Flash Player and Shockwave Player are both free web players from Adobe. Each has a distinct purpose:

  • Flash Player displays content created with Macromedia Flash such as web application front ends, high-impact website user interfaces, interactive online advertising, and short-form to long-form animation.
  • Shockwave Player displays content created with Macromedia Director┬« such as high-performance multiuser games, interactive 3D product simulations, online entertainment, and training applications. By using extensions, developers can extend the capabilities of the Shockwave Player to play back custom-built applications.
