Sorry, but this has nothing to do with flash, although the root cause might be related. Kevin just mentioned that Firefox has issues with hanging with flash as well.
As we told you, there is probably nothing wrong with the compiled stuff, three people including the upstream author (that is, Kevin) confirmed this does not work with Ubuntu, but it works with Fedora.
And although video playback might be working with Totem, I think many people prefer other players, namely mplayer (that at least provide seeking) - and this compiled stuff is to replace the mplayerplugin, so this will likely will have to be dealt with anyway.
(although I understand that mplayr is in universe and firefox in main)
