Well, mine is iRaccoonShow. But yes, it is.

The short answer is I can’t. I don’t code.

First of all, the transition time list as eligible for copyright
protection sounds weird to me (it’s a list of pure numbers), but someone
suggested me that the creativity in that list is a plausible option for
copyright protection.

The issue, as far as understand it, was that if the script was under the
GPL and it contained the time list, this might cause the user to release
the presentation under the GPL. (At least the time list would be under
the GPL.)

Gnash doesn’t play that because it has problems playing sounds

And I’m afraid that Gnash is not actively maintained.

Many thanks for your help,
