The art of working with media files received an innovative twist when the shockwave files were introduced to the world. For many years, this file type became the standard for viewing the media file on the web. Following the advent of flash and its action script, flash-based games were developed and remained in the mainstream of the gaming industry up till today. The downside of using flash media is that Windows does not provide native support for this type of files. Moreover, the third-party applications that can open SWF files are overly complicated. This program provides an easy to use interface for viewing SWF files. After installation, the application configures itself as the default app for the opening of SWF files. However, this setting can be disabled from the main window of the application.

The user can open SWF files using the open command on the file menu or just use the drag and drop mouse gesture to open the file. The application is equipped with the standard media playback buttons such as play, pause, forward, next, etc., for the control of the media content. One excellent feature of this program is the “cache viewer” It can be used to read SWF content that was downloaded in the cache of Internet Explorer and the Firefox browser.
