Back in May, I wrote a post about Flash on FreeBSD using gnash.
Now that gnash-0.8.1 is in the ports tree, I have to say that the greasemonkey+mplayer hack is no longer needed to watch YouTube videos.
Everything works great using gnash alone.
We seem to have different values of “working great”. YouTube works, indeed (though it already worked using a Python script and mplayer) but other random sites using Flash nastiness make Xorg fall over with a bus error.
I think my earlier statement “Flash sucks!” still holds. I’ll stick to www/dummyflash It makes the web a much calmer place too!

If you use Firefox, you should try AdBlock extension – it allows you to play only desired flash clips
