Much of the online entertainment media available on the Internet requires Flash Player or Shockwave Player Internet browser plugins in order to be rendered.
Although Flash Player is a more frequent occurrence on the day by day web-surfing experience, required for a wide range of web applications, interactive online advertising or websites, Shockwave Player is the designated tool for the deployment of demanding 3D web applications, online games or complex real-world physics simulations.
Adobe Shockwave Player offers users the possibility to enjoy the high-quality 3D graphics of interactive presentations or applications involving a significant amount of charting or calculating, but it is mostly used for its online gaming deployment capabilities.
The software offers playback support for applications developed using Adobe Director, a superior tool mainly used for its hardware-accelerated 3D, and support for various network protocols.
If you want to make sure you can open all the latest Adobe Director applications you have to keep your Shockwave Player up to date. This is quite simple, since any application that requires Adobe Shockwave Player to run, redirects you to the latest version of the plugin.
The installation takes only a few seconds and in no time at all you can enjoy the desired online multimedia content. There is no user interface for the application or settings you have to worry about. It fully integrates in your Internet browser and can always be disabled in the Plugins section.
