Did you tried LightSpark yet? (http://lightspark.github.com/)
They have ActionScript 3 support, experimental but worth a try.

The thing is, your Flash file used ActionScript 3.

You can verify it yourself by right-clicking on that white area
File > Properties > Stage Properties > Root VM version

If it shown "AVM2 (unsupported)", you're out of luck :)

Gnash didn't support playing Flash file with ActionScript 3 (just ActionScript 2 or 1).
And developer cannot make Gnash support them, since they need to rewrite the whole thing to make it so.

P.S. Gnash devs' nomenclature for ActionScript 3 is "AVM2"
and ActionScript 2,1 is "AVM1"

Hi folks

I was looking for a powerful flashplayer that can be used with linux raspbian and I found gnash, which is doing very well so far.

However, I’m facing a problem with the file that I have attached (open-flash-chart-2-lug_wyrm_charmer.swf). When the file is played e.g. with the Firefox-Browser, it plays well. I have attached a picture with the output in Firefox (firefox-output.jpg). However, gnash is not able to play it. It opens a window with a white surface. That’s all...

I installed gnash on different platforms, e.g. windows, linux ubuntu and linux raspbian. The result was always the same.

I really need this thing to play with gnash. Can you help me?

Kind regards,

Roman Meier <gnashi>
