xpdf, which swftools uses, doesn't appear to handle your
pdf very well, and seeing what has been used to create
it, I can't say I'm surprised. ;o) 

pdfinfo gives:

Having taken a quick look at silver.pdf, I feel I also
have to enquire as to why you appear to be using a
sledgehammer to crack a very small egg.

What you have is a simple animation over a background picture.
Why then go through the pain of creating a pdf, then having to
convert it again?  IMHO there are enough animation or epub creation
programs out there that would do the job a darn site better, create
a smaller more usable and accessible file, and save you a load of
hassle!  Especially if this is for display within a browser.
