While surfing on the internet, you will definitely come across interactive multimedia content including images, Video clips, audio clips, games, animations etc. Well, you are able to view these things because of a software known as Flash Player.
FutureWave Macromedia was the developer of Flash Player, but later Adobe Systems took over Macromedia. Since then, Adobe manages the development and distribution of the Flash Player. It is also called as Adobe Flash Player.
The flash player accesses and executes the SWF files (ShockWave Flash). As a result of which, you are able to view the websites with multimedia content. This file format is dedicated to vector and raster graphics. The browsers have the flash player embedded within them. A number of entities are supported by Flash player which include:
- 2-D and 3-D animations
- vector and Raster graphics
- Speex audio codec
- HD Quality videos
- Content protection etc.
When you see a missing plugin message on a website which says “Click to enable Adobe Flash Player“, it means that Flash Player is disabled on your browser.
