    I had some swf files on my site. I directly linked them and they were played in new tab in full-screen mode.
    After update to 3.6.1, in Chrome and Firefox browsers swf file are downloading instead play but there is no problem in IE.
    I have latest version of Flash player.
    I changed theme to default, but problem is still there.

    for example see this swf file in Chrome and IE:

    Actually I am using WP-SWFObject plugin now. But problem pops up when I want to see Flash files with direct link.

    This one? http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-swfobject/

    As you can see in the warning on the top of the plugins page, the plugin has not been updated or maintained for over two years. Do not use such plugins. Try another plugin.

    Yes, the direct link is the problem that works as a download link. BTW, have you tried using another plugin?
