It works for me with gnash. Not entirely reliably - you sometimes have
to hit 'reload', and there are videos which it seems simply won't play,
but at least 80% do. They do put up a tiresome banner talling you to
upgrade to flash 10, but at least you can close it, and it does still
work with 8/9, unlike so many site that just tell you your flash is
"'too old' - piss off"

Anyone know what the state of actionscript3 support in Free software
is? More and more sites require it.
