Description: SWF (Macromedia Flash) player
 A GTK+ and SDL based player for Macromedia Flash animations.  Includes
 a Mozilla plugin, that embeds the player into Mozilla-based browsers,
 in order to allow seamless viewing of Flash animations in web
 pages.  Includes a GdkPixbuf loader, so that SWF animations can be
 used seamlessly as images in Gtk+ applications.

And I see this when I do a
in Firefox [ Excerpt]:
Shockwave Flash
        File name: libmozswfdec.so
        Shockwave Flash 6.0 animation viewer handled by Swfdec-0.2.2.
        Plays SWF animations, commonly known as Macromedia® Flash®.
        This is alpha software. It will probably behave in many
        situations, but may also ride your motorcycle, drink all your
        milk, or use your computer to browse porn. Comments, feature
        requests, and patches are welcome.
        See http://swfdec.sourceforge.net/ for information.
