I have a *.swf file, and I don't have flash player installed on my Windows XP machine.

Is there any way to play the .swf file using Google Chrome or is there any web app that allows me to play .swf? I don't mind installing any browser plugin, but I do mind installing any desktop application.

Do you need to install Adobe Flash Player on your system? –  abhi Sep 8 '11 at 21:00

Unless mistaken, you need the plugin to play SWF files as the SWF requires the actionscript library's to function.

Chrome comes with flash built in. –  Rich Bradshaw Nov 18 '10 at 17:29

You can play .swf files with Google Chrome. Just drag the file from its current location to your current tab.
