[Bug 215620] Re: gnash won't play YouTube vids on Xubuntu hardy testing

I come from bug #327901; see background info there.

It was suggested that this might be this upstream bug:
https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?func=detailitem&item_id=24600 (add a
security exception for the [obviously safe, intentional] self-signed
certificate if firefox complains).

I don't see the ERROR messages mentioned there (e.g. "18:39:47: ERROR:
Unsupported video codec 7")  when running firefox from the terminal,
though I do see some output (it can't find my rc files because I don't
have any).  I can also watch one of the 3 videos
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYKRXx8sLYM) but not the other two
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJOiCsL6eD0 and
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUEkOVdUjHc).  I can't determine from
their bug tracker which version(s) of gnash contain that fix.

It isn't obvious to me that that upstream bug is the problem.
