In spite of the fact that Flash has become one of the leading media containers, it is not fully supported by Windows operating system. This means that, unlike other media files, Windows Explorer is incapable of showing thumbnails or previews of Flash Files and even web browsers require a plugin to show this type of files effectively.
SWF Media Browser is intended to help you deal with Flash media files. In this respect, it is very similar to file commander allowing you to copy, rename, delete or move SWF files. However, it does much more than that. Behind a very intuitive interface, there is a very powerful application offering lots of other functions.
You can begin by opening a folder and this application will immediately show thumbnails of the SWF files stored there. It just seems incredible how the program manages to show previews of all the movies at the same time. There will also be a list of the files and their properties. If you choose one of the files, it will automatically start playing using the built-in player, which can be maximized to occupy the entire screen.
Other features include extracting sound from the flash movie, capturing screen and creating wallpapers or screensavers. In addition, this is a tool that will let you convert executable files into SWF or vice versa. Perhaps you might find useful its capacity to take you straight to the temporary Internet files folder, an easy way to access the SWF stored there. Furthermore, SWF Media Browser will let you share your files by mailing them to your contacts.
On the whole, SWF Media Browser is a well-designed, robust and powerful software application. One limitation, however, is that it does not allow to manage FLV files, another Flash format that has become quite popular in the last few years.
