Macromedia Flash Player 7 and the SWF File Format

As mentioned earlier, the SWF file is used for deploying Flash content. It can be read in each of the following ways:

  • In Internet browsers that are equipped with the Flash Player. The SWF document must be embedded into an HTM, HTML, or HTML-compatible format (such as ASP or PHP) file in order for the browser to read it.

  • Inside Macromedia Director or Authorware, as long as the Flash Xtra is included with the final Director or Authorware project.

  • With the Flash ActiveX control in Microsoft Office and other ActiveX hosts.

  • Inside the QuickTime Player. Note that depending on which version of QuickTime is being used, some Flash functionality may be lost.

  • As a standalone movie called a projector.
