For my current Arch Linux install I decided not to install flashplayer
or even gnash anymore, but I'm using (used) current version(s) of
Firefox and most, if not all, YouTube videos can be played. I did some
"hardcore" tests, rather ambiguous ;), IOW I tested some
"expressionist"Tubes and couldn't play those videos. I don't know if
it's related to the missing flashplayer, since I also didn't install
tons of proprietary codecs anymore. I can live without
"expressionist"Tubes and I also could live without YouTube, but as
already mentioned, YouTube does work and demo videos for software
usually, perhaps always, can be played too. And I really use Firefox, I
don't confuse it with the Google thingy.
