SWF files not loading

Hello-

I'm having an issue with inserting SWF files into my courses. When I try to insert SWF files, I do not get a video placeholder as I do with other types of video files (it just appears as a black or white rectangle), and the videos do not seem to work in preview or published versions. When inserting the files, the preview of the video in this window plays just fine. 

I want to use a specific SWF file in the presenter panel of the current project I'm working on. At first the preview of this file was just stuck on "loading" and the content on my slide did not show up at all.  I tried to simply put the file into a slide instead of the presenter panel, but that does not work either. Tried other SWF files, and no luck with those, yet an MP4 file works just fine.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!!
