Most browsers are blocking SWF files, unless wrapped in HTML.  You can use the Flash Player projector to view the SWF files.  Download is available at Adobe Flash Player - Debug Downloads Note that as of Flash Player 23, local content is blocked by default.  Instructions for allowing local content is available in Release Notes Flash Player 23 AIR 23 in the 'Disabling local-with-filesystem access in Flash Player by default' section.

I have created 360 Vr movies that are output as swf files that are wrapped in HTML and they don't play on my computer. They used to work in Firefox only, but no longer seem to load. If I load the files to my web server they work, but not off my computer and I would like to show from my desktop. How can I disply the 360 Vr movies on my computer?

Local file system access was disabled by default in Flash Player 23.


Work-around to re-enable local file system access is documented in the Release Notes Flash Player 23 AIR 23 in section Disabling local-with-filesystem access in Flash Player by default

Thanks but that is not the answer I was looking for – I found a SWF File player that displays the SWF files on my desktop so I can show clients my SWF VR movies – that is what I needed and I have now found it. I am surprised Adobe does not make this known or produces their own SWF player. See softfamous.com to download the SWF player - that is the answer I think most of want and it seems to work as required.

Thank you

I misunderstood.  Adobe does have a SWF player, Flash Projector, that plays raw SWF files.  It's posted at Adobe Flash Player - Debug Downloads​.  Since you mentioned the SWF content is wrapped in HTML, I interpreted it that you couldn't play the SWF content when hosted locally, which is why replied as I did.
