SWF contains videos and vector-based animations. Unfortunately, you cannot upload SWF files on social media and YouTube. It is also not compatible with the most popular media players. But it is great for encoding browser-based games and animations.

SWF or Small Web Format files can be opened on Adobe Flash Player. However, since 2020, Adobe no longer supports the SWF file format due to security issues and recommends users to uninstall or convert SWF files to other video formats such as MP4.


GIF is an animated graphic or image. Animated GIF images are infinitely looping. You can upload GIF files to Facebook and Twitter. However, it is not a video so you cannot upload GIFs to Instagram or YouTube. You also cannot play GIFs on media players.

GIF stands for Graphics Interchange Format. The pronunciation of GIF has been widely debated, whether it should be pronounced as “jiff” or “gif”—with the “g” pronounced like the g in “goat”. GIF files can contain more than one image.
