SWF Player for Windows


User rating8


Offline flash video player

SWF Player is a flash player that operates without an internet connection, letting you view SWF files with ease. It also reads metatags, which makes it an excellent third-party solution for devices lacking such a player.

Easy flash opener

SWF (an Adobe Flash format) files include interactive graphics and text. Most often, those files comprise movies, online games, and animations you would enjoy as web apps.

Although there's been a decline in flash content online, the application is still useful and enjoyable. However, many new-age devices lack a native flash player. That is where this programme steps in to replace them.


SWF Player is free, lightweight, and portable. Its use is as seamless as possible. Moreover, it operates offline, removing the need for a browser.

Meta tag reader

In addition to playing flash, this tool can read metadata tags in six formats. It will display signature tags, uncompressed SWF files, 8-bit version number, frame rate, total frame count, and file length.

Straightforward UI

Although the interface here isn't the flashiest out there, it is easy to navigate and use. It lacks more advanced features, but that lets it perform the intended task, that is, to play flash games and videos in seconds.

After you download SWF Player, all you need to do is click the File menu and choose an SWF file. The programme will display its tags and let you play it.

You can also use the F11 hotkey to switch to fullscreen and experience your game or movie even more comfortably.

Unfortunately, this programme is only for Windows PCs. If you need a Mac alternative, you could try iSwiff, which performs the same tasks on OS X 10 and higher.

Great but unnecessary

This programme is fantastic in its execution. It is comprehensive, portable, and straightforward. However, more advanced software, such as Windows Media Player, exists that perform the same action and more. This programme falls a bit short.
