I can't autoplay SWF files on Android client

I have a digital signage project, and have a hard time using android client.
I have some files in swf format rss feeds news, and I can use them normally in windows and linux clients, but when I play the same design on Android client, (stay like a atached picture), and only starts when I give double click the central icon.
I think the problem is on autoplay, but still have not found how to solve, and the autoplay is setted on in the file and the Flash plugin.
Someone can help me with this?

There’s no support for Flash in Xibo for Android since Adobe have discontinued support for the Android platform some time ago now.

The best place to head for support on the Android client is the Spring Signage Help Desk:

Thank you Alex.
I will search on this link.
I will migrate all my swf files to Html5, but i still need to play those files until the migration.
Very thanks for the help.

To play SWF on Android phone or tablets, there are usually two methods: Method 1: Install a SWF for Android player; Method 2: Convert SWF to Android more supported video format.

It seems that question is about file compatibility issues. Usually if your android can play .swf files, it should be played automatically when loaded. But it cannot because android cannot support .swf files. As for the plugin, it is the same question.

So first we need to figure out why android cannot play .swf files and what format can be played by android. According to Android official site, Android system supports files like H.263, H.264, 3GP, MP4, WMV, MPEG-4, MP3, WAV, .OGG, AAC, WMA, AMR, JPG,GIF,PNG,BMP etc. It is clear that Android does not play SWF files.

If you want to play on android or other devices, you need to convert .swf files to popular formats like .mp3 or .mp4. There are many free tool can do it on the internet. But you need to figure out by yourself. If you prefer a detailed guide on how to solve it, you may try Cicever SWF to Android Converter. It is a free guide and the software is very easy to use and professional. Hope this can be helpful for all the readers here.

I use Avdshare Video Converter to convert between FLA, SWF, MP4, AVI, MOV, WMV, MPG, VOB, etc
Step 1: Click Add File button to add fla to Avdshare Video Converter or drag and drop video files
Step 2: Click Profile drop down button to select your desired video format.
Step 3: Click Convert button to finish converting video files.
