  • SWField provides an "Flash" widget type to CCK. This modules leverages the functionality of FileField and behaves nearly identically. SWField widgets will give you a nice thumbnail preview of the movie when uploaded. Display options (formatters) within CCK are provided by SWF Tools, a module which this one dependends on. While a few formatters could have been implemented natively in this module, it has been chosen to depend on SWF Tools because this leaves open a handful of options to improve the widget in the future, such as the support for a HTML alternative, support for movie players, to mention a few.
