ffmpeg -i compressed.swf out.avi

gives the error

[swf @ 0x10180b000]Compressed SWF format not supported

so I tried

swfcombine -d compressed.swf -o decompressed.swf

ffmpeg -i decompressed.swf out.avi

but I get the error

[swf @ 0x10180b000]Estimating duration from bitrate, this may be inaccurate
decompressed.swf: could not find codec parameters

Either a fix to the above process or different working CL utils would be appreciated!
