Hey,
I've had linux on my other computers, and it's always been a real guess as to what I have to install to play flash videos online. I remember swfdec did it one time, then it was gnash another, but now I can't get any of them to play youtube vids! What do I need to install?

Download flash plugin from Adobe site.
Unzip it and copy the "libflashplayer.so" file to "/home/username/.mozilla/plugins" directory.
Restart your mozilla.
now you can watch flash videos in Firefox.
