What is FLV

Flash Video is a container format used to store and display lightweight video on webpages. It’s encoded in the same way as an SWF, the only difference being that FLVs are non-interactive. FLV was often used on streaming platforms, even YouTube; nowadays, it’s been completely phased out in favor of MP4 and WebM.

What is SWF

SWF, short for "small web format", is a popular Flash media container. Sharing the same technology as FLV, it offers one significant change - interactivity. Lightweight and highly interactive animations provoked an entire cultural boom, spawning a generation of memorable media. Now that it’s no longer supported, HTML5 took up the same niche. If you’re getting nostalgic, look for an SWF player for Mac.
