The Ultimate Flash Player Chrome FIX for 2018

Fix local swf files working in Chrome for good!

My simple html-swf batch file

Bat To Exe Converter (so we can have icons)

Resource Hacker (so you can add all the icon resolutions)

Don’t forget to set the htmlswf.exe as the default app for swf files.
(By right clicking an swf file and selecting always open with htmlswf.exe)

if you need extra help doing that for some reason…
1. Open Control Panel.
2. Click, Programs.
3. Click, Make a file type always open in a specific program.
4. Find .swf and click Change Program.
5. Click More Apps, then Look for another app on this PC.
6. Find where you put htmlswf.exe and choose it.

any other help needing, please ask. c-ya 😉



  • You should make this easier to understand (do the thing from scratch maybe?)

  • Your video should be minute long!
    Just to those few steps:
    1. Create .txt file
    2.Rename it to .html
    3. Open it and write there
    <style>body{margin:0;height:100%}</style><embed src="FILE PATH!!!!!" width="100%" height="100%">
    4. Open it and allow for a flash player to work!

    THAT's IT!!!

  • Instructions to make with Java instead. (to avoid finding a good safe bat to exe converter) (or my download)
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    if(args.length==0) return; // opened without file
    File swf = new File(args[0]); // input file

    // same as my batch below (2:04)
    File savedir = new File(System.getProperty(""),"htmlswf"); // temp folder
    savedir.mkdirs(); // make sure folder exists
    File savefile = new File(savedir,swf.getName()+".html"); // temp file
    String html = "<style>body{margin:0;height:100%}</style><embed src=""+swf+""width="100%"height="100%">";
    try(FileWriter fw=new FileWriter(savefile)){fw.write(html);}catch(Exception e){} // write html
    try{Desktop.getDesktop().browse(savefile.toURI());}catch(Exception e){} // open file

    compile this to runnable jar

    convert jar to exe with Launch4j

    add icons with resource hacker
    Action > Add from a Resource File > (.res, .dll, .exe)
    find chrome.exe (C:Program Files (x86)GoogleChromeApplicationchrome.exe)
    expand "Icon Group", tick "IDR_MAINFRAME" and import
    save as new exe in a new directory

  • Great solution!
    But the Bat-To-Exe from has a trojan, I made this with the good knowed Advanced Bat to Exec Converter 4.11 and no problem with Windows Defender or Bitdefender.
    I bypass the Resource Hacker thing, just downloaded a SWF ico file from internet, then load this on the converter.

  • I know this isn’t related to this video but are you still working on python Minecraft? Also can you do a tutorial series with python and OpenGL I watched your other one on the aiden series but it was a bit to fast paced if you do a tutorial series could you do 2 starting with 2d OpenGL and going to 3d I’m asking a lot lol even one of those things I asked would be sick have a great day sincerely Zach…

  • all this is for, is so we don't have to waste our own time writing a html page for every swf file.
    we can tell the computer to do it for us instantly.
    this isn't specific to chrome. it just opens your default browser.
    so anyway, another title for this could also be, "Automated html generator for swf files".

  • I was looking for a solution to this. Thanks Aiden!
