found a solution? Any help is greatly appreciated.
