Adobe flash player vs shockwave player the difference?


I'm cleaning up my system. It seems to have bits and pieces of several versions.

I used the uninstaller here http://www.adobe.com/support/flashpl...ml#uninstaller
to get rid of all the Flash players installed and then installed the latest version.

What is the difference between adobe flash player and shockwave player?
Do they play different files? Is there an uninstaller for the shockwave player?

I'm just wondering if there is an uninstaller for the Shockwave player? If there is I could uninstall the one I have and do a clean install of the latest version.

I don't know what the difference is between the flash player and shockwave player. Off to do some reading....

The difference between the Macromedia Flash and Shockwave Players

Flash and Shockwave Players are both free web Players from Adobe. Together, they bring you the best rich media content on the Internet. Each has a distinct purpose. Flash Player delivers fast loading front-end web applications, high-impact web site user interaction, interactive online advertising, and short to medium form animation.

Shockwave Player displays destination web content such as interactive multimedia product demos and training, e-merchandising applications, and rich-media multi-user games. Through Xtras, Shockwave Player is also extendable to playback custom-built applications.

Oh, you should be able to uninstall Shockwave via Add/Remove programs.
