"The popularity of Flash has been a big problem for our community, and
we've been urging people not to use Flash for anything. However, we've
just about solved that problem and we're soon going to release a
version of Gnash which can even handle YouTube."

 GNU Flash player daily snapshots (source) are available from

Its good to see gnash coming along nicely. It plays most of the flash
movies on the net including youtube (BEWARE: it is very slow) movies.
Well you will definitely find movies which does not work as well as
support for newer versions are getting added.

You will need to have quite a lot of dependencies to build it from
source, but the configure script is so helpful it will tell you which
package to install !! like apt-get install or yum package names. Also
gives a nice summary at the end of configure. I think we should fix
all the configure scripts to behave like this.

The developers are pretty helpful and the list is pretty active.

Happy Hacking
