Download Lightspark 0 - Described as LGPLv3 licensed Flash player and browser plugin written in C++/C that runs on Linux and Windows
Lightspark is an open source Flash player implementation for playing files in the SWF format. Lightspark can run as a web browser plugin or as a standalone application. There are six alternatives to Lightspark for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Firefox, Linux, Google Chrome and Mac. The best alternative is Ruffle, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Lightspark are Gnash (Free, Open Source), BlueMaxima's Flashpoint (Free), Adobe Flash Player Projector (Free) and XMTV Player (Free).
Testing of Lightspark
An easy way to compare Lightspark to Adobe Flash Player is to use the Flash Player Projector, which is simply a standalone executable of Flash that can be quickly run directly from the command line.
The Flash Player Projector can be found here, or if that link is broken, on this page, under the Linux category. Extract the archive, and then you have your flashplayer executable.
This should be used when testing Lightspark, to discern what are genuine bugs with Lightspark, and what are simply bugs with the SWF file itself. If you think you have found a bug, see our bug reporting help for details.
