Just FTR (although you probably know this), Flash isn't required for
YouTube; you can grab the videos with youtube-dl / clive, and play them
with your favorite video player. There are many advantages to this
method, including:

1) Better playback controls (as per a recent thread here)
2) You have a copy of the video, in case it's removed from YouTube
3) Flash is evil ;)
