Mplayer can handle video files of FLV format

FLV = flash video

To install mplayer just do:

$ sudo apt-get install mplayer

Mplayer is in fact able to play almost all kinds of files. So its great to have it installed.

Now if you want to view SWF flash animation files, then you have to install Gnash, its a GNU project.

$ sudo apt-get install gnash

If you want to be able to view SWF files from the browser, then do

$ sudo apt-get install mozilla-plugin-gnash
