What is a DCR file?

A DCR file is an interactive media file saved in the Shockwave format for distribution on the Web. It is often used for creating web games and other highly interactive content.

More Information

DCR files are similar to Flash (.SWF) files, but created with Adobe Director rather than Adobe Flash. Adobe Shockwaver Player can also open the file but runs as a web browser plug-in.

NOTE: Director was originally developed by Macromedia, which was acquired by Adobe at the end of 2005.
