I noticed gnash was installed as a lightspark dependency so, after

seeing if I couldn't finally get gnash operational. Took a tiny bit of
manual file manipulation to get my browser to recognize its existence.
As of this second, it's working in both Opera and chromium-browser.

I've never heard of lightspark.  I installed gnash once a few years ago
and I did gnash (my teeth).

What is your definition of the word "working?"

Heh. I'd take gnash right now.

I just can't bring myself to install the nonfree flash. (I've had a hard enough time convincing myself that it's okay to install non-free drivers and the BIOS firmware update packages.)

Gnash disappeared from testing a little while ago, and the lightspark plugin doesn't play anything, anywhere, ever for me.

Makes me happy that html5 is beginning to catch on.

I agree that gnash was pretty frumpy, but I could at least play videos at youtube. Not sure what folks using Jessie are supposed to do for flash besides go nonfree.

Sorry for the slight off-topic rant.
