Shockwave Flash file.

A .swf file is a Shockwave Flash file. It is also known as an Adobe Flash file - because Adobe took over the company which originally developed the Flash file. A Flash file is a format for delivering graphics and animation over the internet.

For a Flash file to be incorporated into an html file requires html similar to the following:

<object width="300" height="200">
<param name="movie" value="someflashfile.swf">
<embed src="someflashfile.swf" width="300" height="200">
