Portable .swf player...

Hey all,

Hope this is the right place to post this. My question is: is there a portable app out there that can play .swf files? On my notebook, I can play them using Media Player Classic and the .swf plug-in. But on a portable hard drive on various computers, I can't replicate the experience. VLC can play .flv files, but not .swf. Anybody know of something that can?

Thanks.

not aware of one.
Edit: Try Swiff Player.

Yeah, I was going to say that FxP is a great portable Flash player.

Yes

but I believe he means Standalone.
BTW, does this happen to anyone else:
When I open a SWF file in FF, it brings up a download dialog. I think it might be either MozOpenDownload or Download Statusbar doing it.

Have you checked your version?

That has only happened to me when I did not have the latest Flash Player or Shockwave Player.

Do you do the right thing even when no one will know you did?

Here it is.

Why not FF?

Why don't you use Firefox for it? It's fine for playing flash. And for flv, try FLV Player.

Flash Movie Player v 1.4

Try Flash Movie Player v 1.4. http://www.eolsoft.com/freeware/flash_movie_player/

Free, but not Open. Natrually portable. No registry entries (unless you associate it with .swf files). One ini file in application folder and 1 exe - that's it. No stray preference files. Less than 350 Kb HD footprint (after UPX compression? - I cannot remember). Playlist, etc.

Invaluable for showing flash movies of G. W Bush to friends on their machine (without starting IE. Smiling

Enjoy.
