you don't need flash to view youtobe movies.

simply get URL from there, use youtube-dl from ports to download and play 
with mplayer

possibly (my connection is to slow now to try realtime) you may do

mplayer `youtube-dl -g URL`

by the way you'll get better control of what's going on, and save 
bandwidth by not downloading the movie every time, just once
