Flash Programs

The best programs for Flash.

Flash Player

It shouldn't need any introduction, anyway Flash Player is a free plugin available for all major web browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.) that allows you to play multimedia content, such as videos, animations and Internet games. It supports all major computer operating systems (Windows, Mac OS X and Linux) while it is not present on Apple's portable devices. If you are using the Google Chrome browser, you do not need to install it as the plugin is an integral part of the browser. Download from here.

Adobe Flash Professional

As its name suggests quite easily, Adobe Flash Professional is the official program for the Flash content creation, through which developers can easily create animations, cartoons, websites and video games that can be played directly online on all browsers. It is mainly aimed at professionals but its user-friendly user interface allows it to be used even by simple enthusiasts. The software is paid but is available in a free trial version that allows you to test all its functions for a period of 30 days. Download from here.

VideoCacheView

When a Flash video is viewed on the Internet, the browser temporarily caches it. VideoCacheView is a small but very effective free program for Windows that allows you to extract Flash videos from cache of all the main web browsers: Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, etc .. Using it is very easy: just start it and you will get a list of all the movies available in the browser cache. Furthermore, since it is a portable program it does not require installations to function and can be transported on any USB pen or external hard disk. Download from here.

Flash Video and Game Recorder

Its name does not deceive. FREE Flash Video & Game Recorder is a very good free program for Windows that allows you to download Flash videos and games from Internet sites in an incredibly quick and easy way. Once installed, the software positions itself in the notification area (next to the Windows clock) and monitors Internet Explorer browsing. When you access a site with videos or games in Flash, it automatically saves the displayed content on your computer, making it available for offline playback. The folder in which to save the Flash contents can be freely chosen by the user. Download from here.

Orbit Downloader

Orbit Downloader is one of the best download manager free available for Windows. Like all programs of this kind, it allows you to download any type of file from the Internet at maximum speed, but its real strength is the integration with browsers such as Internet Explorer and Firefox. By becoming accessible from the context menu of the program to browse the Internet, it also allows you to easily download the Flash contents present in the Web pages, as well as streaming videos, photos and other types of files. It is extremely light and is compatible with all major versions of Windows. Download from here.

AdBlock

AdBlock is a very popular free extension available for some of the main web browsers, such as Google Chrome, Safari and Mozilla Firefox (where there is a variant called Adblock Plus), which allows you to block Flash ads and not just on Internet sites. It is based on blacklists that are automatically updated and makes browsing faster on those sites that make excessive use of banner ads. Of course, it should be used conscientiously since most Internet sites are kept alive thanks to advertising. That is why it includes the ability to activate advertisements on the websites you care about most. Download from here.
