Hi Gabriele,

I'm happy to report that I followed your advice
and gnash now plays YouTube videos on my computer

Specifically, I cleaned out non-standard
repositories and did a full upgrade on sid.

But, the last thing I tried before gnash worked?


In any event, thank you for so patiently sharing
your thoughts.

If I ask you nicely, and maybe file a new bug
report, may I please have the benefit of your
informed thoughts on how gnash might work with a
few other, non-YouTube, sites?

Time is the fire in which we all burn.
