SWF Movie Player Mac
Eltima Software has introduced a new standalone SWF Movie Player for Mac OS X. Unlike the regular Macromedia Flash Player, the player offers features which allow control of Flash movies. These controls allow users to pause, fast forward and rewind the movie using flexible controls and sliders, while also allow users to create and manipulate playlists, zoom in and out any area of the movie, set playback quality, preview FLV files, and watch the movie in a full screen mode. All of the advanced features presented in SWF Movie Player combine are available within a 'clean' user-friendly interface to match the Mac OS X experience, according to the developer. The Pro version allows users to save currently played Flash movie to the hard drive no matter whether it is loaded from the web site or locally, switch to full-screen viewing mode, fully preview and manage FLV files. The basic version is free of charge while a 'Pro' version is available for $20. Both applications are Universal Binaries (detailed system requirements not available).
