This doesn't directly answer your question, but I've had pretty good
luck using the HQtube script with the Greasemonkey plugin for Firefox.
It plays flash videos with Mplayer or Totem instead of using
Flashplayer.  I think you still need to have Flashplayer installed
(either Adobe's or an open source one) so that the websites won't
complain about not having the right plugins.

Anyway, it's something you might want to look into.
