A swf file is a flash file if I'm not wrong and you'll probably need a flash player to open it.

You are correct.

Also, in BC's Freeware Replacements for Commercial Apps section,

the programs "Wimpy" and " Swiff Player" are suggested to allow you to open "swf"s in a standalone situation.

They are under the "Video Applications" section.

Enjoy.

I use both Swiff Player, and Wimpy.
The advantage of Wimpy, is that it will play both .swf (Macromedia Flash Format File), and .flv (Flash Video File) files.
