"I wanted to install this program but couldn't."

January 11, 2015  |  By alc-mtr

 |  Version: Adobe Shockwave Player 12.1.0.150

Pros

It's Adobe.

Cons

Not really free.

Summary

I found a need to install Shockwave. I made several attempts after declining the unrelated software offering; however, I couldn't get to the install because Adobe wanted me to purchase Photoshop and Lightroom together for $9.99 per month for 12 months. As far as I'm concerned, since I would not use either of those programs, Adobe Shockwave no longer is a free application. That makes me sad because Adobe has always been a resource beginning with Adobe Reader.

"Like Everything Else Adobe - TRASH!"

July 11, 2014  |  By ZemenWambuis

 |  Version: Adobe Shockwave Player 12.1.0.150

Pros

None. None. None.

Cons

Everything Adobe is sand in the vaseline, a fly in the ointment, an immediate dose of 1mg klonopin, an averted rage attack. Enough? Enough! BASTA!

Summary

Adobe and Mac DO NOT work together. End of.

"Does NOT work with Chrome browsers"

April 27, 2014  |  By nmweatherman

 |  Version: Adobe Shockwave Player 12.1.0.150

Pros

None at all.....

Cons

Will make your Chrome browser unresponsive and/or cause it to crash

Summary

Like others here I have tried this software many times and IT DOES NOT WORK with a Chrome browser. It will cause web pages to hang, and it will become unresponsive, and it will crash your Chrome browser. Don't waste your time.

"Worthless Keeps Crashing"

June 29, 2013  |  By Pixiduzt

 |  Version: Adobe Shockwave Player 12.0.2.122

Pros

I don't see any...

Cons

Keeps Crashing, Lagging and refuses to play videos.

Summary

If there is another option out there instead of Flashplayer, no matter how many times I've tried to "fix" it, it just does NOT work, WAY to many bugs in their system... some a** programmer has been either Lazy or Drunk making the code to this one. it just does not work with ANYTHING. not a single Browser can handle it without crashing atleast 14 times in one youtube-clip of up to 4:00 minutes.

"SIMPLY AWFUL- the New version!!!"

May 28, 2013  |  By Mich240

 |  Version: Adobe Shockwave Player 12.0.2.122

Pros

ABSOLUTELY NONE!!! There are no redeeming points to this version - period!

Cons

Very ANNOYING that some script keeps crashing my computer. Newest version is FAR WORSE than the previous.

Summary

New shockwave player keeps running a script that is bogging down my computer or crashing it every 5-10 minutes. I downloaded the newest version and it's worse than the version before.

Updated on May 28, 2013

Forgot to include the problem shockwave version:
Adobe Shockwave Player 12.0.2.122

Pros

No pro's for me, as I can't read text on my monitor anymore

Advertisements with movements, which are powered by adobe shockwave, causes flurry and unreadable text om my LCD Dell screen.

When Shockwave is disabled in the browser, the problem disappears.
