Is there any way to play a flash animation (swf-file) in slow motion (with a defined factor) in linux? I tried gnash but didn't find any options for this.

  • You could use mplayer with the -speed switch to slow down playback by the factor given as parameter e.g. mplayer -speed 0.2 file.flw. No idea if it works with all swf files (though it seems to be working with a couple of samples from the web). – don_crissti Feb 24 '15 at 18:33

Open you flash animation in mplayer (or some of its clone as mplayer2 or mpv) and play with:

  • [ and ]: Decrease/increase current playback speed by 10%.
  • { and }: Halve/double current playback speed.
  • BACKSPACE: Reset playback speed to normal.
  • .: Step forward. Pressing once will pause movie, every consecutive press will play one frame and then go into pause mode again.
  • ,: Step backward. Pressing once will pause movie, every consecutive press will play one frame in reverse and then go into pause mode again.

  • I think this works only if there is an embedded flv file inside of the swf file. – student Feb 24 '15 at 18:19
