What is WebM?
WebM is a media file format designed for use on the web. It competes with Adobe's Flash format and H.264 and has a major advantage in being an open, royalty-free multimedia format. It defines a matroska-like multimedia container structure consisting of video compressed with the open VP8 codec and audio compressed with the Vorbis audio codec.
What is SWF?
SWF, short for Shockwave Flash and pronounced "swif" is an open file format that was created and developed by Macromedia. Adobe then purchased Macromedia and SWF is available from the acquiring company now.
The format was created to be small enough to publish animations and vector graphics on the Internet and for the most part does so. SWF is occasionally used to create .gifs and menus for DVD movies, as well as television commercials.
