    Well SWF is ShockWave Flash so it only seems logical that it requires a Flash plugin.

    If you can't find it, that likely means your Android version isn't compatible with it.

    Well i think first the only androids able to runs stand alone flash is anything up to 4.1, any higher and is no go. (Or you need a mod of some kind to the os) other than that you have to install the flash player listed as 4.1 and use dophin browser as from what i know to even run a flash program on the thing.

    So far i know no other way to run any flash. Weather it be a game or video, the dolphin browser is what been working so far.

    Wonder why flash stopped being a thing for mobile devices anyway? Computers still use it, and even psp had support for it in their web browser, then suddenly no one care for mobile flash anymore. No more new grounds flash videos. :ninja:

    Try FlashFox, it's a standalone app.

    You might be able to convert it to Adobe Air apk, you'd probably have decompile the swf first though.
    MDickie.com Android conversions use Adobe Air so could try asking him.

    It's a web browser, but AFAIK it can open swf files on local storage (if you specify them in the URL bar).
