Adobe® Flash® Player is a lightweight browser plug-in and rich Internet application runtime that delivers consistent and engaging user experiences, stunning audio/video playback, and exciting gameplay.
Installed on more than 1.3 billion systems, Flash Player is the standard for delivering high-impact, rich Web content.
SWF stands for Small Web Format which is an Adobe Flash File Format used for multimedia, vector graphics like interactive animations and games. It is derived from Shockwave Flash. SWF files can only be played in a flash compatible web browser. A SWF file has a .swf extension. Flash games are very popular as they can be directly played in the web browser. But android doesn't have a direct support to play swf files. But in this tutorial I am going to teach you how you can do this.
If you want to view Flash-based websites, play Flash games or watch Flash videos on your iPad, you'll come across a bit of a problem: the iPad doesn't support Flash. However, that doesn't mean you can't get Flash on your iPad at all. There are various apps available to download from the iOS App Store for iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad mini 2 that will help. Some of these apps are also available for iPhone, so you can play Flash games or videos on your iPhone, too.
Popular browser apps that will enable you to play Flash videos and games on your iPad include Photon Browser, Puffin, Skyfire Browser and iSwifter Browser.
DCR is the file extension used by animated movies created by Adobe Director, formerly known as Macromedia Director. The extension is one type of flash file that can be played in the Adobe Shockwave player. Files written in the DCR extension can be opened and played in the shockwave player, with or without an Internet connection, as long as both the DCR file and the media player are both installed on the computer's local hard drive. It's very easy to install and use DCR files, even with basic computer knowledge.
Over 450 million Internet-enabled desktops have Adobe Shockwave Player installed. These users have access to some of the best content the Web has to offer - including dazzling 3D games and entertainment, interactive product demonstrations, and online learning applications. Shockwave Player displays Web content that has been created using Adobe Director.
The Unity Web Player enables you to view blazing 3D content created with Unity directly in your browser, and autoupdates as necessary.
Unity allows you to build rich 3D games with animated characters, sizzling graphics, immersive physics. Then you can deliver the games to the web or as standalone players.
Note, the playback runtime version used may not match the plugin version and may alter depending on the content played.
Chrome decided to stop Unity support from version 42 onwards. Use Firefox, Safari, or a different browser to continue playing Bike Rivals and other Unity games. Alternatively, you can enable NPAPI plugins at chrome://flags/#enable-npapi (note that this requires a browser relaunch). (If you have already installed the Unity Web Player before, please ignore the install button)
After the release of Chrome version 45, you’ll need to use an alternate web browser to load content that requires a NPAPI plugin.
Update Dec. 4 2012: The unsupported 64-bit Windows web player is not currently in working state in Unity 4.0.
While we have been developing Unity 3.4, we have ported the Unity runtime to the x86_64 architecture on Windows. You may have noticed that the Unity 3.4 editor allows “Windows 64-bit” as a new build option in the Standalone build. We have also ported the Unity Web Player to Windows 64-bit. This allows you to play Unity content in Microsoft Internet Explorer 64-bit or in 64-bit builds of Mozilla Firefox. Any Unity web content built with Unity 3.x should play in the 64-bit plugin. Content built with Unity 2.x will not work, as the 2.x runtime has not been ported to x86_64!
Without further ado, here it is!
Even though this is an unsupported product, please use the bug reporter which comes with Unity to report any issues you might have with the plugin!
