Fully control the playback

SWF & FLV Player lets you create and manage playlists - play FLV and SWF files randomly or one by one, repeat one item or the whole playlist, save playlists so you can load your favorite movie collection later.


Browse Web for Flash movies

SWF & FLV Player for Mac will browse any web address to discover and save all SWF files it uses. If any SWF file requires external resources (it may open and play other SWF or FLV files, load images, etc) Eltima SWF player will inform you about it and offer to download all the external required resources as well.
