How to Convert SWF to HD Video with Excellent Quality

I have a big problem. I made a animation in Flash CS5 and exported to a .swf file, but my client is asking me to convert the file to HD video. I tried some conversion programs to do the job, but get a very slow video, not smooth at all. Any suggestions?
