JPEXS Free Flash Decompiler

Opensource flash SWF decompiler and editor. Extract resources, convert SWF to FLA, edit ActionScript, replace images, sounds, texts or fonts. Various output formats available. Works with Java on Windows, Linux or MacOS.

Application description and features

For information about using the software, list of features, etc., visit FFDec Wiki. website

In the past (before 2018), we were using domain as HomePage, GitHub for source code, now we moved all information to Github.

Download application

For downloading the app, see latest release. Older versions and nightly builds are availabe on releases section

How to install

See installation section of wiki

Source code

How to get source

You can make local copy of the sources with the following command:

git clone


Git source control manager supports multiple code branches. We use two main branches.

  • master - for released "stable" versions
  • dev - for newest changes from developers - "nightly" version is released from this branch

You can switch to dev branch with following git command:

git checkout dev

GIT recommended

It is recommended to have GIT commandline executables installed. Building script uses GIT to include revision number in to the binary. (For Windows, you must enable Git in windows commandline during installation.)

Netbeans project

Source code contains Netbeans Project so you can open it in Netbeans IDE. Then you can use standard actions like Run, Build,Debug, Clean and Build in the IDE. Other specific tasks can be executed via menu on build.xml (see Ant part)


If you do not have Netbeans, you can build source code also with Apache Ant. After installing Ant it is good to put it into your PATH variable. Open up commandline and navigate to sources directory. To run application, execute task "run" by entering this command:

ant run

To only build, execute build task:

ant build

For creating EXE, Installer and ZIP version, there exist Ant tasks "exe","installer","release". These tasks require additional software installed:

  • launch4j (3.5 or newer) - creates windows executable
  • NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System) (3.0b3 or newer) - creates installer

You must configure installation path of these tools in file, which could look like this for windows:

nsis.path = c:\\program files (x86)\\NSIS
launch4j.path = c:\\program files (x86)\\launch4j

Building libraries

There are few libraries which need to be built too. These libraries are placed in "libsrc" directory.

  • FFDec_lib - core of decompilation, SWF parsing, exporting This library is built automatically with main project, but can be build also separately with its own Ant script.
  • jpacker - used for compression of JavaScript Canvas scripts (Netbeans/Ant project)
  • jpproxy - proxy part of FFDec (Netbeans/Ant project)
  • jsyntaxpane - code editor (Netbeans/Apache Maven project)
  • LZMA - used for SWF compression (Netbeans/Ant project)
  • nellymoser - used for Nelly Moser sounds decoding (Netbeans/Ant project)
  • Swf2Exe - Stub for "Save to EXE" feature (Delphi 7 Project)
  • ttf - used for TTF font export (Netbeans/Ant project)
  • gnujpdf - used for PDF export (Netbeans/Ant project)

Change log

All notable changes are listed in the file


Nightly builds

When a commit is pushed/merged into dev branch, new prerelease version is created automatically by Travis CI, these prerelease versions are called nightly builds. On releasing new nightly build, previous nightly build is removed.

Stable versions

New stable version is created automatically by Travis CI when marking a revision in master branch with a tag in format versionxxx.


Please read for details on our code of conduct, and the process for submitting pull requests to us.


Versions are in format x.y.z, for example 9.1.2. For the versions available, see the tags on this repository.

Nightly builds have additional suffix _nightlyN where N is number which increments with every (automatic) nightly releleas and does not depend on the x.y.z numbers. (This means nightly number is NOT reseted to 0 when releasing stable) Older nightly builds are NOT available through git tags.


The decompiler was originally written by Jindra Petřík also known as JPEXS. The application was made in Czech republic.
