I was using the linuxpluginwrapper port successfully with Flash video on
6.1 not long ago.  I couldn't want YouTube videos in the browser at the
time (though I can now, with nspluginwrapper on 6.2), but that's why I
had youtube-dl.  Alas, I haven't had any opportunity to check whether I
have the same problems with that setup for the video in question, since
I'm now using 6.2 and nspluginwrapper.
