BTW, be sure to use all suggestions on this page if you are using Flash 10.

You are likely missing nsplugnwrapper.i386.  It should work after you 
install it.

Be warned however about the extreme bandwidth problem of running Flash 
videos (like Youtube) over the network.  320x240x30fps video can use 
like 70mbps bandwidth.  That does not scale at all and can cause 
problems unfortunately.

This is one of the key reasons why people wanted local apps, although 
you need more powerful clients with lots of RAM to do local apps.  I 
suspect 1GB is the point where a client becomes safe to use with local 
apps.  512MB is sketchy.
