Interpreting ABC bytecode (AVM2) which was introduced in SWF9.
Not all SWF9+ files do contain ABC code.
Those that do, gnash fails to play.

File > Properties output is big. Don't remember out of the box if for each and
every component of the display list we also print version, but thing is if
an SWF5 loads an SWF9 with ABC code in it you'll have that part unsupported.

Best way to get notified when things don't work would likely be implementing
a console pop-up containing ERROR lines...
