    Internet Explorer 11.x 64 bit and Shockwave player problem


    Hi

    I have Windows 8.1 Update 64 bit.

    If you want to display with Internet Explorer 11.x 64 bit a video in Shockwave, how should I do?

    In other words, with Internet Explorer 11.x 64 bit, there is a way to
    correctly view this page https://www.adobe.com/it/shockwave/welcome/ or
    similar pages?

    Thanks
    Bye

    There is no 64-bit Shockwave player, only 32-bit, you need to use IE 32-bit.

    By chance, someone has made a plug-in 64 bit for IE 11.x 64 bit that allows to view these pages correctly.

    Thanks

    Any particular reason, you need to run Shockwave? I have hardly seen a webpage, that would use it.

    Shockwave Flash with, Youtube, IPTV programs,etc, tons of places is still needed. In IE 11 it's embedded, in most other browsers you'll have to get a plug-in for it. Luckily, HTML5 is used more and more and most browsers are made ti handle it transparently.

    It's all the same. It contains Flash and is used as distribution, originally from Adobe Director to play flash MM made in that format, became de facto standard for flash.

    Indeed, but there is no need trying to get Shockwave to work, since it is mostly not needed.
