Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: gnash

When trying to watch a (Youtube) video via gnash, all that is shown is a
black rectangle with a usable context menu, giving the user to hint why
it doesn't work. When running gnash with the video link directly, it
prompts for a codec installation. After installing the codec and
restarting gnash, the video can be played in gnash directly, but not via
the browser plugin.

Tried using chromium-browser from their dev PPA and Firefox 3.6 from the
Ubuntu Mozillas Daily Build Team PPA.
