Hi mpitak,

You shouldn't really be doing this, but you can open up Notepad, add this:

<a href="urltoswf">Here</a>

Then, save it as swf.html. Open it up by double clicking. Right click the link and select Save As Target...

Regards,

Hi Mpitak,

You can run swf file offline if it contains all resources inside one (swf) file. Sometimes some flash developer breakdown the swf movie in seperate file. Like actionscript, sound file and so on.

In order to run swf file offline, I suggest you to download the .swf by any download manager software. You can use getright, flashget or whatever you like.

Flashget download manager :

OR

You can save swf with the help of this site :

Hi rsdn,

I could download the swf file as you suggest. But I run with IE in offline mode. It does not work, only black screen.
This could be that all resources are not included in swf file, correct ?

here is the link

Hi mpitak:

Wonder.swf is working fine in my computer even offline. There might be two problems in your case :

- The swf file corrupted when you download.
- You don't have installed flash player in your computer.

Try in both way :

- Download the swf file again with flashget download manager which I provided before.
- Install the flash player from here :

It seems you get the same type of taste like me. You can download the following swf files which I find COOL, also try to open the speaker :

The Interview with GOD: http://168.143.173.209/IWG_net.swf

Pathway to Peace : http://128.121.245.20/pathways/pathways_net.swf

HI RSDN,

Now I can run in the offline mode, but there is no sound.

I love both links that you introduce above. It's so beautiful.

Thanks for your advise

In my computer, I can hear the sound too. Please check your volume control in the monitor as well as speaker. Thanks for the grade. ^**^
