How do I run SWF files?
Already created these files can be executed from a plugin. You may be wondering, what is a plugin? It’s an application or a computer program that relates to another to add a new very specific function. SWF files run from a plugin called Adobe Flash Player to give more animation or be more interactive with users. This plugin allows to reproduce these SWF files, which have been created in a smaller way and can be executed from any platform and by any operating system such as Windows or Linux.
