I noticed gnash was installed as a lightspark dependency so, after
having problems with lightspark, I backed up and just focused on
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.
Off-topic but html5 is more of a kludge than html4. There is no need for
it. Everything that can be done in html5 (and more) has been doable in
xhtml for years.
