Working with Flash Player Settings

The stand-alone Flash Player is an application file that installs with Flash. The Player opens when you double-click the icon of a file that has the .swf extension. (From within Flash Player, you can use the File > Open command to open and play SWF files.) To prepare a Flash movie for playing in the stand-alone Player, choose either the Export or Publish command in the Flash editor. The options are the same for both commands.

To publish a Flash Player (.swf) file:

1.
In the Flash editor, open the Flash file that you want to publish.

2.
From the File menu, choose Publish Settings.

The Publish Settings dialog box appears.

3.
Click the Formats tab.

4.
In the Type section, select Flash (.swf).

To enter a file name other than the default, deselect Use Default Names as the Filename option and type a name for your Flash Player. (Be sure to include the .swf extension.)

5.
Select the Flash tab (Figure 16.13).

Figure 16.13. The Flash tab of the Publish Settings dialog box offers options for publishing your Flash movie as a Flash Player (.swf) file.
