Hi and sorry for interfering here.

flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound (aka libflashsupport) is needed if
pulseaudio is default sound daemon too, not only for thin clients.

Many new distros (Fedora 8, Ubuntu Hardy, OpenSuSe, perphaps Debian
Lenny) will come with
pulseaudio as default sound server (replacing esound) and flash will
don't work if
libflashsupport isn't installed. (pulseaudio open exclusive alsa device
and flashplugin can't open)

I have enabled pulseaudio in Debian unstable many months ago and I
use with libflashsupport without problems.

Some times iceweasel crash with youtube videos, but I don't know if it's
caused by flashplugin or libflashsupport.
