Swfdec or Gnash


Hi,

I do not want to start any flame wars or any thing. Which one plays flash animations and Youtube videos better Gnash or Swfdec? Also, is Swfdec still being developed?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm quite sure gnash plays youtube videos better, not sure about animations, maybe swfdec.

Hi,

Thank you for your reply. I have tried both on Fedora 12 but neither are working correctly so I think I will just use Adobe Flash.

Looks like swfdec development ended in 2008. A shame, because it's much easier code to work with than gnash.
