I apologize if this does not conform to your forum, but 17 years ago I created a Flash project that very few could fully view because of memory. Today, computer memory is no longer a problem and that combined with the news that Adobe is ending its support for the Flash Player got me thinking about my project again. This is where I seek the communities help. I pretty much have exhausted my search on the web for a place to make the project public. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The project is an interactive how-to book about a child with special needs and his creations. The project’s SWF file size is 48 MB.

If you only have the SWF and not the FLA, I'd suggest getting a debug/standalone Flash Player installed or referring users to one: 
https://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/debug_downloads.html 

This will allow your SWF to run outside the browser. For a native web, in-browser experience... I haven't heard of anything being very successful, sadly.

If you'd like to share it with others who might not want to download a standalone player, you can embed the SWF in a PDF. https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/adding-multimedia-pdfs.html

Thank you, Myra, for taking the time and trying to help--it means a lot. At this point, I feel what I have been searching for does not exist. I just had to pull this project out of the round file when I heard the news about the Flash Player. Unless some divine intervention happens, I am putting it back and moving on—thanks again.
