A secret binary under NDA will not make users on all architectures happy
(yes, you can compile once, but maintain the port...?).
I hope that alternatives (silverlight / moonlight) and gnash will make
matters better. Recent gnash snapshots are getting much more usable
(0.8.2rc played Youtube movies just fine).
Gnash has also some nice features - whitelist/blacklist and debugging so
that you can see what URL's is your SWF really accessing. (I have
blacklisted some YT statistics immediately). Another feature I like is
that movies do not have to autostart - you can play them when you click
them. This saves a lot of trouble with hanging/crashing SWF's. Plus,
gnash runs as a separate standalone process, so a crash is not that bad.
