I've got 3 computers and gnash only works fairly well with youtube
videos on one of the computers (a laptop with an Intel 945GM, on
an ATI radeon mobility M7 7500 and a Matrox MGA G200 it does not).
Not sure why. Some basic flash videos work fine in all 3, but
some flash files only work on the Intel 945GM-based laptop.
All 3 computers are running identical 8.0-current and ports
(all ports were built on one of the systems and packaged, then
installed on the other 2). This is gnash-devel.
