Adobe Flash Player is a free program for playing Shockwave Flash Files/SWF files. These formats allow you to play different content (videos, ads, applications, and more).

What is Adobe Flash Player?

Adobe Flash Player for Mac is a media player for running programs written in the ActionScript language. Many web browsers have Flash Player built-in, or the program is distributed as a plugin. The program has been discontinued since 2021.

This SWF player plays content on the web. The content is available for editing and creating in Adobe Animate CC and Adobe Flash Builder. The Adobe Flash Player supports the following formats:

  • XML,

  • JSON,

  • AMF,

  • MP3,

  • FLV,

  • PNG,

  • JPEG.

Additionally, Flash Player is embedded in streaming videos used on Youtube, Hulu, Yahoo! Video, etc.

Adobe Flash Player compatibility

Adobe Flash Player is compatible with any website that has Flash support. Flash Player functions on both macOS and Windows with Linux. On Mac, Adobe Flash Player works with Firefox, Google Chrome, and Opera.

Benefits

Creating/displaying content in Flash provides less bandwidth usage with programs embedded in the selected browser. The player works with audio, video, and interactive programs, allowing you to play, and view interactive banners, quizzes, videos, etc. Flash Player also displays animated ads.

Adobe Flash Player and Mac

Flash Player has security vulnerabilities, so Apple blocks parts of the program. Safari has the Flash plugin, but Apple is done with Adobe Flash Player support. iOS devices also do not support Flash.

Conclusion

Adobe Flash Player is a media player that plays SWF, and it is also a built-in program in many browsers. Adobe Flash Player for Mac works with Firefox, Chrome, and Opera.
