    I just dowloaded a copy of SWF Browser and I am having problems retrieving swf from the web to use as a learning tool. Could you please suggest ways of doing this!

    Thank You

    Hi,

    You can get the SWF from your browsers cache most of the time.

    Also you can view the source html and get the path/name of the SWF file, create a quick HTML file with the SWF link and then right click choose 'save target as' (IE).

    I've just checked, no problem. Here's what i did:

    A
    Entered the URL to IE and let it load.
    Opened folder windows/temporary internet files
    Sorted the contents by 'last accessed'
    dragged and dropped 344k SWF file into an open folder

    B
    Created new txt file
    Wrote the following (hope this shows alright):
    <html>
    <a href="http://www.swift3d.com/swf/v07_10_20.swf ">
    the swf
    </a><html>
    Renamed the file to an html
    Opened file with IE
    Right clicked the link and selected 'save target as'

    Yet another way you can achieve this is by viewing the source and opening the SWF itself.

    You will still need to retrieve the SWF out of your cache though.
