how to play flash swf

I downloaded a flash swf file onto my computer, but I don't know how to play it. Sure it plays on the website but I want to have it on my computer for non-internet use. I tried using quicktime for it, but it says invalid media data was found in the file. Can I convert flash to mpeg? How can I play this?

You can open them in Safari (or the browser you are using). Drag it to the Safari icon while holding down the command and options keys (otherwise Safari will refuse to open it).
