I confirm watch.swf is SWF9 but gnash plays fine.
It's been reported to have problems when the 'startStopped' directive is set.
Also, gstreamer media handler might suffer from timing issues.

It would, if someone implements it. In trunk I added recognition of .flv files, 
so you'd
get a different error message, more instructive about it.

Biggest SWF9 support limit is ABC interpreter. We're planning support for it.
SWF8 support should be fairly advanced. Please file bugs as  you find problems.
