What is an .DCR file?

.DCR is Shockwave Media File

A DCR file is an interactive media file saved in the Shockwave format for distribution on the web. It is often used for creating web games and other highly interactive content.

DCR files are similar to Flash (.SWF) files, but created with Adobe Director rather than Adobe Flash. Adobe Shockwaver Player can also open the file but runs as a web browser plug-in.

NOTE: Director was originally developed by Macromedia, which was acquired by Adobe at the end of 2005.

A DCR file is a component resource file created and used by Delphi, a Windows, OS X, Android, and iOS IDE. It contains a compiled resource, which includes a bitmap image that is used as a component icon for the component palette. DCR files should not be deleted.

The DCR file is the same as the binary .RES file generated by Delph. However, it is used to store the component icon instead of the application's main icon.
