The SWF specs have been published, but:

	1. You need to agree to a fairly restrictive licence,
	   promising not to use them to build a competing
	   player; and

	2. FLV is not included in the published specs.

The Flash Player is only available for Windows 98 and above, Mac OS X
and x86 versions of Linux, and because of the restrictions on the spec
licence, third parties can't use it to produce players for other
platforms -- they need to reverse engineer the format instead, making
it effectively no better than a closed, proprietary format.
