It would not work at all. This is only solution for YouTube and Google 
video. It does not even work for
other sites with flash videos (at least I had no success).

For the static content (let say one stock market chart ) linux flash 
plugin 7 used in the native browser via nspluginwrapper- works 
It works better than in Linux browser. Make sure your linux plugin 
wrapper is deinstalled before you install

I left a detailed how to in one of the threads about the flash from 
August I think.
