 I have a swf file on the sdcard and I wrote a html file flash.html
with the swf file embeded. The only way to open it now is
1) open the browser
2) type in file:///sdcard/flash.html The swf runs fine.

But if use the code list below:
Uri uri = Uri.parse("file:///sdcard/flash.html");
Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, uri);
It shows the error: The application has stopped unexpectly.

I also tried the following code using WebView:
WebView browser = (WebView) findViewById(;

The Webview showed up, but the area should start the swf is empty.

So is there a way to open the html through code?

I also think if there is a way to open the android browser using
ACTION_VIEW by a simple html then reset the URL to be "file:///sdcard/
flash.html" through code?

 You have to use WebSettings to activate the plugins for a WebView.

        WebSettings settings = webView.getSettings();
