But there has been an issue, a friend of mine reported to me. I do not 
know anything about this topic, but I wanted to post it here for 

I have been told that there are various adult tubes on the net, that 
require flash > 7. Since flash9 is obviously not working on freebsd (at 
list it wasn't one month ago) this friend of mine is not able to watch 
those adult tubes.
Due to his reporting, also tools like unplug-xpi did not do the job 
(btw, does this tool EVER download a flv file??)

Well, this of course does not affect me at all, but I wanted to forward 
the issue/feedback to the list.
Of course I will forward the replies back...

At last I can say, I am happy not having any interest in adult tubes and 
therefore not being affected by this topic...
(And I told my friend, he should not be wine-ing about this topic... ^^)

Greez, Tino
