Stand alone .swf player

Hi everyone! I need some help here. Where can I download a stand alone .swf player? It's gotta be free. Thanks very much in advance!

I think realplayer does, but I always use plugins to play them.

There is swfdec. It's available here. It's a gstreamer plugin. I've never used it so don't ask me how to use it.

You'll find it a much better player than the plugin.

It doesn't seem to be in development atm...I couldn't find an official page for it?
