I'm not sure how it's FreeBSD's problem that Flash doesn't work in Opera,
but anyway - the latest Opera release (9.10, in ports now) works very well
with the Linux Flash 7 plugin, or at least the beta I tried a few weeks ago
did, and I assume they didn't break it since. YouTube worked fine, apart
from some loss of sync between the audio & video, but that is apparently
not a FreeBSD-specific problem.
There was a thread about this on -questions about a month ago explaining
what was needed to make it work, although the real 9.10 release, or the
port, might make this easier.
