how to play a flash file(.swf) in u3d
Using a search engine (as the FAQ suggets) might be a good idea
SWF is a vector animation file format, widely used to author cartoon animation that is drawn by human hands. It has much smaller file size and very high image quality for any image size, compared to general pixel based video format, such as H.264, WMV.
However, this format is not suitable for general videos shot by camera. What’s more, this format is not supported by most popular multimedia devices and players like iPhone, iPod, Android, Xbox 360, PlayStation, Windows Media Player, etc.
