For your convenience, the top Flash player alternatives in this article are divided into three rubrics based on the platforms, browsers, and devices you can use to install them. Feel free to explore all the categories to find one or two solutions that match your needs more closely.
Lightspark is an open-source tool available both as a desktop application and a browser extension. This player runs any kind of Flash-based format on Windows and Linux and works well in Chrome, Opera, Firefox, and other browsers. Lightspark provides an extended set of code-editing features and also allows for viewing H.264 Flash videos on YouTube. You can download it here.
OpenSilver is a free open-source tool serving as an alternative to Microsoft Silverlight. OpenSilver is more a development tool than a player, but you can use it to run Flash-based content on your Windows PC. OpenSilver is compatible with both desktop and mobile browsers. Powered by WebAssembly, it not only supports SWF format but also enables work with different programming languages for web development. You can download OpenSilver here.
Gnash flash player is another app that comes as a standalone desktop player and a web browser plugin. It supports all Flash-based multimedia formats and serves as a great alternative to Adobe Flash Player for Mac. As a plugin, Gnash is available in many popular browsers. Its version for Windows, however, has not received updates since 2012, so it provides no support for SWF version 10. You can download Gnash here.
Elmedia Player is a media player that supports displaying different video formats on Mac, including FLV and SWF files. Users can stream Flash videos from their macOS devices via AirPlay and broadcast them on a smart TV. Elmedia Player also enables playback control and working with subtitles, and lets you enjoy viewing Flash videos in a full screen mode. You can download it here.
Lunascape is quite unique yet still user-friendly and free. If you want to go beyond standard browsers and explore the net in a brand-new way powered by three different rendering engines, Lunascape is a fine choice. You can download it here.
