I don't actually use Macromedia Flash but an animation program called Toon Boom. However, my question is Flash-related (I think) so I hope I'm not 'intruding' too much. Would much appreciate some help.
I'm trying to play .swf files on my mac but I just can't find a player anywhere. I have the Internet (downloadable) Flash Player on my computer but it won't play .swf files. It's pretty annoying because on my PC I can just download a swf player and all is well. On my Mac, however, I can't find 'anything' that will play them.
When I try to play them it just opens Illustrator, which (of course) does nothing.
Another weird (but interesting) thing is that, though I've loaded Macromedia's Flash Player from the Internet I can't actually find the 'player' anywhere on my computer. I've had 'computer guys' look for it too, to no avail. What's with that?
Control clicking your swf in the finder will open a dialog menu. Select Open with... and look for SAFlash Player whatever version of flash player yo uhave. Mine is SAFlash Player (Default) 8.02 r2 and appears first in the list.
