I discovered that I can play my shockwave audio files (.swa) in the Quicktime player. I am currently setting up a sound-video library for use over the internet. Is it possible to use my .swa files for the user to play via his/hers Quicktime player, so I dont have to make a Shockwave application?

    Accepted Solution

    SWA files are basically just MP3 without some of the tag info so many players that can handle MP3 can read SWA.
