Adobe Flash conversion

Hello everyone. I am requesting suggestions for the following task:
I am running a Raspberry Pi 1 Model B, Raspian distribution. I also possess a Windows 7 and a Macbook Pro. I have been given a set of VERY SHORT (less than 3 seconds) Adobe Flash animation files on a USB stick. When I first examine the files, they display "generically" but then begin to automatically associate themselves with the Adobe Flash file suite. (Unable to add screenshots due to size limits)
My challenge is that I would like to play them thru the Pi display but obviously the Flash option is out. What alternatives are available that will allow me to play them in a "Pi-acceptable" format

Thank You in advance

I haven't tried any of the mentioned tools, but this blog post -- ... ols-review -- and comments seems to have some good introductory information about the possibility of conversion (SWF to HTML5 solutions).

You could try the Pepper Flash plugin also, but the performance isn't very good. Still, perhaps it would work for your short animation files. There is information on this forum about how to accomplish that.
