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

Flash video is going to be pretty much impossible to support in Fedora
itself. The best we can do here is to add codeina support and then
a) hope that fluendo or somebody else offer a legal flash video codec
via that channel


b) someone adds third-party repository support to codeina and we leave
it to the users to find the right repositories

I removed macromedia flash plugin and then installed swfdec and gstreamer-ffmpeg (both from livna) and under Fedora 8 nothing works, not even the audio. I saw that swfdec in F8 is 0.5.3 and in rawhide its 0.5.5 so maybe this is too old version...

I'll reboot to Rawhide and report back.
