The wrapper file (nspluginwrapper), as I said, it should be not needed
anymore because most of the plugins (java, adobe flash and/or PDF...) are
nowadays being developed for each architecture separately (mostly i386
and amd64) so there is no need to make "tricks" to run them. It could be
still useful for other architectures, though.
Your other problem was having the Gnash plugin set as the default instead
Adobe flash player. It is still unclear why Gnash refused to load the
videos, but this can be an aside problem.
