FLV files are considered to be streaming video files. If you put FLV file in website, you don't have to download the entire file before playing. FLV content may also be embedded within SWF files.

Unlike SWF format, FLV do not have maximum of 16000 frames limitation and ideally for large video file size. Notable users of the FLV format files are YouTube, Yahoo video, Google Video, Reuters.com, My Space, Facebook video etc.

What is SWF?

SWF (Shockwave Flash)- The file format SWF is a vector graphics file format, not streaming media. SWF file can be played directly in web browser, such as Internet Explorer. However, FLV file can not be playback directly, because it requires a separate SWF file which reads the video content from FLV. The SWF file that plays FLV file is called online flash player.

Unable to open swf files in my mobile N72


By default, N72 does not have an app that will open the .swf (Shock Wave Flash). I believe that you need to download it and install it in your N72. Please check the link below:

MACRO MEDIA FLASH PLAYER WHICH SUPPORT SWF FILES IN WINDOW VISTA AS IT SWF FILES ARE NOT BEING SUPPORTING IN VISTA AND SO ALSO ANY SWF FILES CONVERTOR...PLZ REVERT ME BACK IN MAIL ID TO SOLVE THIS...


I came accross this fix.
It worked for Firefox 3.0.3 ,I.E. 8 Beta 2, Opera 9.52, and Google Chrome Dev Release: 0.3.154.0.


Here's the scenario: you download the latest and greatest version of the Adobe Flash Player. After it finishes installing, you go to a site featuring Flash content and are greeted with a message notifying you that you need to install Flash Player, but didn't you just do that? To properly update your Flash Player, you need to run the installation as Administrator. Follow these steps to properly install Adobe Flash Player:

For Vista (32 bit):

1. Open Computer.

2. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\.

3. Scroll down and open the Macromed directory.

4. Open the Flash directory.

5. Right-click FlashUtil9x where x is some letter.

6. Select Run as Administrator.

7. When the UAC prompt appears, select Continue.

8. Follow the Flash Player installation wizard.


For Vista (64 bit):

1. Open Computer.

2. Navigate to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\.

3. Scroll down and open the Macromed directory.

4. Open the Flash directory.

5. Right-click FlashUtil9x where x is some letter.

6. Select Run as Administrator.

7. When the UAC prompt appears, select Continue.

8. Follow the Flash Player installation wizard.


You should be able to download and install Flashplayer 10 (now by Adobe): http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
and if it still won't work correctly, apply this fix: http://thetechangel.com/blogberry/2008/10/adobe-flash-player-10-fix-for-vista-xp/
Finally, a forum where other Vista users discuss the problems they've had.. http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/webforums/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=184&enterthread=y&forumid=44&threadid=1243464

A converter: http://www.sothinkmedia.com/swf-to-video/?gclid=CO72_4X7wJkCFRo-awodAVFAuw
or freeware: http://majorgeeks.com/google_search.html?cx=partner-pub-6960825562757852%3Aecswas-url5&cof=FORID%3A11&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=convert+.swf#0

That ought to sort it out, one way or another. If you need any further assistance, please post back and I'll be happy to guide you through the process.
If this solves your problem, please take a moment to rate this post.
Thanks, and good luck!

.swf files don't run


Hello,

.swf files are Flash files and are played by the Adobe Flash Player. If you currently have the Adobe Flash Player installed, try going to Start --> Control Panel and clicking on Add/Remove Programs. When the screen loads click on Adobe Flash Player and click Uninstall. Finally restart your computer.

When the computer reboots, use the below link to install Adobe Flash Player.

I can't open videos requiring flash player eventhough i've already installed it


If you have Adobe flash player on your computer and you get the message on youtube to download the latest version of Adobe or turn on your Java in place of the video you want to watch, then look at your toolbar at the top of the screen and if there is a pink bar that says the website wants to run an Add On for Adobe flashplayer then click on it and select Allow Add On or Blocked content and the video should run fine.
