If you are looking for a solution to play Flash without the flash plugin on YouTube, then there are better alternatives. See the "Flash Replacement" section of

I'll be so dissapointed if I can't keep my install OS Jaunty 9.04 - 9.10 with upgrades, as I would like to do. Seems web is changing so fast, that if I don't upgrade, I'll be stuck with tons of things I don't know how to do ! lol :) I love ubuntu-desktop. I love reading the software in Synaptics that you all do. I know you're all very busy right now, as you like to keep it that way :) I've REALLY enjoyed the amazing experience of being with you all, as a mere user... I cannot thank you enough.
