Error message “We could not share this file because this file type is not supported for file sharing” appears whenever a.SWF file is attempted to be shared during a meeting.
Shockwave Flash (.SWF) files cannot be shared using the file sharing feature.
In this meeting, I do not appear to have the opportunity to share a.SWF file.
The following error message is displayed whenever a user on a version of Webex Business Suite (WBS) 32.10 or later attempts to share a.SWF file during a meeting:
Update for WBS 32.10 and later:
isco Webex will no longer facilitate the transfer of.swf files between attendees of meetings. Please refer to the following link for further details: What’s New in Webex (WBS32).
As a workaround, the users can convert the.SWF file to the MP4 or WMV format using a converter program provided by a third party, and then they can share the file in a meeting by selecting the option to share files.
Please take note that the Webex Technical Support does not support the use of third party converter programs.
