Play SWFs On Your Computer, Online Or Offline, For Free.
SWF.max Player is a free SWF (Shockwave or Adobe Flash) file player. It can run movies, games and other content all created in its native format, and features other options for exporting SWF files to other formats, tweaking viewing resolution, and even modifying them.
Viewing, Playing, And More: It Does It All
SWF.max Player provides a friendly interface that allows the user to browse their SWFs as many media players of other types provide. You can even create SWF playlists, including both movies and games. SWF.max Player works well with even very complex SWF files. The playback controls are comparable to later versions of Adobe Flash, and work just as well. The only problem is that some auxiliary features do not work as well: exporting to screensavers is not compatible with some operating systems, for example, and automation is command-line only, requiring a good amount of effort and offering few options.
A Great Choice Going Forward
Overall, as the venerable SWF format changes and sees different uses, players like SWF.max have more and more utility. For anyone who values Flash functionality, or wants a way to preserve and play old Flash projects, this software is a good choice.
