I have periodically tested with getting flash working, and everytime I
try it fails and I go back to undoing everything I have done and
re-installing gnash. Gnash works but it does have a few niggles.
I tried the following:

Everything installed easily and about:plugins has Shockwave Flash and
FutureSplash Player as enabled. But, when I go to youtube.com all I get a black
screen and the video doesn't load.
Does anyone have any ideas why flash isn't working?
