Where can I find a shockwave-file-to-executable-projector program for Windows? I want to be able to play certain online shockwave videos without having to load them/go online.

Is this two different questions?

I don't mean to be dense, but I am not sure what you are asking.

A "shockwave-file-to-executable-projector" is something I have not heard of before.

However, if you want to play online shockwave, (Flash?), videos offline you will have to download them first. You will have to see if the web sites you visit that have these videos offer a "Download" link for each video. If they don't, then you might be breaching their Copyright rules.

Other than watching Flash videos online, or downloading them to your computer, (with the web sites permission), there is no other way to watch online Flash videos.

What I meant was

Can you download something that can play .dcr files. And I do mean Adobe Shockwave. (By the way, Is it okay to download things like games or movies (with a download manager addon for Firefox, like DownThemAll) for personal use only?

.dcr files

Those file types, .dcr appear to be Kodak RAW Image files;

They can also be Shockwave Media Files, (same web site).

Can you download games and movies? That depends on the web sites themselves. If they allow downloading then that's fine. If they do not, then you might be breaking their Copyright or TOS.
