For Mac OS 8 - 8.1 - Mac OS X
This app works with: SheepShaver,

Macromedia's SA (stand-alone) FlashPlayer 7 does not use a browser to play .swf files, games etc;

It comes with an option to save .swf files as stand-alone playable applications in their own right (double-click to play apps). Macromedia calls this kind of app a "Projector".

This download contains the SAFlashPlayer in multiple languages, German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Korean, Chinese and Taiwanese.

Carbonized, the SAFlashPlayer runs on PPC Macs, OS version 8.6 to OS X 10.4.11 (Tiger). It may run on a Mac OS earlier than 8.6 but this is untested by me.

By all accounts it requires a fast PPC especially if you want to play or convert CPU intensive Flash games (such as Pepsi-Pinball), I recommend a 1 GHz or better PPC, this would negate a Mac OS less than 9.x

All screenshots were taken running the SAFlashPlayer, on Mac OS 8.6 (via the SheepShaver emulator running on Windows XP). Smile

This 1st dL is version 7.0r19 - if you have either older or newer v7 SAFP (NOT browser plugins!) please Please upload those to this page!

Architecture: PPC

Requires: a PPC Mac running Mac OS 8.6 to 10.4.11. This application also runs on SheepShaver, but fast (complex) game play is not an option here, at best (on SheepShaver) this is fine for playing or converting Flash music clips or simple turn based games.
Requires: CarbonLib 1.4 or newer on Mac OS 8.6 to 9.2.2.

May work in PPC Leopard 10.5x, as yet not tested here.

Here's the link to download the final versions for OS9 and older, for OSX, and PPC/Itnel:

Look for the fine print that says "If your operating system is not displayed, refer to the Archived Flash Player versions page" which ultimately takes you here:

Many of the downloads contain versions for every platform, i.e. Mac, Linux, Windows, Solaris, plugin and standalone. The 10.1.102 standalone player is only 8MB but it's in a 126MB download. V10 is better than v7 if you're running OS 10.4.

LOTS of Flash players/plugins on that page, going back to v2. Might it be worth archiving a few other select ones here too?
