I'm running on i386, with flashblock/adblock in my firefox, and both 
videos play fine for me in FF7, opera and midroi.

The first video is (direct link to the SWF), can you try playing it 
directly?  (sorry for such an ugly URL)


Sorry I can't help out, maybe as suggested try flash11. However, it 
maybe a 64bit bug, I've heard of other people having problems when using 
amd64 and flash.
