What about all those old SWF files?

I am currently a provider of technical training and support in the electronic manufacturing industry. My prior training and work experience as a teacher, network administrator, web design, and instructional design make me well prepared to design it, develop it, and deliver it. I am a father of five, a US Army veteran, and I enjoy playing the guitar as well as performing in local community theater.

I’ve seen several posts related to the SWF output and the lack of browser support or simply having issues playing them.

I also have a number of projects that were published as SWF from old versions of Captivate. In many cases, all I have any longer is the final SWF. I sometimes like to show them as examples to others.

I utilize a small little SWF player that has, for me, worked very well – and the price is right (FREE)!

Perhaps it will help someone else out there.

Thanks for the tip. I’m wondering if there is any drawback of using SWF as embedded content in a responsive Captivate project and deploying it as a PhoneGap-based mobile application. Any ideas?

I do not have any experience with PhoneGap so I cannot speak to any capabilities related to it.

That being said – it would be my impression that sticking with HTML5 is a safer bet.

You may wish to pose that question to the community at large as you will have a better chance of reaching someone else that has worked with PhoneGap.
