If the enviroment that you are installing swftools into meets all the necessary
prerequsites ( and since Slicehost is a VPS provider with root access, they
should either already be there in the distribtuion you choose,  or if missing
you could install tem ) , then there should be very little difference to running
any of the tools locally.

If you are looking to trigger conversions 'on-the-fly', then you obviosuly have
a bit of scripting to do in whatever is your favourite choice, of
poison, i.e. Perl,
Python, PHP,
