That's correct, no tweak need.

The order is no matter. In the pluginpath.ini has  
'/usr/local/lib/npapi/symlinks/linux-opera=1', so it will be pick up. The  
linux-mplayer-plugin/Makefile.npapi framework creates many symlinks if you  
install one of plugins.

# find /usr/local/lib/npapi/symlinks -name \*flashplayer\*

No comment (I am deaf), but last time when I have tried linux-flashplugin9  
and it doesn't work very well such as it crashes to often. Maybe it is  
better now with everything at latest version.
