What is FlashPlayer - SWF to HTML?
'FlashPlayer - SWF to HTML' is a Chrome extension that allows users to open and play Adobe Animate’s SWF objects in a pure JavaScript emulator. Instead of requiring a native Flash plug-in, it employs two open-source Flash to JS libraries, Ruffle and SWF2JS, as its emulation engine. The extension doesn't run flash objects by default until the user chooses to do so. Embedded Flash objects can also be emulated based on user preference, and it functions in a sandboxed window, ensuring user privacy.

This extension plays SWF objects of Adobe Animate (Flash) in a pure JS emulator without the need to have a native Flash plug-in like Adobe FlashPlayer. The extension uses two open-source Flash to JS libraries (Ruffle and SWF2JS) as its emulation engine. By default, the extension does not play Flash objects instead, the user presses the toolbar button for the extension to find all available Flash objects or links in the current webpage. It will offer the user to select the proper SWF object and then send the link to a stand-alone emulator window. This way Flash objects are only functioning when there is a request. For Flash links, the extension adds a context menu item to these links so you can directly emulate an SWF link. Since this extension does not run Flash by default, it is lighter than other similar extensions. It only runs Flash on demand.

Features: Runs a pure JavaScript-based Flash emulator Does not require any native plug-ins Run in a private sandboxed window to protect the user privacy Use two different engines: Ruffle (https://ruffle.rs/) and SWF2JS (https://swf2js.com/) Optionally emulate all embedded flash objects inside the page (use action's right-click context menu)


  1. This extension uses two open-source emulator engines. The SWF2JS library still does not support all methods available so some SWF objects may crash the engine. The extension always tries to open the emulation window the same size as the actual Flash object, however, you can resize the window to the proper size anytime.

Hello, I hope you're having a splendid day! I am currently seeking opportunities to expand my business operations by investing in extensions with a significant user base, beginning from 50,000 users and up. No matter if your extension has a modest user base or counts its users in the millions, I am interested and ready to negotiate a purchase. If you are in possession of such an extension and looking to turn it into a profit, please consider reaching out to me. We can discuss the price and proceed with a transparent and secure transaction through a trusted escrow service based in the United States. It's great that Google allows the transfer of extension ownership between accounts, so your Google account ownership will remain intact. If you have any needs, please contact us via the following contacts Whatsapp: +1 (248) 896‑8035 Telegram: t.me/harryysandersonn

Wow, this plugin is great! I have only ran into a few issues (specifically newgrounds rumble) but other than that its great! I wanted to rate it because some people dont know how to use it and rate it lower. Just right click on the page with a flash thingy and it should show up.
