Sorry, I don't know anything about dxr. But why can't you just output

Mplayer can't playback swf files. It can't demux them. But maybe it can
do that though libavformat, because ffmpeg has some swf support.
Unfortunately, I found only two swf files with video (I bet it's h263)
on my harddrive, but they are a bit different from most other files,
Macromedia Flash data (compressed), version 6
instead of something like
Macromedia Flash data, version 5
and ffplay chokes on them, saying
[swf @ 0x41171b6c]Compressed SWF format not supported
swf files with videos are rare, and it looks to me that most of new
flash 6 and (all?) flash 7 files are "compressed", so I can't test
whether ffplay and mplayer will actually play "uncompressed" video swf
file. Maybe they will.
To install support of these codecs, download codecs package from
mplayer's website, or download rpm if your system is rpm-based. Dunno
which one you should get, I suggest most complete one, it supports all
of them (except maybe vp7) for sure.
