Swfdec is the library for decoding and rendering Flash animations. It is still in heavy development. The intended audience are developers or people using it for pretested Flash animations (think embedded here). If you use it on unknown content, expect it to have issues and don't be surprised if it crashes. If you encounter such a crash however, make sure to file a bug immediately.
Swfdec-Mozilla contains a plugin for Mozilla browsers that uses the Swfdec library for playing SWF files.
