--max-advances num
Exit after specified number of frame advances.
Start in fullscreen mode.
Start without displaying the menu bar.
--screenshot list
Set a list of frame advances to be saved as screenshots. The list must be comma-separated. Valid values are integers and the phrase "last". If "last" is specified, the final frame before exit is saved. Invalid values are ignored. Frame numbers apply to the sequence of frames as the SWF is executed, not the frame sequence defined in the SWF. Use in combination with --screenshot-file to specify output filename.
--screenshot-file file
Specify the output pattern for screenshot filenames. The token %f in a pattern will be replaced with a frame identifier. If you specify multiple frames and do not use %f, the file will be overwritten for each screenshot. If this option is not specified but screenshots are requested, a default filename will be used.


Toggle pause.
Restart the movie.
Force immediate redraw.
Toggle fullscreen. ESC also exits fullscreen.
Save a spontaneous screenshot. If no screenshots were requested from the command line, a default filename is used. Otherwise, the same filename pattern is used for requested and spontaneous screenshots.
