DoubleClick Digital Marketing

Swiffy powers the Flash-to-HTML5 conversion behind DoubleClick Campaign Manager and DoubleClick Bid Manager.

Uploaded Flash assets have HTML5 fallback creatives generated automatically, which are used in environments that don't support Flash, for example on mobile devices. If the device doesn't support HTML5, the backup image is used instead.

In some cases, creatives aren't successfully converted due to unsupported features. The HTML5 fallback creative will only be served if the conversion was successful.

Game designers

The first games that started popping up online were built in Flash, and the Web has a large repository of Flash games. Sadly they're not available on mobile. Depending on the complexity of the games, Swiffy could help mobile users enjoy what was once only available on desktop.
