swfdec-gnome is not very interesting. The interesting part is the
mozilla plugin. There is a gnash counterpart for swfdec-gnome, gtk-gnash
(which is the default gnash). And gnash, additionally has a sdl, a fltk
and a kde gui.

It seems that there is a thumbnailer integrated in gnome, though, which
has no counterpart in gnash. It doesn't seems to me, however, that
swfdec-player is much better integrated than gtk-gnash (though it is a
bit better integrated, the difference isn't striking).
