If the problem is related to a SWF file, attach it here, otherwise we can't help you. I attached the file and hope you can find a way to make it work and be seen by jpexs. Thanks.
The file extension is SWF, but this file is not an SWF file. Like when you rename an exe to swf... Probably it was encrypted, so for FFDec (and any other SWF decompiler) it is only a random binary data, not processable. A valid SWF file should start with FWS, CWS or ZWS characters. Your file starts with 0xB3, 0xC3, 0xBA characters.
