Also works here with 6-stable and linux-firefox. So far I've only seen crashes 
on youtube but only after 20sec-1min of playback. Sometimes i have to reload 
the page for the sound to work. 

In linux-opera the plugin crashes more often, even on simple movies, and when 
it works still no sound.

About a month ago I've tried to make the plugin work with native firefox by 
modifying the linuxpluginwrapper. The plugin was being recognized by the 
browser but i crashed on playback. Any one else tried this? 

As a side note the flash7 plugin also stopped workind with native firefox & 
opera after the linuxpluginwrapper update. After tweeking linuxpluginwrapper 
( compat_linux/linux_ioctl.c - adding a wrapper for FIONREAD ) the plugin 
started working (only in opera ) as in sound and context menu but no image. 
Any one working on this also? 

All of these is on 6-stable updated about a month ago and with ports updated
