You will see the Swf media type added to the “Media Types” node. Their corresponding properties is shown on the right panel. The properties like Name, Alias, Icon,Thumbnail and Description are shown in the Info tab.

Structure tab contains allowed types under this media node we created now.

Generic properties tab, can be used to add additional properties and document types for the selected media node.

Tabs as the name suggests, used to add more custom tabs to the media type selected.

Now, once you finished setting the properties for the selected media type,save and go back to media section to see the new media type(Swf) we added.
