well, it works on all flash videos I try to view and at this point, the jre I 
use, and I quote, "default-jre" and I installed "java-gcj-compat-plugin" and 
this allow me to go to Sun's site and "test" my java, which passes.  Prior to 
yesterday, when my system crashed, I used Sun-java6-jre, but at this time, 
there is a circular dep issue stopping the install of that (jre deps on bin, 
which deps on i32-java6-jre which deps on sun-java6-jre, same with java5.)
