to get SWF's from pages it will work maybe 2/3 times, is to simply hit control and click and click save page as .. web archive and run it through file juicer , gets most games and movies

I like the marketing idea of it. But then again, opening a whole nother window to play a flash game seems like more clutter unless you open your browser, find the flash game, and then quit your browser when iSwiff launches.

Appears to work OK, but is redundant as Macromedia provides a free flash player at their website. Hard to find, though.

As far as getting flash files from websites, if the website serves the file (i.e., it isn't loaded from another server) try saving the webpage using Camino. There are also websites that provide free downloads of flash files, like dumpalink.com.

I just checked and Macromedia's flash player is much easier to find now. Here's the link:

In safari, go to the page the flash is on, hit command-option-U and search for .swf Then download that file from either google, wget or whatever.

Or use FireFox. Hit page info, click the media tab. Locate the swf and hit download (or whatever it says!)

Or (in Safari), open the Activity window, find the file for the page you're viewing, and option-doubleclick on it (if I remember correctly... my iBook's dead at the moment. :( )

Excellent piece of software. It will likely become very useful now that QuickTime 7 no longer plays Shockwave files. Only feature I'd like to see is the ability to stretch the files to fill the screen in full screen mode, if that's possible. Excellent little utility.

cool that it's free, but what is the difference between this and Macromedia's free Stand alone Player ? (Other than you have dig around for it on their site. )Thanks
