> by the way you can use linux-flash7 instead and if you are using the native FreeBSD firefox and not linux-firefox you have to install and use nspluginwrapper or else it will not work, your second alternative is gnash which works natively with firefox.  To use nspluginwrapper you would have to run this after the install.

Aloha Eduardo,

If I am running linux-seamonkey  port is the concept the same to get it 
to work? Which wrapper?

FYI: I have followed the list questions on this issue. So I tried first 
to use flashplugin7 and some websites want 9 or they wont work. The 
sites say you have to use 9.

Thanks for the help.
