            im kinda new to all this stuff and very dumb as to how it works...the other players i use i have just installed and when i wanted to open a specific file {MOVIE) i just hit play and it works...so if you could help at all i would greatly appreciate it!!


            ok i have downloaded and installed flash player..i then went and added to my browser as it says to do..but when i go to add as default player it will not let me nor can i access it straight from the file...

            maybe i am not doing something right and im rather confused...

            i also installed shockwave and im just not sure how all these are suppose to work...

              Flash Player plugin is a browser plugin - it works in the browser, not separate from the browser.


              If you have SWF files that you'd like to view, you'll need to download the standalone player (projector), which is posted at Adobe Flash Player - Debug Downloads
