The best way to try Swfdec is to use a Linux distribution that has
packaged Swfdec, like the latest releases of Ubuntu or Fedora. If you
use a different distribution, ask them.
If you want to install from sources,
http://swfdec.freedesktop.org/wiki/Installation may help you.

Either your distribution provides a way to switch between plugins, or
you have to do it manually - by installing the one you want and
uninstalling the one you don't want. Mozilla doesn't let you chose
which plugin it takes.
