OO.o Flash Viewer
OpenOffice.org and StarOffice have a really neat feature where Impress presentations (and imported Powerpoints) can be exported as web-friendly flash files. The drawback is that the navigation included in the flash file is rudimentary -- you can only advance one frame at a time and you can't go back. This is a container movie for these files that provides full navigation.

If you want to convert your flash movies from OpenOffice.org or StarOffice to standalone swf files with navigation controls then you can use swfcombine from the free SWFTOOLS project together with this movie to do so.
