Adobe Shockwave and Adobe Flash allow you to play multimedia of various
types created within some of Adobe's software products.
To see if you have the Adobe Shockwave and Adobe Flash plug-ins,
check the two animations below. The first one is a Shockwave movie and the
second one is a Flash animation. It may take a few moments for both of
them to load.
If they refuse to load, two things could be happening. Either your browser's security settings are blocking the plugins, or your computer does not have a recent version of Adobe Flash or Adobe Shockwave installed. To download the latest versions of these plugins click on the buttons, in the Downloads section, at the bottom of this page.
