Hey jlriley45,

In some instances, programs will install themselves without removing or updating information from previous versions that were already installed on a computer. To avoid such a problem, it is generally recommended that users uninstall these previous versions before installing the new one.

In order to uninstall Flash Player 6, there are a couple of things that you can do. First, Adobe has developed an uninstaller program that you can download from their main support website:

http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_14157&sliceId=1

You'll want to make sure that you quit all other programs before running the uninstaller, as well as make sure that you do not have an anti-virus/anti-spyware program running in the background. Run the program, and follow the step-by-step instructions that appear on your screen.

Once this is done, you may also wish to check the Installed Programs list for your computer. This can typically be accessed in most versions of Windows by clicking on the "Start" bar on your desktop, choosing "Settings," then "Control Panel." After you're in the control panel, double-click on the option that says "Add/Remove Programs" to open the list of currently installed programs. If Flash Player still appears in this menu, highlight it and click on the "Remove" option to the right of the program name.

After you've uninstalled the program you should be able to download and install Flash Player 9 with minimal fuss. However, in the event that you still cannot get the program to function correctly, you may wish to visit Adobe's product support site for more information:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

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.

In order for you to view SWF (ShockWave Files), you need to install Adobe ShockWave Flash Player. You can get it here. You could also use SWF Opener that you can get here. If you're trying play a video on YouTube but you're getting the error "You need to install the flash player", check this troubleshooting guide.

.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.
