You will find the help you need there (search for "flash" in the pages, look at
the first occurence) :


short translation from french to english:

Macromedia does not give any flash plugin for FreeBSD. You need to use the linux
plugin. This method should work with Opera and Firefox.

First install linux-flashplugin6 (in /usr/ports/www/linux-flashplugin6).
Second, install linuxpluginwrapper (NOT flashpluginwrapper...)
Then copy /usr/local/share/examples/linuxpluginwrapper/libmap.conf-FreeBSD6 to
/etc/libmap.conf (and edit as you want)

then cd ........ and the two ln :)

Note that flash 7 seems to be known as buggy. I installed flash 6 with that
method yesterday, and it works perfectly on firefox 1.0.7 and FreeBSD

Do not forget to link the files!


Hope this is correct for you, and hope that was clear :)
