If you can export it as a .flv file you can probably play it on the Mac using the free VLC player.

You have to extract the video from the .exe file - here is a utility that will do it.  You will have to run this on a windows computer but the extracted file can then be run on a mac.

Hi,

We created SWF file and converted it as a movie file for Apple devices.

Thanks,
