I just got back from testing a bit rawhide and new Firefox 3 works great and one thing I noticed is that there is a flash plugin in rawhide. I didn't know about swfdec project [1] before only about gnash [2]. I tested a bunch of flash video sites and I only got flash based ads to play. Every video I tried it failed - file plays but only audio. Is this an isolated bug I came across or swfdec is just too early in development to be able to play videos?

Will there be an easy way of installing flash proprietary plugin (as much as we hate it all) if swfdec has no ability to play flash videos? Because users expect that things JustWork, especially their precious youtube :)

You're missing the FLV demuxer and FLV decoders, which are present in
gstreamer-ffmpeg (which you can find on Livna, in their development
repository for example).

There's a feature request about adding missing-plugins support to
swfdec, see:


So there is really going to be proprietary free flash in fedora? Whoow, great news!
