Syllable, AtheOS Kelly Wilson ported the Gnash Flash player clone to Syllable [screenshot], enabling the playing of Adobe Flash content. It uses the Boost C++ libraries, the SDL and Anti-Grain Geometry libraries for graphics rendering and FFMPEG for multimedia decoding. Work on the player is continuing to add the FreeType library and make the player native to Syllable, so it can be integrated in the web browser. Also, on some Adobe Flash news, an upcoming update will be supporting native h.264 videos, HE-AAC audio support, as well as hardware accelerated, multi-core enhanced full screen video playback.

"Gnash Flash player clone"

That should be either "Gnash Flash player" or "Adobe Flash player clone". Actually, I'm sure the gnash dev would say their goal is to make a (insert praising adjectives) flash player, not specifically a clone of Adobe's player.
