I have a Pentium running Etch with Gnome as the desktop. I use
Iceweasel 126.96.36.199 as the browser.
I want to be able to view Flash movies, so I used Synaptic to get the
Etch backport of mozilla-plugin-gnash from www.backports.org (see my
/etc/apt/preferences file below).
The plugin doesn't work on two sites that I tried, youtube.com, and
On youtube.com, in the place where the movie should play, there is a
white area. Nothing happens.
On lulu.tv, things go a little further. The frame of the movie screen
and its controls come up, and the sound plays, but the screen stays
black with a small green outlined square in the upper left. At the end
of the video, the screen turns orange.
Has anyone else tried to use the gnash from www.backports.org?
