Adobe Shockwave only plays swf files inside web browsers. So you have to open the file from the browser, not explorer. The .swf game file probably calls external resources not included part of the file, so you would be forced to play them from the original website with the ads and stuff. The web browser needs to be configured to play the swf file type using Shockwave. This could be set to nothing or something else. Also, web browsers today are so paranoid about Adobe that they often disable it by default with every browser update so check your addons, plugins, extensions settings.
There are free video players that will play .swf files, but I don't think you could interact with the content as in a game, just watch the video component. This is because .swf was commonly used as a video format 10+ years ago. It is only this type of .swf file that could be converted to a different format.

.swf files are Shock Wave Flash files, which are native to Adobe. Download Adobe Flash Player and you should be able to play them.

Do you have some short films shot with Sony HDR-SR10E AVCHD camcorder, and want to share them on your website? It will make your site more attractive with videos. While Apple compete with Adobe, the Flash support on Apple devices like iMac, MacBook Pro do not support exporting to Flash FLV/SWF now. You can not directly export FLV from the Apple QuickTime Player, iMovie or Final Cut Pro/Final Cut Express.
One solution is to upload videos to YouTube and embed YouTube videos on your site. If you do not want to embed YouTube videos, you can convert Sony HDR-SR10E MTS files to FLV with Mac Sony MTS converter, and put the FLV videos on web server with Flash player. Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac is the recommended Mac Sony HDR-SR10E MTS converter for you. It exports Flash videos with automatic deinterlacing function, which makes the FLV videos play without interlacing artifacts. It could also help you merge several Sony .mts video clips and export as one file.

Run Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac as the Mac Sony HDR-SR10 converter, and click the "Add" button to load .mts files for conversion.
Step 2. Choose Flash FLV output format.
Click the "Format" option, and choose Flash Video > FLV-Flash Video Format(*.flv) as output format. You can also choose the profiles like FLV H.264(*.flv) or F4V(/f4v).

Tips:
With The above mentioned output, you shall use Flash player like JW player, Moyea PlayerBox player, or Flow player to play the Flash videos. If you want the video to play automatically, you may choose SWF-SWF Forma(*.flv) as output.
Step 3. Transcode Sony HDR-SR10 MTS to Flash.
Click the "Convert" button under the preview window, and the conversion from Sony MTS to Flash video FLV/SWF will start right away.
Wait for a while, and you can upload the Flash videos to your sever and embed them on your web page.
PS:
1. The "Merge into one file" on the main interface is to join/splice .mts files.
2. If you are using camcorders like Sony HDR-CX350, HDR-XR520, HDR-TG7, or Cyber-shot DSC-TX7, DSC-H5V, you can also use the Mac Sony MTS converter to export FLV files for web sharing. Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac also works with Canon HF S21, Canon HF100, Panasonic HDC-TM700 and other AVCHD camcorders.

how to create your own .swf video and post up on internet.

SWF info:

The Flash File Format (SWF) was designed as a very efficient delivery format that was initially designed to deliver vector graphics and animation over the Internet. It was designed to meet the following goals:

On-screen Display—The format is primarily intended for on-screen display and so it supports anti-aliasing, fast rendering to a bitmap of any color format, animation and interactive buttons.

Extensibility—The format is a tagged format, so the format can be evolved with new features while maintaining backward compatibility with older players.

Network Delivery—The files can be delivered over a network with limited and unpredictable bandwidth. The files are compressed to be small and support incremental rendering through streaming. SWF is a binary format and is not human readable like HTML. Macromedia Flash (SWF) uses techniques such as bit-packing and structures with optional fields, to minimize file size.

Simplicity—The format is simple so that the player is small and easily ported. Also, the player depends upon only a very limited set of operating system functionality.

File Independence—Files can be displayed without any dependence on external resources such as fonts.

Scalability—Different computers have different monitor resolutions and bit depths. Files work well on limited hardware, while taking advantage of more expensive hardware when it is available.

Speed—The files are designed to be rendered at a high quality very quickly.

I can't open videos requiring flash player eventhough i've already installed it


If you have Adobe flash player on your computer and you get the message on youtube to download the latest version of Adobe or turn on your Java in place of the video you want to watch, then look at your toolbar at the top of the screen and if there is a pink bar that says the website wants to run an Add On for Adobe flashplayer then click on it and select Allow Add On or Blocked content and the video should run fine.
