I have chromium-15.0.874.121 with linux-f10-flashplugin-11.1r102.55, and 
I set them up as described in the FreeBSD Handbook, and they work OK for 
me. True, I'm not much into games (don't use online games at all) but 
otherwise I've not experienced any problem with sites that use Flash, 
including Youtube.
